In this week’s Real Estate section, The Washington Post highlighted increased demand for new construction homes. Post reporter, Carisa Crawford Chappell said, “New construction has become the saving grace for a growing number of buyers drawn into the market by historically low mortgage rates fighting over a dwindling inventory of existing homes. And now that unfulfilled demand for resale homes is spurring a boom in the home-building market.”
Purchasing a new home is an exciting process and there are many things to consider. These include which neighborhood you want to live in, what type of home (single family, townhome or condo) and whether to purchase a new construction home or a resale. To help you determine if buying a new construction home is right for you, we've created a comprehensive Guide to Purchasing a New Construction Home. The guide compares the benefits of purchasing a new home versus an older home, describes the construction process, provides tips for selecting new home options and much more!

“Winter is coming” means something a little different this year. While we aren’t battling the night king, many of us are anxiously anticipating shorter, colder days as we continue to work, go to school, and quarantine at home. Spending more time than ever in our homes starts to look a bit different as the sun sets earlier and the temperatures drop. The changing season is a reminder of how staying safe and healthy has been at the top of our minds during these unprecedented COVID-19 times. As the temperatures shift, we look forward to refocusing and refreshing our mindsets to stay healthy, happy, fulfilled, and active throughout the winter season.
With the ever-changing environment, our priorities remain the health, well-being, and safety of our team, homeowners, neighbors, and community. We have reorganized and re-imagined the layout and design of each of our sales centers to ensure the safety and comfort of guests during their appointments. You may now schedule both in-person and virtual appointments at each of our currently selling communities.
