This property lists at 269,900. Is it worth this considering the roadway to be built next to it in 2013?

Asked by Wdg, Virginia Beach County, VA Thu Apr 2, 2009

Lynnhaven parkway is scheduled to go through in 2013 which butts up to property on corner. This property is also listed as a preserved area. Does that mean I can not do anything to the yard then?

Regarding if you will have to return a property landscape to a previous look: Before the POA documents are delivered to you, they do a drive by inspection and the homeowner will be asked to correct violations that the POA does not allow. If there are issues, they will deal with it more than likely-not you.

When my buyer has a question about a treed area like a preserve and wonders if there are future building plans for it, I recommend he call the city's zoning department. Just go to the phone book's blue pages, under Virginia Beach City Governmant and look at end under z --zoning. They are SUPER helpful. Give them the address and they can tell you about it.

Hello Diane,
Thank you for your response. I realize that there is a POA here, however , when looking at this property's plot and checking with the city, it does indeed have a large section marked as a "preserve" area which goes up to the house, as well as a large section of the back property canal marked as public access. I am trying to get an answer as to what exactly a marked, "preserve" area on the actual plot means and what would a potential buyer's responsibility be. The current owners have indeed added nice landscaping, decorative rock, etc. and have responded that they improved the land before they knew it was a preserved area. So this goes beyond a POA here. I also wonder if a future buyer could be made to return the property back to it's natural state if a neighbor or someone else complained.

If a major highway is scheduled for build out (if it ever happens), I would seriously consider other properties. Homes on major thoroughfares often are hard to sell at a later date. Just my opinion. Location, location, location.

We do not have a crystal ball as to sound barrier, construction effects on sound. You will have determine if the convenience of access for you is a good thing. Does traffic noise bother you? Would a tv/radio override minor noise? You are the only judge of that call. It is not a preserved area. It is a property owners association. You can run by individualization of your property first by an architectural committee. Most reasonable changes are find-but they want to know first. So if you plan to put in trees/shrubs make sure it does not detract from the integrity of the site/ area look.

If I can help you look further please contact me!
