Clarksburg's roots go all the way back to Native American trader John Clarke who worked the Seneca trail. It was officially founded some years later in 1752, when Ashford Dowden received a forty-acre grant along with permission to build an inn. In 1770 Jamie Clarke, grandson of the old trader, built a general store, bringing additional residents to the area. The town continued to grow over time but its most notable boom didn't occur until the modern era. Clarksburg was rezoned in 1968 and again in 1994, clearing the way for a major expansion in new home and town home construction. Today, there are numerous neighborhood subdivisions including Arora Hills, Catawba Manor, Clarksburg Heights, Clarksburg Village, Clarksburg Town Center, Grace Farm and the Highlands of Clarksburg. The area in general is north of Germantown. It is also home to the Little Bennett Regional Park. Don't be fooled by the "Little" -- this park is massive.
When it comes to homes for sale in Clarksburg, there's plenty of choices. Detached single-family homes account for 70% of properties in the area with townhouses and condos making up 25%. Like Washington Metro in general, this is an area with a lot of luxury homes. Even so, values took a bit of a hit during the national real estate downturn. The market has been a bit volatile ever since, with a number of dips and spikes in both list and sales prices. The fluctuations can be a bit deceiving however, as continued new home and townhouse construction and sales tend to cause their own shifts. For instance, a significant cluster of townhouse sales within a quarter can bring average closing figures down while an uptick in pricey single-family home sales will have the opposite effect. At present, the median list price is $419,900 with sales prices averaging $375,300. The actual range goes from around $115,000 to over a million but the bulk of the action is in the mid-six figure territory, featuring recently built custom Colonials with all the bells and whistles.
Montgomery County, Maryland has been catching the attention of prominent magazines and list makers for the past decade. Known for a fast growing economy, a high average income and a comfortable way of life, the county is attracting a lot of new residents. This is part of the overall picture in Washington Metro of course, and that means the need for new housing. Back in 1994, the Clarksburg Master Plan was initiated, establishing a long-range vision of the community as the northernmost population center along the I-270 Corridor. In 2011, the plan was amended to accommodate a faster timetable for new retail including a new major grocery store. One of the county's most popular commuter suburbs, Clarksburg seems to be riding a wave of smart growth.
