Comstock and Bank of America Settle Dispute and Reach Agreement on Loan Modifications

RESTON, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 29, 2006 -- Comstock Homebuilding Companies, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHCI) and its subsidiaries (collectively "Comstock" or the "Company") today announced that it had settled the previously reported dispute with Bank of America (the "Bank") related to the purported notice of default issued by Bank of America on October 18th, 2006. While the specific terms of the settlement were not disclosed, the Company reported that it had made a five million dollar principal curtailment on its unsecured line of credit with Bank of America and entered into loan modification agreements with respect to all remaining outstanding Bank of America loans to the Company whereby the maturity dates and curtailment requirements have been extended. As part of the settlement, the Bank withdrew the previously issued notice of default and declared the Company to be in compliance with all obligations associated with the Company's borrowings with the Bank.

"We are pleased to have resolved this dispute in an amicable fashion," said Christopher Clemente, Comstock's Chairman and CEO. "We believe the modified terms of our Bank of America loans are better aligned with current real estate market conditions."
