OK, so I am a little bias having been born and raised in Virginia, however it is pretty impressive that in this countrywide assessment of small towns in America Virginia appears 3 times in the top 10 and two other Shenandoah Valley towns Strasburg and Woodstock were mentioned.
A big hats off to Bridgewater for making the top 3!
My only bone to pick is when you click on the “Bridgewater” link at the top of the page it takes you to horrific statistics regarding real estate. YIKES, unless you can afford a million home you better race to Bridgewater because there is only one other home to choose from!
If you look at the logo to the left of those two lonely listings it is being pulled from MRIS a regional MLS system which very few local Realtors are members of and NOT a comprehensive picture of the real estate market in Bridgewater. So you can see what caused my chuckle when next glancing at the MOTOVO tagline “Real Estate Made Easy.”
Here is the real comprehensive list of homes for sale in Bridgewater, VA
Obvious Tip of the Day: If you are in the market to sell or purchase a home my advice would strongly be to work with a local REALTOR and don’t rely MOVOTO’s data.
Here is what they had to say about Bridgewater: “If you’re looking for serious quality, without a high price tag, Bridgewater is definitely your best bet. For starters, it had the lowest cost of living in our top 10, but still had the fifth-lowest crime rate, the 11th-shortest commute, and the 25th-lowest taxes. That’s a lot of bang for your buck. While it had fewer amenities than others in our top 10, it’s still all about quality, featuring such places as Francesco’s, which is cozy but has to-die-for Italian food. If you’re worried about affording all the delicious food, don’t be too concerned. The unemployment here was at merely 3.7 percent, so you’re unlikely to be out of a job in these parts. Not bad for a town of just more than 5,000 people, right?”
