Home sales during January 2012 showed a marked improvement over last January (+2.7%) and January 2010 (+6.1%).  This market improvement, is an early indicator that Virginia’s housing market may continue to gather strength during 2012.  Low mortgage interest rates (3.98%) and relatively low unemployment levels (6.2%) are certainly helping housing markets around the Commonwealth to remain stable and show some regional improvements.
