Potomac Shores is now four years old.  That means you can anticipate having at least ten to twelve homes FOR SALE in the community at any given time. That is just the nature of living in the Northern Virginia area. Job transfers and re locations are tied to the military and government. When a homeowner has to go, they have to go.

"Home buyers looking to purchase a home in Potomac Shores

in 2018 have many choices."

The builders are Ryan Homes, Brookfield and Pulte. They have many,many floor plans to choose from. Single family homes as well as luxury two car garage town homes are being offered and Main Floor Master Bedroom Villas.

Average time it takes to build a new home is 4-6 months. Some builders will consider Contingent Contacts but you must place your home on the market right away. That is where you definitely needs a good REALTOR to help you coordinate things.Watch the video below to learn how to handle the long build times with selling your current home.

Buyers have about 27 different home styles/models  to choose from as well as  the homes for sale on the resale market.

One reason you would want to consider the resale homes is this. You can move right in. Also if you have a home to sell, you can move door to door. NO waiting! Most of the resale homes currently available in Potomac Shores are the originial Tidewater Design  floor-plans that are no longer offered in the new Southern Neighborhoods! Homes such as the John Smith, the Hampton, the Monroe and they MaryPeake,the Pembrook and the Chamberlin are no longer offered by the builder.  These homes can be found in the  The Cove and Shores neighborhoods.

Another tip is there is no longer a Visitor Center.  So there is no way for you the consumer to get a total overview and tour of the community. That is just one reason to call a local REALTOR who specializes in selling homes in the  Potomac Shores Neighborhood. We will be happy to give you a full tour.  Patty also worked for Ryan and knows the floor-plans, the vision of SunCal and the complexity of the community. It is a Legacy Community. The community offers luxury single family homes, move-up single family homes, starter single family homes, two car garage townhouses, as well as main floor bedroom villa's! There are so many choices.
