Some perspective on the Crozet market … if you are looking to purchase a resale home, best start targeting your micro market now.
From January 2016 to 25 September 2017

Schools matter; luckily, Crozet schools are pretty darn good, with great leaders in each.
Short story – it may look like a lot of houses sell every year, but when you start drilling down, determining your locational and life triangles, there may be fewer homes that come on the market in Crozet than you might think (or want/hope).
As the major fundraiser for the community-owned and operated Claudius Crozet Park, the Festival plays a vital role in the survival and growth of this Albemarle County gem.
Come be a part of it!
We are in need of volunteers for many areas of the Festival – from grounds maintenance to Exhibitor booth-sitting and more. Volunteers will receive Festival admission for the full day, and the satisfaction of playing an integral part in the ongoing success of this fantastic weekend celebration of art, craft, and community at Claudius Crozet Park.
Perhaps you are already aware, but two of our musicians’ cars were broken into last evening (Wed, Sept 20), while we were in rehearsal between the hours of 7-9 pm. The cars, which were parked in the gravel parking lot on the premises at Tabor Presbyterian Church, were vandalized and valuables stolen. Two police reports were filed individually by the victims.
I am writing to remind and emphasize to all members of our community the importance of not leaving valuables in your car while attending local events (or any events). Even though crime is low here, please don’t let that fact lull you into a false sense of security and complacency about taking common sense precautions to protect yourself from becoming an unfortunate crime statistic.
Stealing is bad. Stealing from a church parking lot? Special place in hell for those folks.
