The American Dream was first born 400 yeas ago in the hearts of brave women and men who viewed the shores of what is now Virginia from the decks of tiny ships, envisioning a better future for their children. Virginia Land for Sale is still an investment in a brave new world – with historic ties to a shared past.
From the Tidewater to the Shenandoah Valley, from the Potomac to Chesapeake Bay, from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Eastern Shore, from Chincotague Island to the Natural Bridge and the Dismal Swamp, Virginia’s bounty, beauty, and wonders are unrivaled. If eastern Virginia is the quintessence of the Mid-Atlantic States, then the valleys and mountains of the west are the definition of the Appalachian ethos. And the people who call Virginia home are as variegated as its landscape. Oystermen, tobacco farmers, coal miners, sailors and civil servants make the Old Dominion as diverse as any one single region in the world.
Northern Virginia with its ring of suburbs encircling much of Washington, DC is the most densely populated area in the Commonwealth, home to dozens of federal agencies from the Pentagon to the CIA. Northern Virginia is also a rich technology corridor with digital data and telecommunications enterprises as vaunted as those of the Silicon Valley’s. But Virginia’s largest metropolitan area is all about the beach: the adjoining cities of Norfolk and Virginia Beach, sun, surf, sand and the naval headquarters of the Atlantic fleet. Richmond’s government buildings were designed by Thomas Jefferson, a noted citizen architect and the country’s third president; the state capitol is also the home of Virginia Commonwealth University and a gracious, restored historic district. Charlottesville, 20 miles east of the famous Blue Ridge Mountains, is the home of the University of Virginia, which Jefferson also helped to design. Other historic Virginia cities include Williamsburg, Hampton Roads, Arlington, Petersburg, and Roanoke.
Much of Virginia is subtropical, with warm wet summers, and mild winters. In the Mid-Atlantic States, the advance of springtime northward is an annual rite. By early March, in southern Virginia, the first scents of the new season already sweeten the air, weeks ahead of spring’s arrival on the Potomac. In the summertime when the weather is warm and humid, the mountains provide a popular break from the heat of the Tidewater. The Eastern Shore, jutting out into the Atlantic, is also a popular get away.
Virginia’s favorable corporate and personal tax rates, an educated workforce, right to work rules, and generally pro-growth regulatory stances have helped make Virginia a favorite with businesses. In 2009 Forbes Magazine named Virginia America’s “Best State for Business” for the fourth year in a row, noting, “Virginia is booming.” Part of the Commonwealth’s relative prosperity is due to strategic advantages conferred by geography and proximity: Virginia’s synergistic relationships with federal agencies in the northern part of the state, and naval and military installations along its coasts, provide its residents with relatively secure jobs, and thus its coffers with a relatively secure tax revenue stream. Other important industries include agriculture, coal mining, tourism, telecom and technology. Computer chips are the Commonwealth’s most valuable export. Economic expansion within the Northern Virginia tech corridor is likely to continue and with it, construction and associated enterprise.
Virginia’s agricultural base, the strength of its coal energy reserves and its relationship with the federal government will continue to buoy the state into the next decade. Virginia Land for Sale is a hedge against the boom and bust cycles that have plagued so many other real estate markets in the United States over the past two years.
