Comstock Homebuilding Companies, Inc. Issues Guidance for Q4 2005

The Company also reported that its board of directors has authorized a one million share buyback program to be administered by management. No shares have been redeemed to date under this authorization.

In addition, the Company reported that it has begun planning an expansion in certain markets outside its core market of Washington DC.

"We have accomplished a great deal in our first year as a public company," said Christopher Clemente, Chairman and CEO. "Our achievements in 2005 will surpass our initial expectations for the year and position Comstock for tremendous additional growth in 2006 and beyond. Our backlog of sales remains very strong and will provide a solid foundation for organic growth during 2006 and 2007 in our core markets, while our access to capital will enable Comstock to generate additional growth through expansion into other strong housing markets. We have several initiatives in process and will be outlining our expansion plans further in the first quarter. We will stay true to our strategy of providing a diverse selection of affordably priced products in all of our operations because we believe it minimizes the impact of shifting market conditions."
