Any homeowner repainting for sale, should get the advice of a professional stager or a well rounded Realtor with experience in picking wall colors, the taste for color schemes has always changed over the years, has have the colors of kitchen cabs etc. But a generally good advice to sellers for the purpose of selling their property, that they need to bring in some attractive, en vogue colors, all white
feels like a hospital, too neutral is too boring...

So depending on floor colors hardwood or carpeting the wall colors should be coordinating, and
there should be some impressive colors if only one one wall here and there, a hallway wall, etc.

And we all understand neon colors are not what we are talking about.... So any Seller/ homeowner should really get good advice before starting to paint...

The colors in a home furnished or not, can make a huge difference.

That is a tough time of year to find a temporary rental. You may want to check Craigslist in hopes of finding someone looking for a temporary renter for a couple of months....perhaps someone looking for a "house sitter".
And depending on how much money you are willing to spend, you may want to call a company who handles furnished vacation rentals. It could be pricey. Good Luck!!

Sandbridge does not have a Homeowners Association which would prohibit an RV in this driveway. I have however heard of a citywide code saying that boats, trailers & RVs must be parked be parked behind the front profile of a house. Fortunately this property has ample room to the side & rear to accomodate most RVs. Please feel free to give me a call or text directly at 757-619-2247 for more info. ... more

Hi Steven,
You don't mention number of beds/bath and price range for agents to responds with any leads they may have.
When I help renters I find it is always helpful to include a photo when applying. The mixing of breeds in your puppy are not so bad with the Lab thrown in there, but landlords will be worried not knowing what size your puppy eventually will be (somewhat large) but also they know that puppies are notorious for needing time to "grow up."

You can also search our MLS (officially REIN - Real Estate Info Network) at the link I am attaching and here are instructions for searching for rentals that will consider pets:
Instructions for searching for rental homes:

At the home page, click on the map on the right of the screen, which says Interactive Map Search. Under Property Type, click the drop down list and select “Rental”. Set your minimum and maximum rental amounts as per your budget. Select the minimum number of bedrooms and bathrooms you are wanting. Under Rental Type select “Single Family” (or whatever types you are open to). Under Lease Type select “Year”. If you have Pets, select the box next to pets.

Good luck! KK German, Wainwright Real Estate kkgerman@gmail.com

Nick Calvert answered:
Thats a difficult question to answer but here goes. There are numerous houses in VB that have in-law suites of one degree or another. As far as turning homes into Official Apartments the property must have the zoning to support it and meet the guidelines set forth by the city. There are some to be found though most would be in pricier areas along the oceanfront or bay and would generally be zoned R5R however the guideline of conforming duplexes would dictate that the lot size be at least 10,000 square feet or be otherwise grandfathered.
I hope this answers your question.

KK German answered:
Hi Chickie,
It's challenging to find a rental that will take a larger pet. Luckily labs are known for being good pets in general.
More and more landlords are willing to take pets. I have found 313 two bedroom rentals in Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, and 151 will take pets (most will take pets upon approval).
I am attaching the site I host where you can search for rentals.
Instructions for searching for rental homes:
At the home page, click on the map on the right of the screen, which says Interactive Map Search. Under Property Type, click the drop down list and select “Rental”. Set your minimum and maximum rental amounts as per your budget. Select the minimum number of bedrooms and bathrooms you are wanting.

Ron Thomas answered:
There are many consideration here:

The Values in your neighborhood are going up, but so are the Values in your next neighborhood:
And, assuming that you will be moving UP; the price of your next house will increase more than your present house. (Maybe the same percentage, but more dollars.)

Assuming that Job relocation is not a factor; I would recommend moving now:
Decide on your Realtor and go for it.

Fred Ritchie answered:
Private party financing is a possibility. What price range would you consider for a purchase and how much cash is available for the down payment. What are your minimum requirements for the home you will be buying.
Were you on the deed and/or deed of trust of the home that was foreclosed on?
Thanks,
