Written by the Steele Group Sotheby’s International Realty

If you’re looking for a new home, you could do a lot worse than moving to Virginia. Specifically, Henrico County homes have become extremely popular. There are so many different options to choose from. Henrico has some of the best new homes in Virginia and plenty of affordable ones too. There’s also the great educational system, urban creature comforts and all the wilderness you could ever want nearby as well.

However, no matter what you like about a potential new home, you definitely can’t move there if you won’t have a job once you arrive. Fortunately, Virginia isn’t lacking for job opportunities. In fact, it’s home to over 20 Fortune 500 companies.

One of these is Freddie Mac, which makes more than $80.6 billion. Most of you have probably already heard of Freddie Mac before. It’s equal parts government and corporation and focuses mainly on the real estate market.

Another great company here in Virginia is CarMax. At 259, the company pulls in $10.5 billion annually. For those who don’t know, CarMax helps people find new and used vehicles, compare them and do the necessary research so they can make the best choice. Advanced Auto Parts is another Fortune 500 company that deals with cars based out of Virginia too.

Being so close to DC, there are many companies here like General Dynamics that specialize in the aerospace industry and make billions of dollars.
