I actually live 2 minutes from Butts Station and agree with you that it is a beautiful place to live. We are just a few minutes drive from great shopping, and if you are a "good" runner, you can pass the mall on your run. While both Butts Station and Pleasant Grove have good schools, most would argue that the Grassfield school district will have a higher "pull" than the Greenbrier schools. So when I think about what interests "me", with my kids no longer in school, I prefer the Greenbrier area because it is so central. Folks, that place a higher emphasis on schools, might lean towards the Grassfield area.

There are a lot of things that effect pricing, Both areas you mentioned have a fair amount of new construction going on, but I think that there is more expansion & building further out from the center of Chesapeake, which includes Pleasant Grove. New construction comes at a premium, and can push the values/prices of surrounding neighborhoods a bit. Butts station is in a zip code 23322 that has seen ~2.5% positive value movements. Pleasant Grove's zip code is 23320, and has only seen a ~2% positive movement.

If you would like I can set you up a market snapshot for both of these communities, so that you can see what sells, and for how much. It would come to you weekly. Just shoot me an e-mail to If you want to look around these communities, here is a link where you can search sub-divisions, or neighborhoods, or if you really want to drill in, you can do an advance search by schools, new construction, foreclosures . . .

Now that you have heard all the answers about estimated value, are you disappointed that this home has gone under contract??

There are more brick ranches in Western Branch and Suffolk. Is your goal to find a home like 3150 Mapleton Crescent? Or were you simply confused why notes made the house so over priced?

Call me today at 757 580-6546

I believe it's hard to say because it seems that all areas are going to be affected. The tunnels where the tolls are being placed are already backed up and when tolls are put in place alternative routes will be taken which will cause more traffic. ... more

Jeff Lurie answered:
Hi Jenin001,

I realize that you, like most buyers, are checking what I refer to as the "mass listing" websites every day for new listings. It is important to understand that some of these listings are syndicated from the actual MLS (which is used by real estate professionals) and some are uploaded by a third party. I, as with every other real estate agent, have direct access to the MLS and can forward new listings that meet your criteria on a daily basis via email. What does that mean for you? No more tireless searching for properties that are already under contract or have been off the market for months.

Take a moment to review my Trulia profile. If you feel that I may be a good fit to your needs, give me a try. If not, I thank you for taking the moment anyways and I wish you the best.

Both of the properties you inquired about are available at this time. The Chesapeake market is selling quickly so who knows how long that will be the case. If you would like to see these properties I can make arrangements for us to see them this afternoon. What better is there to do on a rainy day than house hunt? Let me know if you would like me to set appointments. You can call me at 409-0259 or email me at
I look forward to meeting and helping you.

You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Mark Edwards answered:

I'm sure you've seen the news reports about how we are at the lowest inventory of available homes in years. New construction activity is up, consumer confidence is up, and interest rates are at the lowest in our history. Prices have been adjusted and now is the perfect time to buy before you start seeing the new construction increase in pricing. Drywall, plumbing, and roof shingles are heading up this spring, and now's a great time to purchase a brand new home.

Please check out our list of available new homes in Eagle Harbor in the Carrollton area (15 minutes from I-664), New homes start in the $300's.

Thank, and good luck!
