With all the negativity about today’s real estate market, people can easily forget the huge positive about current market conditions:  For first-time homebuyers, this is one of the best moments in American history – ever – to finally break free from renting and start building equity in a home that they own. Mortgage interest rates are still phenomenally low, and with today’s prices, many new-construction homes are actually less expensive than older, resale homes (and without the need for costly redecorating or remodeling). A prime example of brand new homes outweighing older homes for affordability is Howard Square, Ryan Homes’ new garage townhome community in Elkridge. Starting in the low $230’s, they are the lowest-priced new garage townhomes in Howard County, and are priced lower than many older homes on the market. For first-time buyers, this is, literally, a historic opportunity.

Howard Square will hold an Open House Event for first-time homebuyers on Sunday, July 17th from 12-6 p.m. The event will include personalized model home tours and complimentary refreshments.

Ryan Homes’ 1-car garage townhomes at Howard Square aren’t simply unique because of their bottom line price, but for what buyers get for that price. Their list of included features far exceeds what most townhomes include at this price point. Each one includes 3 finished levels, 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, and spacious kitchens with G.E.® appliances and Timberlake® cabinetry. Like all new Ryan Homes, the townhomes at Howard Square are fully ENERGY STAR® Qualified, for utility costs that can be up to 30% lower** than standard homes. (In fact, Ryan Homes was recently named 2011 EPA ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year.) The homes are also backed by Ryan Homes’ comprehensive 10-year structural warranty, largely recognized as one of the best in the building industry. Their energy efficiency and warranty coverage translate into lower cost of ownership and reassuring peace of mind that buyers simply can’t get in an older resale home. Buying a new home also allows buyers to choose optional features and cover the cost in their mortgage. Howard Square townhomes offer some of Ryan’s most popular optional features, including granite kitchen countertops and stainless steel appliances, extensive hardwood and ceramic tile flooring, a fireplace, and an owner’s bath that features a double-headed, spa-style shower.
