Colonial Heights , USA – July 25th, 2014 /PressCable/ — Weichert Realtors Brockwell & Portwood are pleased with a recently released study from the U.S. National Bureau of Economic Research showing that Richmond-Petersburg VA is the #1 happiest metropolitan city with a population greater than 1 million people.
Coming in at a close 2nd was Norfolk – Virginia Beach – Newport News VA with Charlottesville VA coming in as the happiest American Region.
“Brockwell stated that this was not a surprise to him or his partner Deirdre Portwood. Having both been raised in the local area, Central Virginia is filled with ultra urban areas, great suburbs, fine dining and popping nightlife. It’s also full of great people and great food smothered in Southern Hospitality.”
“Portwood stated that People’s first priority should be that they be happy with where they live. If you decide to live in a high stress environment, everything around you will affect you on multiple levels. The laid back southern lifestyle is something that really should be considered when deciding where you want to lay down family roots and the quality of life that you would like to live.”
“Brockwell also stated that with the economy slowly starting to recover, they are seeing an increase in people who are looking to purchase properties in Richmond VA. There are an abundance of great homes at great prices that are currently available and when compared to what you would pay in other states, you definitely get more bang for your buck here in Virginia.”
They hope that people will read the study and give Richmond and all of Virginia serious thought when faced with the decision to move to a new city or state.
Both Brockwell & Portwood invite you to check out Richmond VA Real Estate to find your happy home in Virginia.
