Retirees May Want to Rethink Home Ownership

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 11, 2018

Abberly at Southpoint, Fredericksburg, VAHome ownership has long held an honored position as an integral part of the American dream.

But when retirement time comes, rethinking that dream could be in order. Sometimes renting an apartment is the better bet both financially and in terms of the retiree’s changing lifestyle and health.

When people plan for retirement, they focus on things like how much they have saved, how much Social Security will pay, and whether they have pension. But as you get older, you also need to think about such issues as whether you can keep mowing the lawn or handling other day-to-day chores that homeownership requires. If you must hire someone to do them for you, how much will that eat into what may already be a tight monthly budget?

The truth: There’s no answer that will fit everyone’s situation. So, retirees or those approaching retirement, should weigh their personal pros and cons.

There’s a lot to think about. Should you sell the house you raised your family in and downsize to something more suitable for just the two of you? If you’re planning to move to somewhere else in the country to enjoy your retirement, is it more prudent to buy in that new location, or is leasing the way to go to give you more flexibility if it doesn’t work out?

Some things retirees should think about as they ponder the own verses rent question include:

Maintenance issues. When you own a home, every leaky faucet, electrical problem or faulty appliance is yours to handle as best you can. If you can do it yourself, great; but often, these household repairs mean calling in a professional at a sometimes-exorbitant cost. When you rent, it’s up to the landlord or the property management company to take care of the repairs.

Mobility. Selling a house can be a long and complicated process, and you never know what the market might be like when the time arrives. Whereas breaking a lease is much simpler. If your children are scattered all over the country, you may want to move closer to one of them. Also, if your health takes a turn for the worse, selling a home can be a significant burden on your family.

The inheritance. For many people, a house is the most valuable asset in their estate and they might want to leave it to their children in the will. Once again, it’s a matter of weighing the pros and cons. Having a home to pass down to the children is a noble gesture, but it is not always feasible.

Before considering whether owning or renting is the right option, it’s essential to review all the intricacies of your situation and decide based on your finances and your overall health and well-being.

Millennials Are Renting Around Virginia

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, September 27, 2018

Abberly at Southpoint, Fredericksburg, VAThe so-called Millennial generation is all about bucking tradition. They’re marrying later. They’re all in favor of nap rooms and ping pong tables in the office.

And they’re renting apartments instead of buying.

That’s not to say they don’t want to purchase a single-family home eventually:

A survey report showed that as many as 75 percent of those young Americans born into Generation Y do want to own their own home, and most (66 percent) want to do so in the bucolic (Virginia) suburbs.

They just don’t want to do it yet:

Another recent report found that a full half of Millennials rent their homes, a figure up markedly from the 37 percent of renters surveyed just five years ago.

But why?

Why are Millennials choosing to rent, and not buy?

Purchasing a home means acquiring more debt. The most obvious reason millennials are opting to rent is the crippling debt many find themselves with in their early 20s. According to the Institute for College Access & Success, 7 in 10 college students who graduated in 2012 have student loan debt. The average amount: a staggering $29,400 – and many others graduate even deeper in the hole. The amount of student loan debt has increased an average of 6 percent per year since 2008, and there is no sign of the trend stopping.

With student debt looming, it’s no wonder millennials favor a monthly rental check over additional mortgage debt. While mortgage payments can be more affordable than rent in some cities, recent graduates likely don’t have the funds necessary to make a down payment. Beyond having money for a down payment on a home, some millennials simply don’t qualify for a mortgage. Whether they are saving up for a down payment or choose to rent as a long-term housing decision, renting allows millennials to move out quickly without the immediate financial squeeze that comes with homeownership.

Apartment life is more affordable than owning a home. In addition to the upfront cost of a down payment and a mortgage, managing a house comes with a lot of additional costs: Homeowners must pay property tax, maintenance and repairs, utilities and perhaps even association fees on top of their mortgage. An apartment requires rent and utilities, which is much more manageable for a millennial on a tight budget.

To take advantage of apartment amenities. Many apartment complexes offer amenities such as fitness centers, pools, a concierge and on-site maintenance – perks that don’t usually come with your first home purchase. Though renting an apartment in a building that has luxury amenities can come with a bigger price tag, the features cut down on other bills. Instead of paying for a gym membership and rent, renters in these buildings can pay one price and get both. In fact, the idea of having access to amenities is so appealing to some young people that they plan to rent for a while.

To enjoy city life. Many young people choose to live in urban areas because they like the atmosphere. They can walk to grocery stores, take public transportation, find night spots easily, see live concerts and access great restaurants. Millennials drawn to the energy of metropolitan areas likely can’t afford to own a home there. If city living is a priority, they’ll sacrifice homeownership to get the location, and that means renting.

To maintain flexibility and freedom. Recent college graduates want to have the freedom to move around. They’re just beginning their careers and haven’t decided when and where to settle. For this reason, renting an apartment instead of moving right into homeownership is often the smarter choice. Young people can move for a new job or to simply try out another city without being tied down to a mortgage. Rather than settling down immediately after college, millennials are focused on finding the right job, a city that fits their personality and trying new things.

The countdown to Halloween is on, making fall’s deliciously spooky appeal undeniable. Where so much history fills the air, the Fredericksburg Area is said to have more ghosts than any other area in America. Locals tell tales of whispers heard in historic halls, tavern objects moving on their own, ghostly girls and apparitions of soldiers. Visit Kenmore Plantation, Chatham Manor, join a Ghosts of Fredericksburg Tour or Olde Town Carriage Ghost Tour to decide for yourself – it might be more than the brisk fall weather giving you that chill.

4. Craft Breweries

Raise a pint to fall with the complex flavors of a fine craft beer at a Fredericksburg brewery. Start your tap tour in Downtown Fredericksburg, where a new dining experience awaits at Spencer Devon Brewing. Nearby Adventure Brewing South is famous for classic lagers, seasonal stouts and ales.

Smith Bowman Distillery, where premium whiskey, rum, vodka and gin are handcrafted in small batches from the finest ingredients.

Make your visit part of a journey through Stafford and Spotsylvania to discover four wineries and a brewery along the Grapes and Grains Trail.

Learn about the struggle for African American education at the John J. Wright Educational & Cultural Center Museum. Your brush with authentic American history definitely begins in Fredericksburg.

8. Downtown Finds 

Fall color rules in Downtown Fredericksburg this time of year, as harvest gold, brilliant orange and crimson red show up on everything from Main Street maple trees to gift shop windows. On a walking tour filled with interesting shops, classic Americana and tasty fare, you may wonder if you’ve crossed into another dimension – a timeless one. Order your favorite 20th century treat at the oldest continuously operating soda fountain in America, Goolrick’s Modern Pharmacy. Raise a mug to 1792 at the Rising Sun Tavern. Duck into Hugh Mercer’s Apothecary Shop to learn about the herbal remedies that kept colonial moms on top of their game.

Millennials Are Moving to Virginia

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Abberly at Southpoint, Fredericksburg, VAIt is estimated that there are around 71 million millennials in America and they are expected to surpass the number of baby boomers in 2019. That makes millennials a coveted generation for cities looking to bolster their workforce and tax base. But millennials are notorious for their quixotic preferences and figuring out where they will head to next can be difficult. It’s a worthwhile undertaking though: where millennials decide to move has enormous impact on local markets, from the cost of a mortgage to whether or not you will be able to find a good avocado toast in your neighborhood.

SmartAsset used Census Bureau data to find out where are millennials moving. To track millennials’ mobility, we looked at immigration and emigration data from the U.S. Census Bureau for 217 cities. Check out our data and methodology below to see where we got our data and how we put it together to create our final rankings.

Key Findings

  • Old Dominion is popular – Virginia takes three spots in our top 10. In particular the southeastern portion of the state makes appearances in the top 10.

  • Big Apple no more – New York took the bottom spot on this list again. In particular residents seem to be leaving the city to venture into other states. In total around 69,200 residents moved to New York from out of state while nearly 95,000 left the Big Apple for another state.

The States Where Millennials Are Moving

4. Virginia

The South makes up the rest of the states in our top 10. The no. 2 ranking state is Texas, with a net influx of nearly 34,000 millennials, followed by Virginia which gained 18,300 more millennials than it lost.

Reasons Why You Should Move to Virginia Now!

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, August 09, 2018

Abberly at Southpoint, Fredericksburg, VAThis is for those who don't live here. The ones who are looking for a new location, but aren’t sure. Or maybe you’re in Virginia, but your best friend lives somewhere else. Better yet, your parents have retired and you could use some family close by. Whoever you are, if any of these apply to you – or someone you know – then its time to call the moving trucks.

1. You love all 4 seasons.

Winters are cold, sure. But the snow is pretty and it’s rarely too much – this isn’t Boston after all. Summers are hot – that’s why we have so many amazing lakes, beaches and rivers. But you can have hot or cold anywhere. In Virginia, it’s spring and fall that make all it all worthwhile.

2. You want to be at the heart of it all.

Virginia is within a day’s drive of 50% of the U.S. population. So “but I’ll never see my old friends” is simply not an excuse!

3. You love the mountains.

You can reach some of the most beautiful mountains in the world within just a few hours from anywhere in Virginia.

4. But you also love the beach.

Same goes for the beach. We have some of the most amazing beaches anywhere and they’re all within a half-day’s drive, no matter where you live in the state.

5. You appreciate a good economy.

The Washington Post calls Virginia “the best state in America” when it comes to managing budgets shortfalls. We’ve managed to keep the economy on an even keel even when the rest of the world seems to be in a spin.

6. You want the best schools for your undergrads.

Virginia has 3 of the top 40 public colleges and universities in the nation: University of Virginia (#2), the College of William and Mary (#6) and Virginia Tech (#27). But that’s saying nothing of all of other amazing schools, public and private – you can’t go wrong with a Virginia education.

7. And your under-undergrads.

For your pre-college crew, rest assured that good schools abound. Wallethub, an online financial site, ranks Virginia k-12 schools #7 in the nation.

8. You’re looking for a great place to retire.

Maybe it’s time to be closer to the grandkids. Virginia is the perfect place to land when you’re ready to put your feet up. Forbes named Blacksburg one of its top places to retire in the nation thanks to a cost of living 7% below the national average, low crime and good housing. Williamsburg tops the U.S. News and World Reports list for historic places to retire.

9. You’re an entrepreneur.

Forbes has ranked Virginia as #1 for best places for business. For you big business moguls out there, 23 Fortune 500 companies are headquartered here.

10. You consider shopping a valid form of exercise.

Whether you’re looking for high-fashion shopping or just a day out antiquing, Virginia has some of the best finds on the East Coast.

11. Or you take your exercise very seriously.

For those of you with a competitive streak, Virginia hosts races of every kind – from marathons and triathlons to dress-crazy-and-jump-in the mud obstacle races. There’s something for everyone and no shortage of people to get out there and train with you.

12. Wine and cheese are two of your favorite food groups.

Virginia wine country is beyond compare. Our award-winning wines, 230+ vineyards and incredible countryside can’t be beat. Have some cheese with that wine – we have hundreds of locally made-in-Virginia cheeses available at farmers’ markets, specialty shop and nation-wide chain grocers. The only hard part will be choosing your favorite.

13. You like food in general. There’s down-home country cookin’ or fine dining within reach in just about every part of the state.

We have some of the best BBQ, biscuits and gravy, fried chicken and country ham you’ll ever have the pleasure of eating. Or try one of Virginia’s many fine dining restaurants. Our gourmet cuisine has hit the nation’s best restaurants lists more than once.

14. You don’t just like festivals. You love them.

Whether you’re looking for big city food and culture or small town celebrations, there’s a festival in just about every part of the state on any given weekend.

15. Cities or small towns – your choice.

If you want the fast track, big city life, you can have it. Northern Virginia is one of the nation’s top job growth areas and offers limitless options. But if you want a quieter speed, then take your pick of beautiful small towns where life is slower, but every bit as rich.

16. We have world-class healthcare.

Our hospitals are nationally ranked for care, including specialties like cardiology (Sentara Norfolk General) and neonatology (Inova Fairfax).

17. You like things that go fast. Both horses and cars.

Virginia horse country is not to be messed with. If you love horses, we have steeplechase, polo and countless horse shows and competitions. If NASCAR is your thing, we have the Martinsville Speedway, Richmond International Raceway and Bristol Motor Speedway. For Formula 1 and stock car racing, VIRginia International Raceway in Alton and the Virginia Motor Speedway in Jamaica, Virginia, fit the bill.

18. You support the troops.

Men and women in uniform are part of the fabric of Virginia. We were founded on a proud tradition of protecting our beliefs and today, Virginia has more than 20 military bases representing all 4 branches of the armed services, plus a strong National Guard presence.

19. Music makes you happy.

Bristol, Virginia is called the birthplace of country music for a reason. This is where some of the first commercial recordings were made with artists like Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family.
