You expect to have a large rotating population in a college town, with people moving in for four years and then many of them moving on. An ebb and flow of people that don’t want to invest in something permanent have created a demand for a large variety if rental units.

But it’s not just cash-strapped college kids renting in Blacksburg. Luxury lofts are also available for those who can afford the good life but don’t want the hassles of owning a home.

If you are dying to live downtown, Lofts at the Lyric are a great place to be. Located at the corner of College and Main, you’ll be right among the action of the city’s center. The loft apartments are within walking distance of dozens of restaurants, bars and retail locations. In fact, the farmers’ market is right outside your door. The living is amenity-rich and maintenance-free — no yard to mow, and you don’t even have to worry about parking.

But the best part is modern living in the midst of history. Lofts are located above the Lyric Center, the building surrounding the Lyric Theatre, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.

That is just one place among many spots to live. For instance, at Cascades Pointe Condominiums, the low-maintenance lifestyle and location are perfect for Virginia Tech students. Plus, residents can opt to purchase their units, complete with new appliances.

Of course, Blacksburg features an array of options for prospective homebuyers in its 24 distinct neighborhoods. The town even has a division of neighborhood services that promotes neighborhood preservation through citizen involvement.

Whether you are a student needing short-term accommodations or looking to invest in your future, Blacksburg has choices for every walk of life.
