Title insurance is boring, but Allied Title & Escrow is here to decode the jargon and make it (somewhat) more interesting. This biweekly feature will explore the mundane (but very necessary!) world of title insurance while sharing interesting stories of two friends’ entrepreneurial careers.

Purchasing land is a bit different than purchasing a home or commercial building.

In its vacant form, you may find yourself wondering about a few key things, such as what you can legally use the land for or what its true value is. For instance, will you legally be able to build a house on the land if that’s your intention? And, what is the value of the property when you take into consideration such things as drainage, road access, location and zoning restrictions?

And, of course, how will you protect your rights to the property? When buying a home, most consider title insurance to be a form of loss prevention for your property — so buying it is a must. But what about vacant land?

Check our latest blog post to find out the answer!

Are you considering a land purchase or planning to build on purchased land? Contact us with your questions and we’ll connect you with one of our title experts.

This article was written by Arlington Economic Development.

Arlington is an innovative and forward-thinking community. Our business community is comprised of many high-tech industries that are innovating in their fields, while also leading the way in sustainability. Arlington boasts more than 17 million square feet of certified green development.

Arlington is the first community in the nation to be certified LEED Platinum and is a nationally recognized leader in creating a sustainable and resilient urban environment. Our residents, businesses and government work collectively to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, combat climate change and promote energy efficiency — with an eye toward the ambitious goal of carbon neutrality by 2050. We take our environmental responsibilities seriously and encourage citizens, businesses and government agencies to be “green” in all they do.

For our business development, we’ve adopted a voluntary green building program that offers site plan developers bonus density in exchange for (at least) LEED Gold certification, additional energy requirements and other environmental components in an effort to encourage developers to build high-performance green buildings to reduce environmental impacts. This program uses the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® green building rating system as a standard to measure the comprehensive green approach of each project.

And it’s a philosophy that is Countywide, not just for our businesses. Arlington’s Department of Environmental Services is always looking at new and innovative methods of recycling. The Arlington Solar and Electric Vehicle Charger Co-op offers opportunities for those interested in using solar power. Our transportation initiatives look at cleaner and accessible public transit; in fact, more than half of Arlington commuters travel to work via transit, bike or on foot.

Urban agriculture is taking hold to create new, sustainable ways of creating fresh food in our urban community. And Arlington’s Green Home Choice provides free professional project consulting on home energy efficiency, comfort, water efficiency, indoor air quality and other sustainability measures.

In recent years, companies have put a greater emphasis on sustainability when making location and real estate decisions. Here in Arlington, that commitment to sustainability is already a way of life, and we continue to strengthen that commitment every day.

Say hi to Cali, the newest Adoptable Pet of the Week! Cali is a treat loving girl that loves watching Netflix and is looking for her forever home.

Cali’s friends at Animal Welfare League of Arlington, which is currently at or near capacity for its dog kennels, had this to say:

Cali’s favorite things are: treats, nose boops, cuddles, sticking her head out during car rides, and more treats in between!

Her special talent is: making sure to meet her quota of sniffing 2,000 blades of grass a day!

Her perfect day would be: wrapped up in a blanket and watching Netflix on the couch all day! She is now a Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul fan!

If Cali was an ice cream flavor, she would be: Being in Cali’s presence will leave you floating like a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a strawberry soda.

Important facts about Cali: She may have that big dog bark, but all she really wants to do is sniff the heck out of you and be your best friend.

Are you and Cali a match? Check out her complete profile to learn more and to meet Cali in-person!
