Overseeing building a custom home is a bigger job than many home buyers want to take on, while selecting a new home which is already completed leaves many buyers unhappy with some of the choices the builder has made. There is a middle ground which can be just right: Make key changes to a builder’s spec house by working with the  builder while there is still time to make your own selections.


Dozens of builders are in the early stages of building scores of new homes in Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Glen Echo and Cabin John. Most are not yet listed in the Multiple List System.There is still time to make your own selections for many of these homes.


Are you looking for a new home in a particular neighborhood or location, or for special features (like an elevator or a master bedroom on the main level) or a large lot? Would you like to choose your own colors and finishes, appliances, cabinetry, countertops, floor coverings, hardware, trim and more? If you begin early enough you may even be able to move or add a door, wall or window.


One of our special services is to let our clients know about upcoming new homes which meet their unique needs long before they are listed for sale – it’s all just part of our  Homebuyer Advantage program.


Let us know what you’re looking for and we will be happy to help.
