Purchasing a new construction home is an exciting process as you watch your dream home come to life. Many of the steps in purchasing a new construction home are similar to purchasing a resale, such as signing a contract and securing a loan. However, since the home is new, there are a few additional steps to not only finalize the sale, but also to make the home your own such as selecting options and meeting with the builder for walk-throughs during various stages of the building process.
Tom Maddox has seen Rockville’s landscape change dramatically since he was a boy in the 1940s. “From the center of Rockville, you didn’t have to go three miles without encountering a working farm,” says Maddox, the third generation in a family of surveyors who’ve helped developers transform the city and its surroundings from a rural outpost in the 19th century into the thriving metropolitan suburb it is today.

As we welcome a New Year at the stroke of midnight on December 31st, many of us see the calendar starting again as a chance to instill our own new beginnings. An annual time to reassess and realign our goals, it’s also a chance to recharge, reset, and reflect on our habits, mindsets, and lifestyle. At the heart of most resolutions lists is a hope to find an overall healthier and happier lifestyle. Often this can be achieved by incorporating and practicing wellness in our daily lives.
