More homes sold in Virginia between April and June of this year than the same time period in 2010 when there were significant tax incentives in place for home buyers.

The Virginia Association of Realtors reports 29,499 single family homes, townhomes, and condos sold during that time period in 2013.

Every region in the Commonwealth saw a good second quarter of this year. The Roanoke/Lynchburg region saw very high sales after a slower first quarter.

A home is staying on the market for an average of 71 days right now.  That's the best pace since 2006.
