The History of Powhatan County, VA, along with current market trends
I was promising a couple last night at a listing appointment in Powhatan County, Virginia that I'd chronicle a bit about their area in my blog and so here we go.
This photo to the left is of a Courthouse in Powhatan and is typical of the history that abounds in this area, named for Chief Powhatan of the Monacan Indians who met with English settlers in the 1608/1609 timeframe. See the link below for more history on Powhatan County:
The area as it is today, its an excellent blend of rural America with the comforts of suburban Southern style. The average home currently for sale in Powhatan (271 total homes available) is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2650 sf home for $396,254 at $151.37/sf and has been on the market for 124 days. Contrast that with the average sale statistics from the last 6 months which are 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2094 square feet at $259,044 with $124.97/sf and 92 DOM (days on market).
