    was named after Queen Henrietta Maria and was founded in 1632. It became the first English colony to have dominant Catholic members, and it is home to one of the first religious laws in America.

  • What is now known as the United States of America began its formation between the 17th and the 18th century. Thirteen colonies were originally part of it, and they are also known as the original states of America. The very first Colony was Virginia (originally Jamestown), was founded in 1607 and the last of the 13 colonies to form was Georgia. Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Georgia, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts Bay, South Carolina, New Hampshire, Maryland, New York, Rhode Island and Providence, and North Carolina are the thirteen colonies which united in order to be free from foreign rule.

    and Providence were the smallest colony of England in America, and was founded in 1636. It was the first colony of England that declared independence and separation from the English rule.

    From report below you can see that home prices for sold homes in the First Colony area ranged from $225k to $415k  Home prices for currently listed homes ranged from $209k to $1 million plus. Waterfront homes on the James River tend to sell in the $900k + price range and can skew the prices drastically.

    • Homes for sale: 10
    • Home sold: 13 last 12 months ( up from 10 same period in 2009)
    • Average sold price: $346,131 ( down slightly from $351k a year ago)
    • Average days on market: 137 ( about the same as last year @ 139 DOM)
      Price per square foot for sold homes: $151

    A six month supply is considered a balanced and healthy market. At the present rate of sales First Colony  has just over an eight month supply. That is bullish for rising prices. And with interest rates at or below 40 year lows, there is still room for this rally to run. Homes in this community vary widely in  price. So an analysis compared to previous years is not always accurate.
