For many first-time home buyers, finding the right place to purchase means giving primary attention to the monthly payment and cash needs. Many want a “starter home” that they can sell for profit in the future. Sometimes, that may mean buying in a relatively new area with plans for more development that could attract more buyers in a few years.

For example, the townhouse at 7 Webster Hill Ct. in Clarksburg, Md., priced at $399,000, is close to a playground and community parks, and it has woods in the back. Future development plans include a town center with stores, restaurants and an amphitheater for outdoor concerts to be built across the road from the house.

The townhouse is well below the median sales price for a home in Montgomery County, which was $488,123 in June, according to Bright MLS. Homeowner association dues — $109 per month — include access to a community pool, lawn maintenance, snow removal, trash and recycling. Annual property taxes are $4,204.
