Hi,

Besides Woodbridge, are there any other locations that have new homes?

Does anyone know if the new homes allow you to make changes in them?

What are the best spots in Woodbridge to get a new home?

I don't know much about Woodbridge but there are new homes being built all over NoVA.

In large scale they are being built in the further out suburbs (places that used to be farmland and are being built up for the first time) such as Gainesville/Nokesville/Haymarket out 66, or Purcellville/Round Hill out Rt 7.

In closer-in, more established communities, new construction is small scale (because you have to knock an old house down to put a new one up), but you see it in places with high property values. Vienna/Tysons springs to mind as a place where 1950s ranchers are being torn down and McMansions built, also Fairfax.

You can make any interior changes to new houses (floors, cabinets, etc you can do yourself, plumbing/wiring require licensed professionals), exterior changes will require HOA permission if the house is in an HOA. With pre-construction purchases you can choose a lot of the options (or "upgrades") to be put into the house, some of which are exterior (decks, dormers).

All the farther out suburbs (as posted above) will have new home subdivisions. As for closer to town--not much--hardly any land available.

Most tract home builders will let you make smaller changes for a fee. Stuff like moving a wall, eliminating columns, things like that. They usually will not do major changes because it is not cost efficient for them.

Best spots in Woodbridge for new homes would be Montclair, Lake Ridge, Woodbridge (out by the county government center) and Cardinal Drive. While there is a good amount of contruction and huge neigbhorhoods going up off of Rt. 1, I would steer clear of there because Rt. 1 is just so awful. It is an eyesore that they cannot seem to fix. I would not want to live directly off of it.

Haymarket/Dominion Valley has new homes going up, albeit at a slower rate than even this past summer. There is a newer section called "The Villages Collection" where they are building new "neo-classical" homes much like Round Hill just outside of Purcellville. My husband and I looked at both communities and very much liked the available floorplans as well as the many choices you had relative to interiors. There were a number of communities in Gainesville and Bristow that also had a lot of new-build opportunities but I am at a loss for their respective names.

Good luck to you in your search.
