Find Your Vision and Your Dream in Your

Country Home

CAAR REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.CAAR.COM

BY CARLA HUCKABEE

THEY PULLED UP IN THEIR AIRSTREAM from Georgia determined to stay until they found the perfect place for a new home. They thought about Richmond, then decided they wanted something less urban with a few acres. After weeks of searching, they found a five-acre lot in the Keswick area that matched their vision and moved in right before Christmas. The Airstream couple is not alone. The drive to rural areas is getting shorter and shorter with fewer barriers for people who always dreamt of owning a country home. It’s easy to point the finger at COVID for the surge in interest in country living. Or give all the credit to permission to work from home. Other factors coming into play are people with cash seeking a larger return or wanting to diversify out of the stock market. Or they just want to have a little more flexibility than they do in urban areas. It’s all those things and more. Whatever the reasons, people are still moving to the country faster than the market can keep up.

COVID a Major Driver At the onset of the pandemic, people exited cities in large numbers. Some left because the economic shutdowns took away most of the reasons they were living in town. Others wanted to put a little room between them and their neighbor to minimize exposure. While the mass migration has slowed significantly, country living is still drawing significant numbers of movers. “When office workers originally were sent home to work in March of 2020, nobody anticipated that we’d still have significant numbers working from home nearly two years later,” says Pam Dent, REALTOR® with Gayle Harvey Real Estate, Inc. “During this past year, it’s become apparent that some people don’t have to go back to the office five days a week, or even at all. And that group is reevaluating where they live. If they always dreamed of owning a country home, there is no better time to make the move.” Folks who bought second homes as a weekend escape during 2020 and early

2021 are beginning to look at those assets in a different light. Stephanie Woolfolk, REALTOR® with RE/MAX Realty Specialists, says, “Whether homeowners bought to have an escape from urban areas or as an investment, as the pandemic wore on they started to see the appeal of spending more and more time at their second home. That is certainly made easier as employers continue to offer options for employees to work from home.”

Real Estate Investment They had $400,000 sitting in the bank earning next to nothing. Leery of putting more money in the stock market, they started shopping around for real estate. Luckily, their Washington DC location put Louisa County within striking distance. And there, they found the perfect home, paid cash for it, and now spend more time there than in their primary home. These aren’t the only people Sharon Merrick, REALTOR® with Howard Hanna Roy Wheeler Realty Co., sees eyeing rural

properties for their next real estate investment. “Often we see potential buyers from the city looking for a second home and the opportunity for someone else to pay their mortgage through Airbnb. And it doesn’t always work out.” She was working with a client from California who owned a string of shortterm rental properties in the San Francisco area and several western states. He wanted to branch out into the Central Virginia market and had his sights set on a property in rural Albemarle County. Fortunately, Merrick was aware of his goals for the property and was able to advise him of the restrictions around operating short-term rentals in Albemarle County before he made the purchase. “It’s critical that both the buyer and their REALTOR® have a clear picture of how this property is going to be used and what the goals are, particularly for a buyer from out of the area who might not be aware of local restrictions. Even local buyers aren’t always informed of regulations that impact the potential use of a property they want to buy.”

Dent recently assisted someone from out of state wanting to buy a tree farm. Although that’s not a common buyer profile, it was Dent’s understanding of the critical nature of water, soil quality, and other landscape features in that kind of operation that led to a successful purchase. Whatever the goals might be, having the guidance of a knowledgeable REALTOR® is crucial for a rewarding real estate investment.

Affordable and Transformative Buyers shopping for country homes often are looking either for a change in their lifestyle or for affordability. It’s no secret that the Charlottesville real estate market drives many homebuyers further out to find a home they can afford. Rural Albemarle and all the adjacent counties are seeing interest from this Charlottesville-centric market effect. Woolfolk says, “Sometimes it’s the combination of affordability and lifestyle changes that puts these rural counties on a buyer’s radar. If you compare Louisa County to the Charlottesville area, Louisa is much more affordable. And you get more bang for your buck. “Comparing what $300,000 will buy in Charlottesville versus Louisa is like night and day. And on top of the reduced purchase price, you benefit from the ongoing cost savings in property taxes. All that comes with more space, a garage, and a yard for the kids to play. It’s easy to see why buyers are flocking to country homes.” Merrick is seeing the same dynamic with her clients moving from urban to rural areas for that lifestyle change. “I have buyers from DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia who want to transform their lives. They want to trade in all the urban busyness, the commute, the chaos and adopt a calmer lifestyle closer to nature. COVID forced a lot of people outside and they realized they enjoy those outdoor activities and want to make them part of their everyday lives. “Many people are just looking for a little more space. Room enough to have a garden and not feel like neighbors are sitting on top of them. And views. Our rural counties in Central Virginia come with some of the best views. For someone moving from the city, it can seem like a dream when their dollars go further, their lifestyle is transformed, and they get these great views of the Blue Ridge Mountains or rolling hills and streams.”

CAAR REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.CAAR.COM

But Can I Download? Sometimes, what is not there becomes the barrier to buying that otherwise dream rural property. Merrick says, “Buyers can sometimes be clueless about what’s not available. They didn’t even consider that internet service might not be available or as speedy as they are accustomed to. A client from Philadelphia who wanted to relocate to this rural property had to step back and re-evaluate once he realized he couldn’t get a fiber-optic connection and a download speed of 1,000 megabits per second. “That’s not an uncommon scenario. I was assisting a physician from Maryland relocating to Augusta County. He needed a powerful home connection to be able to

read radiology and other imaging files. Because of that, he was extremely limited as to where he could buy a home in a rural setting and still have the internet speeds needed.” But hang on, that’s all about to change. New grants of $2 billion will establish universal broadband throughout many underserved rural counties in Central Virginia. The Thomas Jefferson Planning District is partnering with Firefly Fiber Broadband to target Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Madison, Nelson, and other counties. This infusion of funds puts Virginia on track to be one of the first states to have nearly universal broadband. Dent expects this to make a real difference. “People who want to move here now, have to be very selective about how rural they really can be. This Firefly Fiber Broadband project is going to open up all these rural properties that people just can’t consider now, especially if they are working from home or operating a business. There is a lot of interest from people out of state and once the broadband is in place, I think we’ll see much of that pent-up demand turn into purchases.” While the expansion won’t happen overnight, the timeline is short. The entire construction project involves laying 4,000 miles of fiber and will take approximately three years to complete. Some areas will come online sooner than others. You can keep up to date on Firefly’s Regional Internet Service Expansion Project’s progress at www. fireflyva.com/rise. Greene County, for instance, is expected to be fully covered by 2024. So, 2022 might be the ideal window in which to buy a few acres in the country. You’ll be a bit ahead of the curve, buying while views of the Blue Ridge or the South River are still available. Because it won’t be too long before the folks from Philadelphia, Northern Virginia, and other urban centers realize they no longer have to choose

between internet access and all that rural Central Virginia has to offer. Aside from internet access, Woolfolk cautions new country dwellers not to romanticize rural life. If you’re accustomed to having Grit Coffee within walking distance for your morning joe and Marie Bette nearby for that irresistible pastry, the move can be an adjustment. “Living in the country can take some getting used to, not having everything within an easy walk or short drive. And larger lots mean more time and money spent on maintenance to care for the property. “If you are currently able to work from home due to COVID, what is the plan if you are called back to the office, even if it’s only two or three days a week? Are you prepared to make the commute from your new rural home? Or is there a plan B?”

Market Balancing? Like the rest of the real estate market in Central Virginia, country homes and lots for sale are in short supply. Dent says, “There are not nearly enough rural properties on the market to meet the demand. I know some sellers wait until after the holidays to list their homes, so we should be seeing a bit of a bounce now and over the next couple of months. Will it be enough to satisfy demand? Probably not, but any listings help buyers at this point.” Home prices continue to rise at double-digit rates while days on market continue to fall in almost every rural county in Central Virginia. Merrick advises “Buyers need to be prepared to act quickly when a property becomes available that fits their wish list or even comes close. “Everyone has a vision and a dream. And in most cases, they are looking for the perfect setting for the perfect home.” In this market, something even close to your dream might be good enough. Carla Huckabee writes about high-performing real estate.

Buyers shopping for country homes often are looking either for a change in their lifestyle or for affordability. It’s no secret that the Charlottesville real estate market drives many homebuyers further out to find a home they can afford.

This detects smoke.

We detect smokescreens.

Housing discrimination isn’t always obvious.

These are the kinds of smokescreens you might run into:

“Sorry, we’ve changed our minds about selling.”

“We just rented that apartment.”

“It doesn’t look like you qualify for the loan.”

If you believe you may be a victim of housing discrimination, contact HUD or your local Fair Housing Center:

Your Choice. Your Right. Your Home. A public service message from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in partnership with the National Fair Housing Alliance. The federal Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status or disability. For more information, visit www.hud.gov/fairhousing.
