How to Buy Prime Properties in Bethesda, Arlington, Chevy Chase, McLean & NWDC Without Competing

Watch this video to learn how our clients are able to purchase the best properties in Bethesda, DC, McLean, Arlington & Chevy Chase, without competing (many are walking distance to a Metro station):

 

Building A Custom Home On A “Prime” Building Lot Without Competing!

The property above is a custom built home on one of our tear-down building lots in the Edgemoor neighborhood in downtown Bethesda. 

The building lot is 7,700 square feet and flat and the new owners will walk just 7 minutes to the Starbucks, the Bethesda Apple Store and other downtown Bethesda dining and shopping establishments.
This property was never available to the general public and we were able to purchase the property with zero competition.

The process we used with our client is the exact same process we use to acquire, develop, and build the spec-homes we sell.

Here’s our process:

Define Your Requirements 

The first step we do with you is to define your requirements for your new home.
What are your requirements for the land?  Location, size, orientation of home, trees, no trees, topography, etc.?
And what are your requirements for your new home – size, style, options, rooms, etc.?

Match You To A Tear-down Lot

Then, based on your land requirements, we’ll match you up with one of our 100s of properties we’re in the process of acquiring from our “private” acquisitions list. You won’t see these properties on Zillow, Redfin, Realtor.com or the multiple listing service. Here’s a map of just some of the properties we’re working on now.

Some of these take us five years or longer to acquire!

Verify Buildability of Lot

Next, we’ll make sure we can build the home we defined with you above on the lot. We’ll check the zoning, the front, rear and side yard setbacks. Then we’ll check to make sure we understand implications of any easements, flood plains, resource protection areas, burial grounds and other potential encroachments on the land that could adversely impact your new home plan.

Create New Home Plan 

Now this is where the fun starts. Kevin, our “genius” in-house architect, will create a basement plan, a first floor plan, a second floor plan and a third floor (if you want one) and a front elevation of the new home and show you how the home sits on the plat or the lot. Watch here to see a concept plan example for a new home we’re building in N. Arlington.

Specifications and Pricing

After you know what the new home will look like and how it lays out on the building lot, our estimating team can calculate an exact price to build the new home (including site costs, demolition and utility connections). Here’s how we calculate the exact price of a custom home.

All of this is done in a matter of days and all before you put any money at risk on the building lot.

This is the exact road map to finally getting your dream home you’ll love.


Here’s How To Get Started To Become a Client

Obviously, we aren’t able to provide this service to everyone. 

You’ll need to have a new home budget of $1.4M or larger.

So, if you are looking for your dream home on a dream lot and you want to gain access to “prime” properties before anyone else even knows about them, then we should talk.

If you’re interested, let’s set up a time to jump on the phone. 

I’ll answer any questions you have, and I’ll ask you a few myself.

And if we both decide we’re a good fit, then we can move forward.

And if we don’t, that’s fine. If you’re happy, I’m happy. It really is that simple.

Just fill out your information below and we’ll schedule a time to talk.
