The Stars are Aligned for First Time Home Buyers

Friday, January 9, 2015

As one of the largest master planned communities in the Washington Metro area, St. Charles offers single family, townhome and apartment options to those looking for walkable, tree-lined neighborhoods combined with unmatched amenities. But how do you know whether renting or buying is the best option for you and your family?

Realty Trac recently released data showing that in many U.S. markets, buying is a more affordable option, in terms of percent of household income needed, than renting.

For those who currently rent and are considering a home purchase, Realtor® has declared 2015 “The Year of the First-Time Home Buyer” due to a combination of low interest rates, rising salaries and strengthening economic factors.  

St. Charles, always a leader in value for quality new homes, has beautifully designed single family and townhomes from national builders Lennar and Ryan Homes ready for quick delivery. Families moving into these homes will be able to send their children to walkable neighborhood schools as well as the newest, most intriguing high school to open in Southern Maryland, St. Charles High School.

At St. Charles, we believe in putting dreams within reach. Our master planned community surrounds you with neighborhood centers with pools and playgrounds, excellent schools, convenient shopping and restaurants and abundant recreational resources – all just 11 miles south of the Capital Beltway. With a dozen different single family home models to choose from and 10 different townhome models, the selection has never been better.

We encourage you to visit to explore the many well-priced home options waiting for you.
