HOW WE CAN HELP
Perhaps you love the property, the neighborhood and some aspects of the house, but it doesn’t quite meet your family’s needs. Before you make any decisions, let a BOWA Design Professional assist with a Purchase Consultation.
“Just a note to let you know we closed on the house… Thank you again for your time in helping us figure out the right place for us.”Purchase Evaluations: If you’re thinking about making an offer on a house or condo that requires a renovation before it can meet your needs, we can help you with that decision. Our Project Leaders will meet you at the property to help evaluate whether a renovation or addition can fit within the guidelines of building codes, zoning rules, and homeowner association limitations; meet your needs that are missing from the property; and be constructed within your budget goals.
Home Inspection Report Analysis: Our experts will review your home inspection report with you to guide you on the costs and difficulties associated with identified issues. Our experience and knowledge have shown us that many of the items deemed “red flags” to buyers, are many times easily remedied during an otherwise planned renovation. Our team can help you sort through these decisions.
Realistic Project Planning: If you decide to move forward, we can work with you to identify priorities and develop a master construction plan, which will accomplish your goals with a manageable budget and timeline. Over the years, we have found that many clients appreciate a phased approach to construction, which focuses first on top priorities, and allows them to begin enjoying their new home as secondary priorities are addressed or planned for in the future.
Timely Response and Evaluation: We understand that time is of the essence when it comes to home purchases. As such, our design build experts are ready to assist, often on short notice. We can help you to quickly evaluate your options so you can make an educated decision. When we’re involved early, our team can often provide cost, timing and level of finish details before you make an offer or even sign a contract with us.
Relocating to the Greater DC Area: If you’re moving to this area, you’ll appreciate the experience our team has in working with clients who are remote. Perhaps you want to be closer to family in Potomac, Great Falls or Middleburg, but need to finish up the school year in California. Or, your overseas assignment is wrapping up and you’ll be returning to DC, Alexandria or Reston. Or you’re accepting a new position with a company in Arlington. Our team can help you to evaluate homes and even plan and execute a remodeling project from your current location using web meetings, shared docs, weekly updates and other tools.
