How did you find your home?

Sonia Chapman: "A newspaper classified ad. It's hard to find affordable housing in Charlottesville."

Alan Firth: "Through the MLS system. I bought one home in 1996 in the Belmont area, and it has more than quadrupled in value since then. The other home I bought in Greene County in 1998, and it has more than tripled in value."

Kate Morris: "I'm still looking for it. I have my agent, but basically I'm just trying to find something I can afford to buy as a single working mom. Now I am looking for a house in Fluvanna."
