First-time homebuyer? Moving up? Down-sizing? Whatever your motivation may be, NOW is the time to act because 30-year, fixed-rate mortgages have hit record low rates. Freddie Mac has just announced that rates are now as low as 3.13% — some of the lowest in US history! Buying a new home may sound counter-intuitive right now, with so much negative economic news these days, but a couple of factors make it easy to understand. In most parts of the country, construction is still categorized as an essential industry, so new homes continue to be built. The Federal Reserve’s recent interest rate cuts have helped reduce mortgage rates to these history-making lows.
Why NOW is the Right Time to Buy in Birchwood
Birchwood’s new homebuilders are still going strong, continually showcasing innovative new designs that offer low-maintenance, never-before-built condominiums, courtyards, villas, bungalows, carriages and single family homes by Miller & Smith, Van Metre Homes and Winchester Homes. Urban style homes are especially popular here because they offer a modern style and most are within a few miles of the stores, restaurants and events at the Brambleton Town Center. That’s a great lifestyle combination for any buyer, but especially for mature buyers who are down-sizing after raising their families in favor of a more urban way of living. Builders help make the buying process easy here, too. Many offer services like virtual home tours to make comparison shopping simple and convenient.
Aside from the new homes themselves, Birchwood offers the amenities and character fitting the more active, engaged lifestyle that people now seek.
It’s in a convenient urban setting, everything is integrated, and walkability is a top priority. As noted earlier, the bustling Town Center’s shops, restaurants, cafes, fitness, salons and even physicians’ and dentists’ offices, are close to home. And the Brambleton Town Center offers one of the most technologically-advanced new public libraries in the nation.
The focus on urban-inspired homes goes beyond the homes themselves – Birchwood’s shared spaces are woven into the urban-influenced design for more ways to get to know neighbors and a much more refreshing vibe than suburban settings of a generation ago.
Nature and recreation are intertwined with the urban sensibility, too. Open public green space, miles of trails and inviting parks are just as close to new homes as the city-inspired amenities. Birchwood at Brambleton is no mere “development” – this is a complete hometown, and unlike anything in the DC metropolitan area.
