A Lesson on Lots

We offer a “build on your lot” program for home buyers that wish to build on their own property. Joy Design + Build will construct a custom home specifically to fit on your lot. Alternatively, if you do not currently own a lot, but wish to purchase one, finding an ideal home site can sometimes be a hassle and an exercise in humility. At Joy Design + Build, we are often approached by developers, realtors and individuals with fantastic opportunities for tear downs before they are ever published on Bright Multiple Listing System (MLS). In addition, we have a robust prospecting program in practically every neighborhood in the McLean and Arlington areas, which provides us with undisclosed and unavailable market knowledge about future lot availability. Let us know where you want to build you dream home, and we’ll scour the earth until we find the ideal lot for your inspired investment by Joy Design + Build.
