Where do the buyers of David James Homes come from? (Part One)

That answer depends on the design center and office because every sales market is different.

David James Homes, Smith Mountain Lake/LakeWatch

Smith Mountain Lake is a resort community that encompasses three rural counties. Built as a hydroelectric dam in the mid-1960s, the 20,000-acre lake is a recreational playground for thousands. Many of thousands who visit eventually decide to make the lake their permanent home upon retirement.  The majority of those who relocate are retirees coming from the northeastern U.S., with the highest percentage from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Northern Virginia/Washington, D.C. In addition to the lake, the area features a  low cost of living, as well as low taxes. The median ages of those buyers are between 50 and 60 years old, according to Sales Manager Michel Kordich.

David James Homes, Winchester, Virginia

Located at the upper tip of Virginia and linked by the main corridor of I-81, the Winchester office of David James Homes caters to a disparate assortment of customers from a tri-state region. Winchester’s office serves customers who are commuters to Washington, D.C., residents of  West Virginia and those who live in outlying areas of Loudon County and Front Royal. The biggest factor that is driving housing in Winchester  is the lack of inventory. Availability of affordable housing is causing people to consider building as a viable alternative. The median age of home buyers in this area is between 40 and 50 years old, said Sales Manager Dan Connolly.

David James Homes, Roanoke, Virginia

Surrounded by the natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Roanoke, Virginia is a vibrant city that offers a myriad of outdoor activities.

Approximately 70 to 80 percent of Roanoke’s customers are home-grown while 20 to 30 percent are from out of the area, usually from the northeast. The median age of those who  are building are in their 50s, according to  Brian Wescott.
