We are only pursuing new leads in N Arlington, McLean, and Falls Church at this time.

No! If you don’t have one, we can help you find one. We often get off market leads and pair them up with our clients. We also have an in-house Realtor who can send listings.   Let us know you are interested.

The construction cost of the homes we build range depending on the size and style of the home and lot specifics. We would need to gather more information from you first before providing an accurate working budget for you and your home. To note, we can build the same size home for a range of a couple hundred thousand dollars pretty easily by adjusting how we are building it. On average our clients typically spend ‘all-in’ between $225 – $275 per finished sq. ft. on construction cost. The bigger you build, the lower the price per sq. ft. because of economies of scale. That can of course be offset with adding some fun bells and whistles to your new home!

The average amount of time is 12-14 months from signing a contract to being handed the keys! 2 months creating building plans, 3-4 months permit approvals, 7-8 months construction. See more details here.

Yes, we are a design/build company and we have a talented architectural designer on our team who can design a new custom home to suit your needs or you can choose from dozens of established plans.

 We use the construction management software system ‘Co-Construct’. All clients get log in access where you can view your project 24/7. All scope, budget, selections, plans, schedule, and communication happens within here. We are fully transparent and all actual build costs flow right in from Quickbooks to minimize any surprises and keep you up to date on your budget.

Yes, we do buy lots directly and pay competitive prices! You can avoid Realtor Fees, sell your house ‘as-is’, avoid contingencies, choose your own closing date, and leave any unwanted belongings in the home when you leave.  Tell us about your property.

Yes! We have an in-house Realtor who is on a team with Washington Fine Properties. We can sell either your old home you’re moving out of, OR your new home should you need to sell, in addition to representing you on a purchase of a new lot if needed. We have successfully bought and sold for numerous clients over the years.

Yes, we are advocates of renewable energy and have installed solar on numerous homes. You can either design a new home and roofline to maximize the number of panels OR just send your home design upon completion to the solar company to see what fits. Either way we rough in an electrical conduit as a standard to allow easy install in the future.

You ‘can’ build a smaller home, but VA appraisals are heavily reliant on square footage, so often the lot price + construction price exceeds the future value appraisal of the home and you’re ‘under water’ from the perspective of a lender which is why you don’t often see smaller homes built in this area.

We primarily focus on new construction but we would entertain a large scale addition with a full gut of existing space if it was in our target building area.

1 year comprehensive coverage on everything top to bottom. Additionally, we pay a 3rd party company for a 10 yr. structural warranty on your home which is also transferable to a new buyer should you happen to sell.
