New numbers are in for Housing and 2017 and the surprising thing that I see is that listing totals for the area are up over the same period with almost a 5% improvement over 2016 numbers. Inventory has been one of the biggest complaints that I have heard about the Richmond market this spring but this shows that there were more houses for sale than last year. Pending home sales are up from 2016 by 6.74% and sold are up a whopping 9.81% over last year.The condo/townhouse market has been even better with listings up 14.74% over last year, pendings up 16.82% and sold units up 21.25% over last year.

Our agents write often to give you the latest insights on owning a home or property in the Central Virginia area.
April has been our agent for selling our home 2 years ago (and the immediate purchase of the next house to live in), then again recently for an investment house as a rental. She listened to our needs (and they’ve changed each time), responds promptly to any correspondence, kept us well informed about ‘next steps’ when we got into negotiating and actual buying. I never worried about anything with April, since her knowledge of the market and everything about buying/selling a house was so complete.…

Working with Dustin Hicks at [Explore Realty Group] was beyond awesome. Buying a home is the largest purchase most people make in a lifetime and even more so when its their first time buying, and having a realtor who cares about your needs, your wants and your budget is mandatory. Dustin and the team were incredible to work with. Dustin was patient and always made sure to give me his professional opinion and make sure to watch out for me in any way possible. I was a first time home buyer stressi…

We can’t thank Chris Raimo and Joyner Fine Properties enough for helping us with the sale of our home and getting us into our dream house. Chris and his team were on hand, day or night, to answer our questions and help guide us in the right direction. Above anything the else, the responsiveness and communication helped get us through this process without adding extra stress. We couldn’t be happier with our experience.

Curt helped us to purchase our sixth property and he is by far the best realtor we have ever used. He was extremely knowledgeable about the properties he showed us as well as informative about the area. Curt was very responsive to questions we had and was a pleasure to work with. He went above and beyond what we expected from an agent, even helping us to get settled in long after the closing. We highly recommend Curt to anyone and would certainly call on him in the future.

April Lane was absolutely amazing to work with! My husband and I sold his old home and bought a new one together. Right from the beginning April had everything laid out for us. Our situation was a bit complicated but April was there at every turn letting us know what to expect next and to keep our hopes up. She brought in several showings and helped us navigate the offers that came in. Once we finally had a contract she helped us find our dream home that same weekend! It was everything we wanted…

Curt did a wonderful job taking me around and showing me all of the houses that interested me. He spent a lot of time walking me through the home-buying process and giving me honest opinions to all of my questions. I could not have asked for better support.

Working with Poore, Reichstetter & Associates [Explore Realty Group], Joyner Fine Properties was really a great experience for my husband and I when looking to relocate to Richmond from Ohio. We were a little unsure about being able to find the right fit in an agent to work with as we were long distance, but after meeting with Blake Poore for the first time, our minds were at ease. He took us on a marathon house hunt the first day (per our request) since we had limited time in town, and we wer…

April is professional yet caring, she help me through the process of buying and then selling a home explaining everything in a way that was easy to understand so that I could be the one making the decisions.

As a first-time purchaser, Joyner Fine Properties expertly de-mystified the home buying process from beginning to end. Their attention to detail ensured all my concerns were addressed in a timely fashion. Just as importantly, they were friendly to work with and made searching for my new home as enjoyable as possible. I highly recommend Joyner for your future real estate needs – I know I’ll use them for mine!
Your team did a great job selling our condominium. They put together a professional website, interfaced with prospective buyers and their agents, and negotiated effectively on my behalf.
