Real estate prices are on the rise, with the average price of a home in Virginia now up nearly 10% from a year ago.
And while the numbers are good news for the average homeowner, the number of properties that are available to rent for as little as $1,000 a month has risen significantly.
The good news is that a number of potential renters are getting their homes ready for sale, and in many cases, the sale price will be significantly lower than the asking price.
But with the popularity of private real estate as a viable investment and with the rise of a large number of homebuyers on the market, there are a number properties that will probably go for a good price at a lower than expected price.
In fact, according to the Real Estate Board of Virginia, just 4% of properties listed for sale in Virginia are actually owned by renters.
And there are some properties that aren’t for sale that are just waiting to be found.
A number of the properties listed here are the most desirable of Virginia’s private realty listings, but they are often hard to find because of their rarity.
The following properties are often listed in a rare spot and are waiting for someone to come along and flip the property for the best price possible.
