The real estate market in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and surrounding areas has been nothing less than exciting this summer season ☀️ . We have heard countless stories of 5 -10 offers on the same house and increasing competition to purchase homes in this region. Many have even said that they plan on waiting for it to cool off, or have settled for looking at areas outside of their preferred location. Thankfully, with Ironwood Homes, we have been blessed to still offer options to prospective homeowners in the Fredericksburg region. Here is how: 

Instead of fighting for used inventory on the housing market, we encourage new home buyers to build instead! We can build a new Ironwood Home (the Boxwood, Hemlock, or Leland) for a competitive price in the current marketing. Buying new is always better than used, especially if you don’t have to fight someone for it 😊 . 

The first step is going to be approved for a construction load. This is different from your conventional financing because you can combine both the purchase of land and the building of the home into one payment. Once you are qualified, we can connect you with an agent to look for land that meets your requirements and budget 💰. 

Once you find the land, we will work with you and your lender to write a contract for your model of choice, and then we can submit the paperwork for your permit. Permitting can take up to 3 months, so the sooner we connect you with our agent, the better. 

Once the building permit is approved, and in hand, it typically takes us 90-120 days to complete your build 🔨 . When all is said and done, that time will be worth the wait when you get the keys to your brand new Ironwood Home. 

We know looking for a home 🏡 in the current real estate market can be difficult, and that is why we are excited to offer a solution. If you are interested in finding out more about building a home in Fredericksburg or have questions, please get in touch at 

We look forward to talking with you soon!
