A follow up!!!

To transfer car titles or leave alone.

So we have 2 cars, a 2009 versa I bought from the neighbor last November for $1,400, and a 2009 Toyota Corolla we bought new.

We will keep our home in PA, giving it to our daughter, and will of course be back and forth. I don't know how you would define residency in this case.

So the question is do we leave the cars with PA plates and titles or do we transfer them.

In PA we pay about $90 for plates per year and about $700 for insurance for both cars. Both homes and the cars are with same insurance co.

Any suggestions welcome!!!

Where are they parked? Where did you tell your insurance they're parked at night?

ETA: what's your drivers license say?

We still have our home in PA. So right now one car is in PA and the other is here,
Our licenses still in PA because we will still be going back and forth.
Of course our insurance agent knows as everything we have is thorough them.
Thanks for the reply.

I retired here, grew up in San Francisco, was in military, lived in Europe, came back here. Border of Newport News and Williamsburg. Love being close to the water, reminds me of the Bay Area. Way cheaper than California for many things. Plenty to do, has all the essentials and then some. Can be quirky traffic, the tunnels, unpredictable weather. But I donít have to work, and live right at my comfort level and then some.

Any advice for someone looking to move to the same area of VA?

I currently live in NE PA and I can't take the winters. Also going through a divorce so I'm alone taking care of too much property by myself, and it's not cheap paying for help. Snow removal costs me $75 a pop, it cost me $225 in one week. I have a driveway that's over 200 feet long in case you're wondering why so expensive.

I have a daughter in Arlington, VA but I don't want to live close to DC. My best friend lives on the MD shore. So moving to the Virginia shore area makes visiting both of them easier.

Should I rent somewhere before jumping into purchasing? I notice most of the homes for sale in the Williamsburg area are in homeowner associations and I don't want rules and regulations over and above county/state rules and regulations. I just want my own home in a safe, quiet suburb where I can have a fenced in yard for my dogs, shopping not too far away, local activites and clubs, and maybe find a good man to start a new life with.

I always advise clients and customers to rent before buying if possible. This obviously gives you time to learn the area and decide where you might want to buy a home. If that option is not available, then I suggest folks make several trips to the area before committing to a home purchase. You will find several folks here that will be glad to give pros and cons to the cities that comprise our area. Depending on where you live in our area, you are 2.5-4 hours drive to either location you mention. Good luck with your decision, and again, this forum is usually a good source of information about this area or to answer specific questions.
