The Home Swap Concept is Growing


Low inventory of homes has opened the door to creativity


Recent times have created a need for homes with a work or study space. Parents are now working from home sharing space with children learning from home.

Many families are finding they need more space inside and out in a time where inventory is low, this can be challenging. We also have a large number of older homeowners that would normally down size staying where they are. The Choose A Home Team is working hard to help both groups navigate the Real Estate Market we are currently in.


Solutions Available for Home Buyers and Sellers


Every home buyer or seller has a unique situation that needs first to be conveyed to our team. Once we have an understanding of your situation, we can start working out a solution for you.

Some tools we can work with are Rent Backs / Possession Agreements / Home Swaps and STR arrangements.

Contact either Don Maclary or Susan Kent we would love to discuss your needs and offer a plan to get you into a more suitable home. As always you can expect excellent service from The Choose A Home Team.

Working From Home – Beach Life

Have you found yourself working from home?

If you have you might start thinking about Beach Life and a new place to work from. Here in Virginia Beach Homes are selling at Rocket Speed. We have had many people from larger cities looking for short term rentals where they can work remotely and enjoy the beach at the same time. For some working from home might be for the near future only. However some have been looking for homes to buy because they have a work from home job already and there is nothing to do in some of the largest cities.

Beach Life has been thought of as a vacation and has always been a lifestyle.

2020 has brought the travel industry to it’s knees. The new plan for many is really decades old. This is creating sharp rise in people buying 2nd homes and vacation homes, even first time home owners. The new trend is personal entertainment spaces, home offices and dual use play / study areas.

Local to Coastal Virginia?

Take a few minutes and speak with one of us . The Choose A Home Team can find you a home that might be more suitable for your families peace of mind. As we are all finding ourselves spending time together in somewhat cramped spaces patients will sometimes run short. 

We hope everyone is doing well coping through 2020 with Covid-19 and the unrest in many major cities around the country. If you are not happy where you are talk to us about possibly relocating.

Maybe even our Luxury Market might be in your budget.

Virginia Beach – Safest City in 2020

The number one concern on everyone’s mind today is safety and security.

The issues with the COVID-19 virus, the spread, testing, treatment and vaccine have many people insecure about what is in store for the future.

The lock-downs, and restrictions associated with the mitigation of the spread of this disease has been difficult. Lock-downs have affected our mental health, as well as the economy, and personal finances. If this were not enough, recent events regarding Civil Rights, have also had people on edge regarding safety and security. But, there is some good news for the city of Virginia Beach.  According to SmithAdvisor, a study recently conducted showed that Virginia Beach is the safest city crime rate for large cities, in the US. They studied 3,383 cities, and ranked them buy size and crime rate. VA Beach is a large city (population over 100,00) and has the lowest crime rate of violent crime (1.3/1k), and property crimes (17.4/1k) for cities of this size. This equated to a total score of 35.8, the lowest of all the cities studied.

What does this mean for the residents and visitors to this area?

We can proudly say that Virginia Beach, VA is #1 in the country. We have the beaches, great schools and colleges, workforce, and access to other highly desirable amenities. This makes it a great place to live, work, vacation and play. Knowing that our city is a safe place makes all of the above even more desirable as a place to live or vacation.
