community spotlight: East Beach, Norfolk, Virginia

What $1 Million Will Get You In Norfolk

We don’t know about you, but for a good many of us there was a time when we were young that the premise of having ‘a million dollars’ meant that you would be beyond set for life and you could just spend, spend, spend to your heart’s content. As you get older, you come to realize that one million dollars wouldn’t have you acting like that at all - in fact, it turns out you might do little more than buy your dream home with cash.

Which, in itself is still pretty darn sweet..

It’s equally true that a million dollars won’t get you much at all if you’re buying nice homes in New York, L.A., or Miami. You can include Washington in that super-pricey real estate group too, but here in Virginia we just can’t say enough good things about Norfolk real

Norfolk Virginia is America's best city

When thinking about America’s best city, people from outside of Virginia likely wouldn’t be thinking about putting Norfolk up there against the likes of Chicago, New York, and San Francisco (to name only a few).
