Retirement - 4/13/2011
The personal property tax and insurance will drive me out when I retire. My federal retirement will be taxed by the state also. Read More

Double digit losses in 2010, more of the same pred - 1/19/2011
In 2010, Virginia beach endured a 12% dip in housing prices, and now talking heads are saying that they expect 2011 to be another poor year with a 10% or more drop in prices. Factor in foreclosure inventory lingering in the background, and the area's homeowners could be upside-down on their mortgages for some time to come.  Read More

Va Beach - 9/21/2010
Overcrowded, over priced, angry, noisy, stressful and dirty. I have lived in VA Beach my entire life (41 years) and have seen a beautiful rural community develop into the hussle and bussle that destroys quality of life. Maybe it is just me, but I preferred a quiter VA Beach where you knew the police and they knew you (or at least your family). A place where people waved when you drove past their house. Those days are gone. Time to look elsewhere for me and my family to find Read More

Cost of Housing in the USA - 9/1/2010
Hi,

My name is Mark Dickenson.

I am amazed at the cost of housing in the USA. I just saw that the median price of a home in Dickenson county Virginia is $US65,000. In Australia we are lucky to by a run down home on less than 1/4 of an acre of land for under $US440,000.

I would suggest to Americans, that you start approaching Australians to look at purchasing Real Estate in the USA.

Why ?
1) To start with, Australia is the only western country that has not been in recession. The latest figures show that the economy in Australia is still growing.

2) Australians have been ripped off with the cost of housing in Australia for the last twenty years. Even with the current AU$/US$ exchange rate, Australians can buy 6 of your houses for the cost of one of ours with a good deal of money left to renovate.

3) Australia has been allied with the USA since WW2. If you cant trust us, you can not trust anyone.Read More

Awesome place to raise kids...breath taking - 7/26/2010
As a seasoned real estate agent,I have been all over the hampton roads area of Virginia. I can say with out a doubt I love all Virginia Beach has to offer. We have beautiful beaches, a water park (Ocean Breeze), aquarium, plenty of shopping and a new performing arts center (Sadler Center)in the heart of Virginia beach. Not to mention the beautiful homes and hidden mansions tucked away in the city.

The children are not exposed to the crime of a urban city. Instead it is a mixure of country and a little city. This gives children a balanced exposure. The schools here are great as well as the people. Dont be surprised If you see several stickers saying "Virginia is for lovers"..its true.:)

The housing market right now is excellent for buyers. Currently there are decent priced homes to choose from now if you are ready to enjoy the well desired beach life. Feel free to look at property at www.aqilarealestate.com

living here : ) - 6/21/2010
I chose the quality of life topic because the quality of life in Va. Beach is great. I have lived in Buffalo NY (once a great place to live) and in No. Virginia (to congested, to expensive, to many people who don't speak English). Virginia Beach is a great place to raise a family. I have been here 16 years and I love all the things there is to do here and within a few hours drive of here. I WOULDN'T live anywhere Read More

Virginia Beach: Military Suburban Sprawl - 4/16/2010
I have been living in Virginia Beach now for about 3.5 years and unfortunately I do not like it. I find Virginia Beach and South Hampton Roads in general to be boring and lacking in true diversity (despite the military presence here). I also do not find the people here to be very friendly. People are pretty aggressive and not in a good way... and having been born and raised in the North East that's really saying something. This is definitely a military town and you will not fit in unless you are connected to the military or have close family that is. Unfortunately, I have also experienced what I feel is subtle prejudice.

The good about Virginia Beach? This city has a lot of trees! Beautiful trees. Also, the beach is close by and while the abundance of mis-matched hotel chains screw up the natural beauty of the beach, it is still very nice to scroll down the Virginia Beach boardwalk during the off Read More
