Southern Development Homes

Our business is more than just building the perfect home. It’s about building community and relationships, too.

Southern Development Homes is an independent Charlottesville-based builder founded in 1999 by Frank Ballif, a University of Virginia graduate. We are proud of the relationships we have cultivated while building quality and sustainable new homes for more than 1,000 local families.

The ”Homegrown Difference” is developed through connecting with our customers, local real estate agents, our trade partners and the Charlottesville community. We believe in the continual improvement of our products and experience and are known for exceptional service.

At Southern Development Homes, we stand behind the values of hard work, dependability, accountability and respect to create your perfect home and build a thriving a community. In 10 simple steps, you’ll choose a community and floor plan, select fixtures and materials, and monitor progress until you move into your new home.
