Grayson County

Population and Jobs

Don’t be quick to overlook the unassuming yet beautiful Grayson County. There is more to this incredible area than meets the eye, and you won’t want to miss out on everything it has to offer! Median property value, household income, and employment have all been on the rise since 2017. Manufacturing, health care, and retail are the primary employers in this region, and close proximity to other counties mean you aren’t far away from plenty of other options. 

 

Amenities 

The best parts of this area can be found in the natural beauty and sweeping mountains. The Grayson Highlands State Park is located here, and provides ample opportunities for hiking, camping, photography, and more. Grayson also houses the two highest points in Virginia, providing some impressive hiking goals to conquer. The area is home to quaint small towns, and is great for those who like a slow, quiet way of life. However, this atmosphere doesn’t mean you won’t have access to some great restaurants, local shopping, and more. The City of Galax, adjacent to the county, has a robust downtown and lots of local events. 

 

Real Estate

The real estate options are plentiful and diverse. Whether you are looking for sprawling, scenic land to build your forever home or retirement property, or you are just in the market to buy your first home, Grayson has an option that’s right for you. The desirable yet affordable property values mean you can find something you love in your price range.
