Northern Neck Real Estate for Sale (Waterfront specialists)
Search here for all types of Northern Neck of Virginia Real Estate--a perfect retirement location
Closing in on the 1st of August and we have a potentially rainy weekend to look forward to. Obviously it has its plusses and minuses and it all depends who you are and what you need for weather this weekend. I'm putting up some residential statistics today and will follow up with land statistics tomorrow or Sunday. To date there are fewer properties that have sold (residential) than last year but the drop isn't significant. But in both the total residential and the total waterfront residential (subset) the dollars spent in 2017 are quite a bit higher. This means, as we've already noted last month, that more properties are selling at the higher prices than were in 2016. And 2016 was our best sales year since 2008 brought us to a big slowdown.
The statistics that are put up at least weekly (see top left button) should help you get a better idea of what is going on. Generally they cover sales in the four counties of the Northern Neck which include Westmoreland, Lancater, Northumberland and Richmond. Really once you get to know the area you realize how diverse these locations are. Well happy hunting....for great real estate deals. You can find them here and now. It is still a buyer's market.
The market is busy. There's plenty going on and there are plenty of properties for you to look at. Keep in mind that it is still a buyer's market. There are lots of people looking for property now and there's no reason why you can't take the step to find your perfect home or getaway. For those who already know the Northern Neck, well it is a given that it is a beautiful place with many rivers and creeks to explore and enjoy. The Chesapeake Bay is closeby too and fishing can be extraordinary. Add to that historic sites, golf courses, some good restaurants (but be forewarned that off-season they are mostly closed), and you should certainly take a look.
There's lots to be learned in the course of buying or selling a house and we can offer the best of perspective. Looking to sell and we'll do a free market analysis and let you know just where your house fits in terms of sales and what is on the local Northern Neck market. Considering buying but you just aren't sure where the properties you are considering fit in, well we can give you that perspective that only a local professional has. Ones with years in the business and a way of looking at what seems complex but can be put into context. Call us and see!!
Our statistics are the only ones out there that can give you a real sense of what is going on. Isn't it better to know if our market is improving rather than asking around and getting anecdotal information. We have the numbers.
The beauty of the place and the relative reasonableness in price of many of the homes is bringing buyers and sellers together this year in better numbers than we've seen in the last few years. This is good for everyone...for those who have been wanting to sell and for those who have been wanting to have a place here to call their own.
Thinking of buying...then please consider joining us here in the Northern Neck to enjoy a world that includes properties on the Rappahannock and Potomac rivers as well as the Chesapeake Bay.

River & Rural Realty's broker (Kathryn Murray) moved here from two major metropolitan areas and understands what it takes to transition to this quieter part of the world. We all have a lot of local perspective and experience, so call on us for assistance. (As you'll hear said "we know the 'Neck." And we do.) There are a set of reviews about her, as well as more on her background on the other buttons to the left. Those reviews are through a third party....no one was asked to do anything other than review....
(These photos were all taken within walking distance of where broker, Kathryn Murray lives...and takes lots of photos. She is represented at the Rappahannock Art League in Kilmarnock.)
