How to find a good fit Realtor in Blacksburg, VA?

Answer

Spagani, I'm sorry to hear that, but you're right - you've got to find a good fit. I tell clients all the time, you're gonna "date" your agent for a few months, you have to be sure you like them that much.If you'd like to take this off Zillow, I'd be glad to set up a time to meet at my office and discuss. My style isn't for everyone, of course, but I'm happy to walk you through some of the ways I like to handle a buyer search, and let you decide whether or not that works for you. Be wary of situations where folks will say "I can find you an agent" ... you want to find someone that YOU have selected, and vetted.Glad to talk more. [Content removed by Zillow Moderator. Please see our Good Neighbor Policy] if Zillow will allow me to post that, or you can reach me through my profile above. No obligations, no games.- Jeremy

QUESTIONABLE ZILLOW ESTIMATE

Answer

Hi Cooter42 - your situation isn't unique to Zillow.  I wrote about this back in 2007 [website hotlink removed by Zillow moderator]), the disparity between market value - what a buyer says your home is worth - and what the tax assessor says it's worth is way too broad.  Zillow has improved its' algorithm since 2007, but it's still not accurate, particularly in Blacksburg.  If you look at this link (http://www.zillow.com/how ... acyVA.htm), Blacksburg isn't even included in the list of areas they're tracking, so it's very hard to get information that's terribly valuable.If you're really interested in a market value assessment, I can help with that.  Heck, even if you're just curious, I'll be glad to look at it sometime - you can reach me at [website removed by Zillow moderator]All the best!

Can you provide more details including structure, build year, home association fee, etc?

Answer

The home was built in 1968, and is a two-story Dutch Colonial design. The main living area of the house is on the upper level, with a lower level centered around a den w/ fireplace, laundry room and half bath, and the two-car garage with additional storage cubbies. There is NO association fee for this section of Northside Park.

Answer

This was a question I recently received from a Zillow user that I thought would be helpful for everyone. The home is a frame-built home with Southern exposure - we have no information on whether the exterior walls are 2x4 or 2x6, but the home is both brick and siding exterior. It was built in 1968 as part of the original Northside Park subdivision, and does NOT have an association fee.
