Virginia Land for Sale

Virginia is often referred to as the "Birthplace of a Nation," a nickname it earned because it was not only the location of Jamestown, Great Britain's first surviving colony in North America, but also Roanoke, which was Great Britain's first North American colony which mysteriously disappeared. Since those early days, Virginia has found itself at the heart of many historically significant moments.

Virginia is a popular place. More than 8 million people call the state home, making it the 12th most populated state in the nation and the 13th most densely populated. Cities with the highest population are:

  • Virginia Beach, VA
  • Norfolk, VA
  • Chesapeake, VA
  • Richmond, VA
  • Newport News, VA
  • Alexandria, VA
  • Roanoke, VA

The reasons people love living in Virginia include:

Virginia is home to approximately 200 different firms who specialize in various aspects of aerospace. Virginia's aerospace program employs about 30,000 people and is tasked with fulfilling multiple government contracts.
