Are foreclosures a growing problem in Harrisonburg?

Several people have recently asked if I started this web site because of the growing problem with foreclosures in the Harrisonburg area.  In fact, that is not the case — foreclosures in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County continue to take place at a very slow rate – much slower than the other parts of Virginia and the country as a whole.  This is terrific, as foreclosure is typically not an option that a homeowner hopes to end up with when they buy a home.

So — why did I create

  • I author another blog, all about the Harrisonburg and Rockingham County real estate market — at  I realized that much of that reading audience didn’t necessarily have an interest in foreclosure properties.  Thus, by creating, I was able to segment out that content.
  • I hope to educate homeowners and the general public about the foreclosure process in Virginia.  If you have questions about it, feel free to e-mail me ( or leave it in the comment section below.
  • I work with many real estate investors who are looking for good buying opportunities, and while foreclosures sometimes provide a great opportunity, it is often difficult to find good information about them.  On, I will be sorting through all of the foreclosure properties that I am aware of, and presenting those with the best possibilities.

As an aside — if you are facing the possibility of foreclosure yourself, feel free to call (540-578-0102) or e-mail ( me.  I’d be glad to answer any questions that you may have to the best of my ability.
