Welcome to Southern Virginia Properties real estate news and tips page.  We want to provide you with useful information about Southern Virginia lifestyle, home buying and selling tips and home maintenance and improvement ideas. Let us know how you like our content.

MESSAGE ABOUT COVID-19: We at Southern Virginia Properties are doing everything we can to assure that our clients, both Sellers and Buyers, are safe during this unfortunate pandemic.  Here are a few of the ways we have altered the way we conduct business:

Most importantly despite the State by State COVID-19 stay at home orders, Real Estate Brokerage is considered an essential business.   Therefore, we are working, servicing our clients.

1) We do most of our communications via phone, text, email and via our website contact management capabilities

2) We are providing video tours of most of our listings

3) We are offering Buyers a chance to tour a property via Live Video Chat either through Facebook, Google Chat, or any other means that are compatible 

4) We are conducting Live Video Open Houses with a Live Watch Party on Facebook

5) If onsite showings occur, we ask that both Sellers and Buyers sign a waiver indemnifying us all from harm due to showing during the COVID-19 stay at home orders.

6) We are using all the guidelines for precaution such as wearing masks and gloves and keeping a 6ft distance as we meet clients

7) We are providing the option for digital signatures on all agreements and contracts

Please feel free to contact us at (276) 666-HOME or send us a request through our Contact Us button on the top navigation bar of our website.  

We are always ready to help you with your NEXT MOVE!

Thank you,

Elle Wilk, Broker
