Building a New Home Takes a Lot (Pun Intended)

For those who want to live in their dream home, finding where to build in the Northern Virginia area is the first hurdle. Between development and zoning, the available land may even feel impossible to locate. For some, it feels like they have been looking for months or even years without finding anything suitable, let alone ideal. This can lead to a feeling of being “in limbo” – waiting to find the perfect place before moving forward. That feeling can become a disappointing reality without rethinking the challenge. Here are some important questions to ask yourself.

Are you sure you want to do it?

Let’s start with some basic psychology. If you feel like you are stuck at an impasse, you may want to check within yourself to make sure that you truly want to take this journey. It’s a huge investment of time, money, and energy, and, while the process can be smoother by partnering with the right professionals, it takes patience and commitment to build a custom home. Instead of trying to figure out if it’s the right fit on your own, talk to the professionals. We can ask you the right questions and guide you towards the solution that fits your dream. If you are sure, but you feel paralyzed, you can break through this by partnering with the right team to help you move forward.

Do you know how to start?

At AV Architects + Builders, we find that some people feel they need to wait until they have found the lot on their own before working with us. They search on Redfin or Zillow, and they keep hitting a wall as the available lots are slim. They may even work with a real estate agent but find that there simply isn’t any empty land available in desirable locations like Arlington, Great Falls, or McLean. In actuality, we can help much sooner in the process than you’d think. We don’t simply design or build the home, we are also licensed realtors, and we use our vast and deep network of connections built over the course of three decades in the area to help locate off-market listings, tear-downs and other possibilities that won’t get found without knowing where to look.

Do you feel like you need to do it all in person?

Our clients know they can trust us with their vision, and the sooner we start working with them. The easier it will be. We understand that location and safety may be a concern, so we work virtually with people who are overseas, or who are concerned about their health. We spend hours talking to our clients about what they want, not just in the number of bedrooms, but also how the home will be used, who will be living there, and what aspects of indoor/outdoor living matter to them most. We don’t start renderings without a lot of clarity, which we get from really listening to the answers to our many questions.

With the New Year comes resolutions. If this is the year that you want to start the journey to Vacation Style Living™, don’t be like 80% of people who don’t follow through on their resolutions. Instead, schedule a consultation with a team that can help you find the lot, then design and build the home and garden of your dreams. Contact us today to get started.
