Salem Named Virginia's Best City to Live In

When it comes to living in Virginia, people have lots of choices: the mountains or the beach, urban or rural, big city or small town. If you are looking for the best place to live in Virginia, look no further than Salem, Virginia.

Salem was recently named the Best City to Live in Virginia by The rankings were based on data from five key areas: violent crime, commuting, income, college education and restaurants per capita. Salem was also noted for its strong athletic presence, its spectacular views and proximity to attractions such as Dixie Caverns, Natural Bridge and Smith Mountain Lake.

Christiansburg took the number two spot -- and Martinsville ranked 10th on the list.

Advertising Alert: Rental Scams Continue

Online rental housing scams persist in the Roanoke Valley. RVAR was notified just last week of three rental scams -- involving postings on craigslist, Postlets and Oodle Marketplace. NOTE: These are legitimate websites which facilitate many legitimate transactions.

Criminals search legitimate websites that list homes for sale. They take the photos and information in those ads and post it, with their own email address, in an online ad as an available rental. The supposed rental is often listed with a below market rate. Potential renters may be asked to send a deposit out of state and/or fill out credit applications asking for personal information like credit history and social security numbers. Criminals can use this information to commit identity fraud and/or steal money from their victims.
