You can’t raffle off your own house – that’s illegal. But for $100, you might win one – a $475,000 Deep Creek beauty being raffled to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (charity = legal).

Odds of snagging the keys are 1 in 13,000 (number of tickets being offered) – which is better than the lottery (recent Powerball: 1 in 175 million).

Win the house, though, and you’ll have to come up with a lot more cash before you move in. Taxes are due up front, about $100,000 worth (the fly in the ointment).

On the upside, plenty of banks will be eager to help you out, since 3308 Dodd Dr. in Chesapeake’s Culpepper Landing will make fine collateral.

The 3,100-square-foot house – three bedrooms, media room, screened-in porch, top-shelf appliances and a to-die-for master bath – is one of 30 being raffled across the country for the annual St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway, the hospital’s biggest fundraiser.

Builders in Hampton Roads have been participating for 15 years. This year’s house is the sixth built by Stephen Alexander Homes & Neighborhoods.

Stephen Quick, who owns the company with his two sons, says his outfit has funneled $6 million to St. Jude over the years. Dozens of local and national contractors donate materials or labor, while Quick and his folks work for free.

The result: A home built for about 40 percent of its usual cost, which is covered by raffle proceeds.

Tickets usually sell out; St. Jude gets the rest.

Market Projections for 2014. What do the “experts” think?

Friday, November 8th, 2013

Made in America HouseThe Chief Economist at the national research division of Hanley Wood , Jonathan Smoke, has peered into his glass ball for 2014, run his magical algorithms and determined the outlook for residential new construction for the Top 100 markets for 2014. His ratings are based on the overall economic health of each market and expected growth in new home sales next year. How did the Norfolk-Virginia Beach-Peninsula SMA rate? He gave our region a score of 78.4 (on a 100 point scale). Now, that’s a bit hard to decipher until you put it into context. The top local market was deemed to be The Villages, Florida (I can only assume that is the name of the actual city or metro market) with a score of 95.0. The bottom market was, somewhat understandably, Detroit, MI with a score of 32.8. And our neighbor to the north, Washington, DC, inside the beltway where most of the money seems to be flowing these days, attained a score of 86.2.  I would say this puts Hampton Roads into the category of “slow but reasonably steady” growth, which may be tempered based on how things like sequestration and defense cuts ultimately play out. So…how do you feel about the prospects for our region next year when it comes to housing?
