The inventory for available lots and land in the Northern Virginia area is supremely scarce. As such, premium home builders like Joy Design + Build are constantly looking for homeowners wanting to sell their tear downs on valuable lots in great neighborhoods so new families can begin building new memories in their custom home at that same address. In some cases, we play match-maker; discreetly putting families together to meet a common goal. In other cases, we buy lots and tear downs directly from homeowners that we believe are in high-growth areas, with high ranking schools and great neighborhoods.

However, sometimes the best address for your dream home is your own! In this instance, finding the right combination of experience and expertise is the secret to a stress-free build. Afterall, every lot is unique with its own topography, restrictions, covenants, set-backs and easements. Choosing Joy Design + Build to build on your lot is like winning the golden ticket! As a second generation builder, we have long standing relationships with key regulators at every step of the process. Whether you only have a few saved photos on Instagram, or know exactly what you want, together we can (and will) design your dream home on your own turf.

We Buy Lots

Quick, Quiet and Fair.

Is your land worth more than your home? A good indicator is to look at homes around your neighborhood. Have many of your neighbor’s homes have been rebuilt, or substantially renovated? If the answer is yes, it could mean your property value is quite significant. With an exclusive focus on the Northern Virginia market, we are the go-to company when a family decides to sell their beloved home to a builder; knowing that we have many clients looking to build their “forever” home in your neighborhood. Or maybe even on your lot? If you are considering taking that next step towards selling your home, please allow us to share the many ways Joy Design + Build is committed to making a drama-free transition for you and your memories.

Build on Your Lot

Nothing cookie-cutter about it.

As a two-generation builder, we know that in some cases, the perfect lot for your dream home happens to be your current address! With Joy Design + Build as your custom home builder, we handle all the details of development, intricacies of deed restrictions and review all site improvements. We research for any necessary permitting, special zoning requirements, setbacks and possible easement regulations needed for building your dream home on your own lot. Once this information is gathered, we transparently share our findings along with our expert recommendations. Our goal is to deliver you a one-of-a-kind home, without stress and without surprises.
