Helping End Homelessness in Northern VA, One Shelter at a Time

Van Metre Homes is incredibly proud to support the efforts of area nonprofit, HomeAid Northern Virginia — with our very own Executive Vice President Brian Davidson at the helm, who serves as Executive Committee President on the 2015 HomeAid Board of Directors. HomeAid Northern Virginia, a chapter of the larger HomeAid America, has committed itself to helping local organizations provide quality housing for the too-many Virginia families and individuals who struggle to get by without a permanent place to call home.

“With the invaluable support of homebuilders like Van Metre and other corporate sponsors too many to name, HomeAid America has completed 96 projects that have benefited more than 72,000 homeless individuals since its inception in 2001,” said Brian Davidson, Executive Vice President of Van Metre Homes and HomeAid Northern Virginia Board of Directors President. “It’s such a worthy cause: Rewarding, and fun to boot, especially come Gala season.”

Did someone say Gala?

Yes! This November, HomeAid Northern Virginia is hosting the 14th Annual Gala & Auction: There’s No Place Like Home on Saturday, November 7 at the Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles. Take a trip down the famed yellow brick road for a night of live and silent auctions; raffle prizes; great food, and so much more — all to help HomeAid Northern Virginia (and Van Metre Homes!) provide homes for those without them.

About HomeAid Northern Virginia

In the great Commonwealth of Virginia, approximately 40,000 people are homeless — nearly 5000 in northern Virginia alone. These people, our neighbors and fellow Americans live in their cars, on the streets, in wooded areas, abandoned buildings, or anywhere they might find brief respite from the elements. And to make matters even more disheartening, a full quarter of the homeless population is made up by children. Someone has to say no more; someone has to do something about this.

That someone is HomeAid Northern Virginia. The nonprofit organization has, for over a decade, taken on projects to renovate existing, and construct new shelter facilities that house thousands of homeless families and individuals each year. With the support of homebuilders and trade partners, HomeAid Northern Virginia is able to provide significant cost savings to the shelters so they might better serve the needs of Virginians in crisis.

When You Know Buying a Centre Park Elevator Condo is Right For You

Life Outside the Beltway (in a New Home by Van Metre) Means Luxury AND Location.

Single Family Homes Northern Virginia

The housing market in northern Virginia is booming, and showing no signs of slowing. After June 2015 recorded the highest new home sales numbers is nearly a decade, July was not to be outdone, with sales rising even higher than the month before (according to RealEstate Business Intelligence).

This heightened level of activity means two things: More people than ever before are moving into the region, and the market is changing. Spurred on by ever-expanding transit options, newly constructed developments, and changing homebuyer priorities, what might be considered prime real estate is moving outside the Beltway — and into communities like Ashburn and Brambleton.

What’s so great about life outside the Beltway?

Life outside the I-495 Beltway means more room for growth, which also means a vaster selection and greater affordability… but also a longer commute. Still, many northern Virginia homebuyers are growing less attracted to older homes on larger lots in the closer suburbs, and more attracted to areas like Loudoun County, where Van Metre is building large, state-of-the-art homes.

Luxury, or location, or both?

Take Belmont Glen Village for example, in Loudoun County’s Ashburn. This luxury single-family home community features new home designs with charming exteriors; innovative, open flexible designs; and over 3000 square foot of living space.

Luxury, check.

And it can’t be neglected to mention that Belmont Glen Village is located just minutes from the Dulles Greenway, and soon: Metro’s Silver Line will offer residents quick and convenient access to Dulles International Airport and everything the capital city’s inner suburbs have to offer.

Location, check.

What may have, just a few years ago, seemed much too far a distance to commute suddenly looks more attractive; suddenly seems more like home in Loudoun County.
