When you live in an expensive region such as the Washington-metropolitan area, finding a house to buy for less than $400,000 can be challenging. Prince George’s County, which shares a long border with the District, offers some of the most affordable housing in the region. Buyers there can find townhouses and single-family houses for under $400,000, including new construction.

Newly built townhouses at Wood Glen, under construction by Timberlake Home and base priced from $354,900 and $384,990, have three or four finished levels, about 2,000 to 2,238 finished square feet and a two-car garage.

The community at 9891 Good Luck Rd. in Lanham is a 10-minute drive from the Greenbelt Metro and MARC train station and is close to Route 1, the Baltimore-Washington Parkway and Interstate 95 for commuting to Washington, Annapolis or Baltimore. While the community isn’t completely walkable, which many buyers today want, residents can walk to a day-care center and to DuVal High School. Restaurants and shopping centers are within a short driving distance.
