Maryland offers a variety of choices when it comes to new home construction. Communities may include one of many new mixed-use developments that incorporate homes as well as shops, restaurants, residential support services such as dry cleaning and technology, cafes, along with open space, athletic centers, and outdoor recreation. There are many planned developments with new homes for sale in Maryland, and some may offer community amenities such as club houses, walking paths, swimming pools, and more. These communities often offer quick turn-around between home site and floorplan selection to construction, if that is what you are looking for. Maryland is also home to many picturesque custom home sites, offering space and solitude, and the ability to fully customize your dream home to perfectly suit your lifestyle.
When selecting a new construction home site, it’s important to have an understanding of the physical properties that the site offers, and compare those to what you are seeking in a home and community. Will there be sidewalks and street lights? Will there be a Homeowner’s Association? How will the utilities be delivered to the property, and are the utilities included in the sale price? Is the home serviced by public water, or by a well? And is the property serviced by a sewer system, or does it offer a septic system? Is the home on a shared or private driveway?
Many new home buyers begin a new home purchase on their own without the guidance of a Realtor, and can quickly become overwhelmed with the wide array of options and development that different properties offer. For instance, is the lot recorded? Who pays the transfer taxes, installs the driveway, the septic system, utilities, and water, and are those costs included or in addition to the purchase price?
