imageI love “Pieces of Home.” If for no other reason, it’s such a popular publication we always see our Web stats shoot up when it’s available.

It’s popular because it’s so darned good — it’s not just a imagereview of the past year in Virginia housing, it’s also got perspective and commentary from experts across the state, including Governor Bob McDonnell, who penned a piece just for us.

So what’s it got this year? Let’s see…

  • Residential sales data
  • imageRegional snapshots
  • Comparisons of Virginia with the U.S.
  • Foreclosure data
  • Commercial roundup
  • Commentary from lenders, economists, the Federal Reserve, Housing Virginia, and more (including the governor, as noted)

And… well, lots more. Full color, of course, and chock full of charts and graphs that make it easy to understand what’s happening in the commonwealth’s housing markets — something worth showing clients, legislators, planners, and media.

You can read it online at, or download a copy today (pretty big PDF). Either way, be sure to read it … and enjoy!
