Potomac, MD Homes For Sale
Potomac, Maryland is not a community where bargain hunters spend much time. No, this is the land of monstrous multimillion dollar homes for sale that swallow ordinary houses whole before burping impolitely. Prices here frequently reach into eight-figure territory. And, these pricy digs are not exceptions to the rule. As you scroll through a large inventory of listings, you’ll find page after page of mega-mansions. In fact, the median list price for all properties combined is over a million dollars.
Before non-millionaires trudge away dispiritedly, it should be noted that there are condos for sale, starting in the low-to-mid six figure range. However, even condos rise rapidly in price, including luxury row house-style townhomes with a retro look in the prestigious Park Potomac mixed-use urban village development. You’ll also find swank lofts and penthouses in downtown Potomac that climb past the seven-figure mark. For more information about Potomac, MD homes for sale, give us a call today!

More About the Potomac Real Estate Market
Nestling against the banks of the winding river of the same name, Potomac covers over 26 square miles, and is home to over 45,000 residents. The community lies just a couple miles north of the Washington, DC border. There’s tons of undeveloped land here, and while some of it is occupied by splendid parks and pristine wetlands, there is still room for developers to build even more gargantuan homes for sale.
This part of Montgomery County dates back to early colonial days. Residential development ramped up in the early 1900s and has continued steadily. There are, however, community leaders who are trying to hold the line against rampant over-building, as well as preserve a certain sense of history. Those eyeing the 10-bedroom, $18 million McMonstrosity for sale, please try not to snicker.
The amount of parks and recreational areas within the community are staggering, including C&O Canal National Historical Park, Rock Run Park, Avenal Park, Cabin John Regional Park, Booze Creek Park, Kilgour Branch Park, Potomac Woods Park, Watts Branch Stream Valley Park, and finally, Fair Road Park. In other words, there’s a plethora of places to take your dogs, bicycles, kids, strollers, or just a Grande cup of coffee with which to sit and ponder the universe before heading back to your waterfront mansion.
Other amenities include the absolutely delightful Potomac Village farmers market, top schools, and restaurants such as MoCo’s Founding Farmers, Normandy Farm Restaurants, and Tavern at River Falls. And while we tease about the uber-mansions, the inventory of homes for sale is actually quite varied, including Colonial, French Country, Neo-Georgian, Mediterranean, Victorian, Contemporary, Tudor, Cape Cod and more.
