A recent article in CNN's Money Magazine ranked Germantown #24 among America's best places to live. There's a lot here to like – low unemployment, good schools and lots of parks and recreational facilities. Add affordability to the list as well. Even though the average family income is fairly high at $100,538, the media property list price is only $289,900. Let's dig a little bit digger into the reasons for such competitive prices.
If some have accused Germantown developers of overbuilding, more will point out an obvious fact, that a vibrant economy and influx of new residents demanded more housing. It's also important to note that it hasn't simply been a matter of new residential developments. The Germantown Employment Area Sector Plan was launched in 2009, seeking to transform the central employment district into a vibrant downtown community with mixed-use developments, mirroring successful trend in other major urban centers including downtown Washington DC.
All in all, sustainable growth is becoming a reality in Germantown. Housing stats are rebounding and you'll get a lot of bang for your buck. Three-bedroom townhouses can be had for under $200,000 with larger single-family homes ranging from around $400,000 to over a million. That includes a range of styles, including the ever-present Colonial Revivals and their various subsets, plus Cape Cods, Tudors, Ramblers, split-levels and various contemporary designs. There's something for everyone here, from bucolic villages that are rich in history to trendy new downtown lofts. There's little doubt that the future is bright in Germantown.
