Congratulations to YMCA of Central Virginia and Lynchburg Humane Society! They placed #6 and #22 in Lynchburg Living's Giving Back Awards!

Just two of Beacon's many charity partners, we're excited that Lynchburgers voted for these two organizations to receive a Giving Back Award from Lynchburg Living magazine.

Events and donations that Beacon has made to the YMCA include support of the Storming of Thunder Ridge bicycle event and contributions towards the Summer Learning Loss Prevention Program. For the Lynchburg Humane Society, Beacon raised $3,000 with an in branch promotion and helped them promote several of their events through Living in the Heart of Virginia spring of 2018.

We look forward to working with YMCA of Central Virginia and Lynchburg Humane Society more in the future, along with all of our other charity organization.

You've found the perfect house, but what about the neighborhood? Sometimes a good or bad neighborhood can make all the difference in how much you grow to love your new home.

1. Talk to neighbors to find out what they like and don't like about the area.

2. Think about your drive to work. If it's pretty far, maybe practice the route to see if you're okay with the distance.

3. How close are you to family?

4. Consider how close you want to be to stores or restaurants.

5. Look around to see if people are outside, sitting on porches, walking dogs. Does it seem like a safe area?

6. Check local crime statistics on police department websites.

7. Research the school systems.

8. Look into home values throughout your neighborhood to see if they're about equal.Do these homes hold value over time?

9. Are city services available? Is trash pick up an option and are streets and sidewalks well maintained?

10. Is growth is apparent? Are new businesses or new homes are being built?
