Building A New Home in Arlington, VA

Building A New Home in Arlington, VA

I went to visit clients of mine who bought a few months ago in the Berkshire Oakwood neighborhood. Down the street from them was the site of what I am sure will be a lovely new McMansion in Arlington.

Which got me thinking…if you’re ready to demo a house, or reface/renovate a home in Arlington – what does it take?

I would first talk to several local builders and contractors to find out the financial obligation and commitment before you ever start looking at properties. Many times, the builders will buy the land or existing house under their name for you and start building/renovating from there.

Otherwise, spend some time getting familiar with the Arlington County Permits:

The county has built a great website with lots of information you’ll find useful.
