Charlottesville Luxury Homes COVID-Induced Charlottesville Real Estate Sales Boom

Sales of Charlottesville luxury homes have been booming as wealthy buyers flee New York, Washington, D.C., and Richmond. Also, due to the limited inventory of move-in ready homes, Charlottesville luxury home prices have increased by 11.7% since this time last year.

Charlottesville luxury home buyers are beginning to realize that a five day work week can now be spread out as long or as short as they want, as long as their work gets done. They also don't require to work from an office outside their residence (which means bad news for the Charlottesville commercial markets).

"The COVID-induced Charlottesville real estate market is like no other," says Toby Beavers, a Charlottesville luxury realtor since 2003. "Heed my advice, in today's unusual real estate boom, our local buyers are looking for immediate occupancy. But to do so it's important that you have previously spoken to a lender, been pre-approved, and work with a knowledgeable Charlottesville luxury realtor (if you want to save money and not pay full price). We are seeing a greater sales increase in Charlottesville luxury condos and townhouses as out-of-town buyers quickly learn that living pent-up in an apartment in New York for years is not their idea of a quality life. Once they realize what Charlottesville has to offer, they quickly see the benefits of living in a college town full of history, great golf courses, and excellent schools."

Charlottesville luxury townhouses are also flying off the shelf and most will not be ready until late Fall or Winter of 2021.

Meanwhile sales and prices are rising in high end communities such as Farmington, Glenmore, and Keswick Estates. Anything new or remodeled (90% don't want to purchase a home and then have do a lot of work) is selling quickly (as long as the price is not out-of-line).

Move-in ready Crozet luxury homes by Stanley Martin, Craig Builders, and Southern Development are also popular. "This mind-boggling trend isn't expected to slow for those who can afford new Charlottesville luxury homes," Beavers adds.

Meanwhile, many Charlottesville luxury condo owners are putting their condos back on the market knowing they can command top dollar from New Yorkers looking for some fresh air and a wonderful lifestyle.
