Real Estate Tips:
Diversify your portfolio as much as possible. You do not want to have all of your investment funds in only one type of investment. Spread them out over stocks, real estate, and other investments in order to protect yourself should something bad happen in one area of the investment market. Sometimes the best investment is your own venture. If you are not comfortable with the world of finance and big spenders, then invest in something like real estate that you can improve and resell. This is especially wise if you have skills that are needed to improve a property to increase it's resale value.

    Facts About Virginia
    • The state’s tree varieties include hickory, oak, maple, pine, and magnolia. Here, you can also see a dwarf pawpaw—a tree with fruit that tastes like a cross between a banana and a mango. Look for native flowers such as wild columbine, purple milkweed, wild geraniums, and coneflowers.
    • In 1963, Virginia Beach and the former Princess Anne county merged as the City of Virginia Beach.
    • In 1607, after a voyage of 144 days, three ships headed by Captain Christopher Newport, and carrying 105 men and boys, made their first landfall in the New World on the mainland, where the southern mouth of the Chesapeake Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean (where Virginia Beach today is). They named it Cape Henry, after Henry Frederick, Prince of Wales, the eldest son of King James I of England.
    • Since Virginia was the site of the first permanent English settlement, the state is known as “the birthplace of a nation.” As well as the “Mother of Presidents” Eight Virginia born gentlemen succeeded to the highest office in the land, including four of the first five presidents.
    • Today, Virginia Beach is a resort city with miles of beaches and hundreds of hotels, motels, and restaurants along its oceanfront.

    1. Natural bridge, The Appalachian Trail, Booker T Washington birthplace, White lightning museum, and on and on and on! There is so much to do here it's unbelievable that people don't know about this place. Floydfest and the Gofest. Wine tours galore. If you like the outdoors the Roanoke area is top notch. McAfee's Knob, Tinker Cliffs, and Dragons tooth. Bike the parkway tours. This is not a city for sitting around all day.

      I live near the lake in Moneta. Moving here was the best decision I ever made.

    2. Roanoke is a dream destination of mine. Another thing in Roanoke that's not on this list is the ElevaTOURS Elevator Museum. It is a museum that has tons of Elevator parts from around the world. And it is run by Andrew Reams known on YouTube as DieselDucy. He is an Elevator entusiast just like me and he lives right in Roanoke.

    3. Nice and creative Videos,I can see A lot of thought has been put into the content and editing of the video, This is really my favorite channel.:) .🌴🌴🌴excellent 👍👌👍👌👍 🌴🌴🌴 🌴🌴🌴 🌴🌴🌴 🌴🌴🌴 Suffolk Virginia 2,020

    4. If it was not for the scumbag people that live there, Roanoke would be a great place.
      Don't move there if you have a Northern accent.
      The asshole people that are from there really suck, big time!

    5. We are planning to visit Roanoke in October, we fly from orlando fl
