Frederick MD Demographic Data

Demographic Data Doesn’t Lie. Frederick County, Maryland Is the Place to Be.

As America approaches its next census in 2020, conversations in national media and local diners seem to be turning to how we live now compared to 20, 30, 40, 50 or just 10 years ago. Within the past decade, the daily acceleration of communication trends and technological advancement have changed the landscape, so to speak, of how Americans craft their daily lives and careers. In the 1980s, the age of the “Yuppie,” big cities were the ideal destination for where to work and live. But today, the Internet has leveled the playing/working field, and more people are returning to the small cities and towns that framed the childhoods of their parents and grandparents. And, the economic and demographic statistics show that “downsized” is the new upscale.

Case in point:  Frederick County, Maryland. Its rolling hills, historic sites and friendly atmosphere are just 40 or so miles from Baltimore and DC. Philadelphia, Richmond and even New York City are within a few hours’ drive or train trip. Boston, Chicago, Charlotte and Atlanta are within two hours between boarding pass and baggage claim from easily accessible airports. Frederick County offers a small town feeling, but it’s hardly “small time.”

The county’s population in 2019 stands at about 250,000, up by five percent from just 10 years ago. That influx of people has been driven by the expanding mix of high-paying industries here, like bioscience and medical research, communication and IT, financial services, education, mining and large-production agriculture. Median annual household income is nearly $85,000, above the average in historically prosperous states like California and New York. Diversity is on the rise in Frederick County, too, with the population of highly-educated immigrants increasing by nearly 10 percent in the past decade. Multiculturalism and multiple opportunities are making their home here in northern Maryland, continuing to weave the beautiful tapestry of modern America in a geographic landscape that has always been an inviting natural backdrop.

It’s no wonder, then, that new home communities like Landsdale are so popular. Developed by Elm Street Communities and featuring affordably-priced single family homes and townhomes from Lennar, NVHomes, Ryan, Winchester and Wormald, Landsdale is a snapshot of Frederick County’s fulfilling modern lifestyle. A 6,000 square foot, Craftsman styled Clubhouse greets visitors and residents with its Olympic sized swimming pool, tennis courts and entertaining rooms served by a restaurant-grade catering kitchen. Biking and hiking trails lace through Landsdale’s neighborhoods, with stops at pocket parks that dot the community. An outdoor amphitheater hosts family movie nights and live performances. A Frederick County elementary school will soon be built in the community so that kids can walk or bike to school. Landsdale is a picture of the best that 21stcentury America offers, which explains why so many people are choosing to build their homes, and their lives, in this Frederick County, MD enclave.

Award-Winning Frederick County Schools

Landsdale: Top Rated Fredrick County Schools

 

We can’t believe the school year is starting to push into summer break!  If only the weather would stay consistent. As it relates to summer, Landsdaleis surrounded by loads of camp options and local to-do’s. However, it also means that soon enough we’ll be staring down the start of a new school year – time flies when you’re having fun!

NOW is the time to consider where you want to be when school kicks off and the Frederick County school district is certainly one to consider. Frederick County Public School is a successful school system in a diverse and growing community. Frederick County bridges rural, suburban, and urban lifestyles near both the Washington, DC and Baltimore metropolitan communities.

Our residents can quickly confirm they balance top-rate academics with the personal caring and individual attention you would expect in a small town community. According to FCPS fast facts, the following is some things to consider:

  • Maryland has ranked among America's top states for top-quality public education from 2009-2018 [Education Week's Quality Countsreports].
  • While Maryland continues to lead the nation in Advanced Placement (AP) achievement, FCPS students' 3.27 mean AP exam score surpassed Maryland's 3.03 and the global 2.84. The percentage of students with AP scores 3 or better (on a 5-point scale, where 3 typically qualifies for college credit) was 73.6% at FCPS (with 4,522 exams), 64.7% statewide and 60.3% globally.
  • FCPS achievement also exceeds Maryland averages with scores that consistently surpass national averages on the College Board SAT. Our mean 2018 SAT score was 1,149, compared to Maryland's 1,066 and the nation's 1,049.
  • 99% of more than 1,000 employers surveyed indicated that FCPS students met or exceeded workplace readiness standards.

We believe Landsdalesets your kids up for success as it relates to a local community of year round events, sports, academics and perhaps the most exceptional quality of Landsdale is the incredible natural beauty surrounding it, making you feel that no matter what you’re doing, you’re living somewhere very special indeed.

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It

 

Recently the Washington Post sat down with a Winchester homebuyer at Landsdale. “We were tired of the hustle and bustle of Montgomery County, and living in a townhouse,” said Craig, 70, who used to work for the U.S. Department of Defense. “Roberta had an itch to scratch — she wanted a new single-family home, so we sized up and moved to Frederick County.”

Life truly happens at Landsdale, where you will find a comfortable, connected and caring community with sweeping views of Sugarloaf Mountain yet accessible to your everyday needs and wants - from errands to commuting.

Retirees Roberta and Craig Capen spent more than four decades living in Montgomery Village before buying in the Landsdale community in Monrovia, Md. The Capens purchased the Williamsport floor plan — one of seven single-family floor plans offered by Winchester Homes — for about $625,000. They chose to build a four-foot addition on one side and a porch at the front — both are optional — and to upgrade some of the finishes.

We are thrilled the excitement for the community was shared in the Washington Post and that The Capens found their natural escape in Landsdale.

Three Smart Choices For One-Level Living At Landsdale

One of the biggest home design trends in recent years is the first-floor owner’s suite. Historically, this product has been most popular with empty nesters looking for smaller active living space without stairs and additional upstairs space for guests. Today, more and more younger families are opting for this style of home as well, as it provides a more flexible living environment with easier access to primary living spaces, added privacy and separation, and plenty of room for everyone to spread out comfortably.

Ultimately, the decision to select a home with a first-floor owner’s suite is personal. That is why Landsdale is offering homeowners three new and diverse one-level living floorplans to choose from.

It features a luxurious private owner’s suite, lavish owner’s bathroom and huge walk-in closet, two additional bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, a two-car garage, and 2,374+ square feet. The foyer and fo  rmal dining room give a feeling of openness and light, flowing seamlessly into the open kitchen and spacious great room with a large center island and dinette, both perfect for entertaining or simply spending time together as a family.

 

Lennar Frederick MD New HomesThe Bonnington, by Lennar, expertly blends the need for space with the desire for efficiency. This beautiful two-story home features a deluxe first-floor owner’s suite with spa-like bathroom and super shower, three secondary bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, a two-car garage, and 2,892+ square feet. A library is adjacent to the formal dining room and the entry hall leads into the open concept gourmet kitchen with large breakfast nook and a great room with vaulted ceiling, ideal for an open, easy flow while hosting parties or family gatherings.

 

Winchester Homes Williamsport Model Frederick MD New HomesThe Williamsport, by Winchester Homes, features single-level “ranch-style” living in an open and inviting floor plan including a large owner’s suite, two generous secondary bedrooms, two to three baths, a two-car garage and 2,440+ square feet. At the front of the home, the foyer is flanked by a formal living room and dining room, while to the rear, you’ll find the family room and an expansive kitchen that’s perfect for casual get-togethers with family and friends. The lower level is a blank canvas that can be customized to match your lifestyle needs.

The options to personalize these exquisite home designs are endless.

New Construction Homebuyers Resources

Purchasing a new home is an exciting time. However, it can be daunting as well. Buying a new construction home is a little different than purchasing a resale home. When buying a new house, you will need to understand a few things about the home buying process. With a little time and knowledge you can have the new home of your dreams.

Buying a New Construction Home

Many prospective homebuyers are disappointed by the selection of homes in their target area. It’s not uncommon to find homes that simply don’t meet a family's needs or expectations. They’re either too small, outdated or lack storage space. Whatever the reason, resale homes often fall short. That is why buying a new construction home is the best option for homebuyers today.

When you purchase a new construction home, you get to control various aspects of its layout and design elements. This might include adding extra bedrooms or bathrooms and upgrading flooring and countertops. When you buy new construction, you buy directly from the home builder.

Choosing your community

Before buying a new home, make sure that you understand the neighborhood’s details and future plans. This can help you determine if the community is right for you. Researching the home builder is equally important. Make sure that you choose a respectable developer with a proven track record.

Determine how much you can reasonably spend on your new home. Keep in mind that there will be additional costs involved including property taxes, closing costs, homeowners insurance, maintenance, repair costs and more.

Amenities and features

It’s important to understand what’s included with the home and what is not. Before buying, you will probably look at a model home. Keep in mind that model homes are typically full of upgrades and amenities. This is so that the builder can show you what is possible in your new home. Ask questions and determine which upgrades are most important to you and which ones you can live without.

Buying a new construction home doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, it might end up being the best decision you ever make.
