Review of Charlottesville, Virginia

Fun but expensive
Star Rating - 3/5/2019
Charlottesville is a beautiful college town. Just be forewarned that it comes with a lot of traffic and very high real estate prices. A small colonial in town in a good area can run close to a million. A new house way out in Crozet, 15 miles away, is 600. UVA hospital and medical providers are good. Surrounding countryside is beautiful. Students are privileged and entitled and hearing about The University is tiresome. Best for rich young professionals, OK for families, not navigable for seniors unless you're a great walker..

Really?? Because I'm looking at and finding exceptionally nice 2-3 BR townhouses, with low taxes and HOA fees for under $300K in very low crime neighborhoods.
