Updates and Repeats

Woodstock, Virginia

I've shown my investment townhouse before. Usually I'm trying to rent it out, and I always found good tenants. Now I'm trying to sell it. The market has been strong but it gets quieter in the winter, so I may have lost the optimal period for selling while I was busy figuring out where I wanted to move.  Life is complicated. 

The house is on Hisey Avenue. the view from upstairs is of Fort Valley Nursery with the Massanutten Range in the distance. It has two huge bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, and is listed at $229,900. The location is fantastic! 


Meanwhile, Covid continues to rage. The Omicron variant is less deadly than Delta, but still it is filling the hospitals with seriously ill sufferers.  I blame the people who refuse to wear masks or even social distance or get vaccinated. This pandemic should be over by now! I have switched from cloth masks to more effective KN94's and KN95's and stopped eating in restaurants again.

Signs 2

Yesterday was warm enough that I got the car washed. I also drove down Lupton Road to the state park.

As you can see in the view of Edinburg Gap, much of the snow is gone, although it persists on the mountains. Another snow storm is predicted for Sunday.

I had an appointment in Winchester on Tuesday so I swung by the animal hospital to see their sign, which often says something clever. 


  1. Hello,
    I hope you find your happy place and sell your investment property. The view is pretty. Take care, enjoy your day! Have a happy weekend!

  2. ...and Trump told his people, "to slow down the testing" and it worked!

  3. Good luck with your real estate transactions.

  4. Thanks for showing us your property, and then some shots in nature.

  5. Beautiful captures all! Lovely property!

  6. Nice views today, especially the mountain. We are going to get the storm, too, about 8-12 inches expected for us. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

  7. Good luck with your house. There has been a lot of homes sold in my usually quiet neighborhood in the last 6 months. Prices are way up, and I guess people want to take advantage of that. Not sure where everyone is moving to.

  8. Lovely shots, especially the last. The vet sign made me laugh.

  9. Looks like a great home, fairly priced with incredible views.
    Yes covid is raging here. Turns out that unvaccinated people have first priority here on monoclonal antibody treatments as well.
