Niche Locations, Cities and Towns in Virginia for Creating Your Custom Real Estate

This is a services area list of towns in the Commonwealth of Virginia in the United States which are readily served by RodwellBuildingServices. An incorporated town in Virginia is the equivalent of a city in most other states, i.e. a municipality which is part of a county. Incorporated cities in Virginia are independent jurisdictions and separate from any county. As of 2016, there are 190 incorporated towns, some of which are more populous than many independent cities, but are not incorporated as cities and are therefore situated within a parent county or counties.

New towns may be incorporated but must have a minimum population of 1,000 residents. Cities with populations of less than 50,000 are eligible to become towns through reversion. For a complete list of independent cities, see List of cities in Virginia. For major unincorporated population centers, see List of unincorporated communities in Virginia.

Please study Northern Virginia deliberately! Especially when the subject is School-Districts. These limited listing will be updated more frequently that the other jurisdictions in our services areas.
