At the Corner of Convenience and Comfort

Author: Dragas Team


What can be better than spacious Dragas communities, top-rated amenities, and an unbeatable home value? An easy commute! Jessica Lautz, an economist at the National Association of Realtors offered her insight on what home buyers want:
"Seventy-three percent of recent homebuyers said that commuting costs were an important factor when deciding whether or not to purchase."
The chief economist of the NAR, Lawrence Yun, detailed  the positive effects of homes being in close proximity to eateries, shops and major employers:
“To accommodate that desire for an easy commute and draw more skilled professionals to a community, real estate developers need to follow up on long-known desires to have shops, restaurants and transit within easy walking distance.”
"Skilled workers move where they can find work, creating more traffic and driving up housing prices. It creates a positive feedback loop; the more skilled workers employed in an area, the more others want to move there."
King’s Pointe  at Western Branch and Spence Crossing at Princess Anne offer both convenience and comfort! Our condominium community King's Pointe at Western Branch is one exit away from a major highway leading to Norfolk and the Peninsula. Right around the corner from the quiet community is Chesapeake Square Mall, outfitted with shopping dining and entertainment. Spence Crossing, located in the heart of Virginia Beach, is minutes away from major employers, attractions and the Oceanfront.
