Will a Move to Newport News Benefit Your Business?
If you’re looking for a mid-Atlantic location that offers more exposure for your business plus the kind of family environment you want, Newport News might just be the answer.
For starters, you have access to a major metropolitan hub without having to deal with big-city expense or big-city crowds. You’ll find many international businesses here, including Canon Virginia, Inc., Ferguson Enterprises/Wolsley North America, Continental Automotive Group and High Liner Foods. Companies like these have found that there is a well-qualified labor pool and well-maintained infrastructure plus ease of shipping and global outreach by way of a major port, three international airports and an active railroad freight system. Whether your expertise is in technology, healthcare, manufacturing, hospitality, finance or education, or you’re breaking ground in an innovative new industry, you’ll find the business support you need in southeastern Virginia.
Easterners will find that the cost of living in Newport News is about 50 percent lower than it is in New York City, and that our energy costs and business taxes are quite reasonable compared to what you may be used to. Add to that a temperate climate; beautiful shoreline views; great restaurants, shopping and entertainment options; and plenty of family-friendly activities to enjoy, and you may be thinking it’s time to give serious thought to moving your business and your family to our fair city.
And by the way, you will be impressed with the Newport News housing market. No matter what kind of home you’re looking for, no matter what kind of neighborhood you have in mind, no matter what your price range is, it’s all here.
I grew up in this area. I’ve been a REALTOR® here for years. I guess that is a good indicator of how much I love living and doing business in Newport News. I think you will too.
