Real Estate Expert Suggests Buying Real Estate in Newport News over Richmond

August 23, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ -

Richmond is one of the oldest major cities in the country. The capital city of Virginia has been a top preference in the state of Virginia for real estate investors over the decades. This is now under review as more people are choosing Newport News over Richmond. Evan Roberts, the founder of Dependable Homebuyers, explains that there are several reasons for such a shift in preference. Newport News is favored by investors for the appreciating home prices while the inventory is routinely replenished with pre-owned and new houses for sale. There is a fine balance between supply and demand. Both buyers and sellers have benefited from a steadily growing real estate sector in the independent city. Richmond has witnessed modest growth and most parts of the city have little scope for any major development.

Roberts says that for old cities like Richmond to undergo a major transformation, gentrification is one of the viable options but it has its pitfalls. There are plenty of historically significant sites and many old properties are deemed an integral part of the architectural heritage of the city. Gentrification is only limited to those areas that do not boast of such architectural heritage and have enough room for contemporary transformation. The lack of scope of development in most parts of the city to make it more conducive for the day has encouraged investors to look elsewhere in the state of Virginia. Here's a recent press release they published.

Richmond is not a very affordable city to live in. Those who have properties already and are financially sound may not have to worry about the steep home prices. They are also relatively immune to increasing household debt to income ratio, since their mortgages are completely repaid. First time home buyers are having a tough time. They are unable to find the right types of houses for their needs. The increase in rates of interest by the fed has made it more challenging for borrowers to work on their affordability. There is also a problem of very few developments of new homes. The limited new home construction is creating a gap between demand and supply, thus raising the home prices further and making ownership nearly unaffordable for many, especially young first time buyers.

Dependable Homebuyers deals in residential real estate in Newport News. The We Buy Houses company assists sellers and buyers. Roberts says that the growing population in the city along with the sufficient development of new neighborhoods in and around Newport News has provided the impetus to the housing sector. There is no shortage of houses for sale. The prices are reasonable. New homes are being constructed and buyers have sufficient options to choose the type of house they want. There are new houses and old or pre-owned homes that have been renovated to be suitable for a modern lifestyle. The cost of living in Newport News is also much less than that in Richmond. Buyers as well as investors will find Newport News to be a much more economical, yet financially rewarding real estate market.

Indonesian province shuts schools due to forest fire haze

Sep 22, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Authorities shut most schools in parts of Indonesia's Sumatra island to protect children from a thick, noxious haze as deliberately set fires burned through peatland forests, officials said Wednesday. Indonesia's Disaster Mitigation Agency said more than 3,600 fires have been detected on Sumatra and Borneo islands by weather satellites, leading to very poor air quality in six provinces with a combined population of more than 23 million. Nearly every year, Indonesian forest fires spread health-damaging haze across the country and into neighboring Malaysia and Singapore. Authorities have deployed more than 9,000 people to fight the fires, which...

Japan briefs diplomats on Fukushima nuclear water concerns

Sep 22, 2019

TOKYO — Japan tried to reassure foreign diplomats Wednesday about safety at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant amid concerns about massive amounts of treated but radioactive water stored in tanks. Diplomats from 22 countries and regions attended a briefing at the Foreign Ministry, where Japanese officials stressed the importance of combating rumors about safety at the plant, which was decimated by a 2011 earthquake and tsunami, while pledging transparency. The plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co., or TEPCO, said last month that it would run out of storage space for the water in 2022, prompting South Korea to raise safety...

Japan urges nuke plants to prepare for decommissioning era

Sep 22, 2019

TOKYO — Japan's nuclear policy-setting body adopted a report Monday saying the country is entering an era of massive nuclear plant decommissioning, urging plant operators to plan ahead to lower safety risks and costs requiring decades and billions of dollars. Twenty-four commercial reactors — or 40% of Japan's total — are designated for or are being decommissioned. Among them are four reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant that were severely damaged by the massive 2011 earthquake and tsunami that struck northeastern Japan. The annual nuclear white paper, adopted by the Japan Atomic Energy Commission, urges utilities to learn from U.S....

Japan's move to lower South Korea trade status takes effect

Sep 22, 2019

TOKYO — Japan's downgrading of South Korea's trade status has taken effect, a decision that already set off reaction and hurt bilateral relations. As of 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, Japanese manufacturers must apply for approval for each technology-related contract for South Korean export, such as fluorinated polyimides used for displays. South Korea's previous status as a preferential trade partner meant simpler checks on exports. Since Japan announced the decision, South Korea decided to similarly downgrade Tokyo's trade status, which will take effect next month. Seoul has also canceled a deal to share military intelligence with Japan. South Korea has accused Japan...

Indonesia to move capital from sinking Jakarta to Borneo

Sep 22, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia's president says the country's capital will move from overcrowded, sinking and polluted Jakarta to a site in sparsely populated East Kalimantan province on Borneo island, known for rainforests and orangutans. President Joko Widodo said Monday intense studies over the past three years had resulted in the choice of the location on the eastern side of Borneo island. The new capital city, which has not yet been named, will be in the middle of the vast archipelago nation and already has relatively complete infrastructure because it is near the cities of Balikpapan and Samarinda, Widodo said. He...
