Potomac Shores Life Offers Home Buyers something you do not find any where else in Virginia!
Potomac Shores in Dumfires, Virginia sits on the 2,000 acre Cherry Hill Peninsula is quickly becoming home to hundreds of home owners and for good reason. when complete the community will be home 3800 homes and will have 800 acres of green space reserved.
I have been writing about this community for over two years now and I am just amazed at the growth of the community. Everything Sun Cal the developer has promised has so far come true. It took courage for buyers to buy in a community that was just starting on a promise of things to come. As I speak to homeowners who now call Potomac Shores home from the beginning they are very please to see the amenities becoming reality.
Buyers today have the advantage of driving past the several amenities that earlier buyers only were told would come in the future. These original buyers were able to secure their pick of home sites and a lower price than toady's buyer. The early buyers had choices of floor plans that are no longer offered so as the resale homes come on the market they will be something different than the builder offers now in many cases.
Presently there are two resale homes in Potomac Shores for sale. We have been given the opportunity to be the listing agents on one of them. Both homeowners received transfer orders and thought they would live in the community for much longer. We also are hearing of others that will be moving in the future due to transfers. As these resale homes come on the market they offer peaceable occupancy since the construction is completed around them. In my opinion that has real value in a new home community along with having some custom painting done and window treatments in place a resale can be a terrific option for some buyers.Click here to learn more
The builders also sometimes have Immediate Delivery Homes available and these can also be a great value over building for buyers right now NV Homes has two one has six bedrooms including main level in law suite. Call me for a showing and let me share with you why this one is an outstanding buy!Click here to learn more
May 2016 -Update
As you enter Potomac Shores Main entrance you will see the newest neighborhood called The Crossing on the left. The new model homes are under construction for completion this summer and sales have been brisk in this section. The community is set up by Neighborhood Districts. The Crossing will feature both NV Homes and Ryan Homes and is selling now. I must say the lots are beautiful with many backing to either the golf course or the tree lined boulevard with a large berm between the homes and the street.
The Crossing- Now selling expect to spend a minimum of $525,000+with Ryan Homes and $630,000+ for the NV homes.( See turquoise arrow below on map below)
The Pointe - is now SOLD OUT ( This is the party street!)my partner/sister lives here and loves it.
The Cove- is nearing completion if you are looking for a good value the final lots here are a good bet with the added benefit of less construction around you.
The Shores - The main level living street only has a few home sites remain as I write this. I expect this section to be sold out by early summer.
The Overlook -NV Homes is almost sold out they do have two Immediate deliveries available and NV Homes will have lots backing to the Golf Course in The Crossing is we hurry!
Ground Work has started near the Potomac Shores Golf Club for future luxury town homes that will be sitting on a bluff within walking distance to the Town Center, Golf Club, Virginia Railway Express station and the recreation barns that will include a state of the art gym! To say these will be hot sellers is an understatement no matter what builder or type of product they build. There is not another community in all of Northern Virginia that comes close to this style of convenient living Contact me here if you would like to be the first to know more details as they come available. ( look to the right of yellow arrow to see new clearing)
I visit the community often and have noticed clearing down past John Paul which will be the future Southern Neighborhoods at this time no one knows for sure what will be built there. Based on the site plan that looks to be the clearing for the new middle school and Southern district neighborhoods. Time will tell and depending on sales pace in The Crossing I am willing to bet you will see a new neighborhood back there by late 2017. (The red arrow on the map)
The Potomac Shores Amenities progress update
The ground breaking for the new elementary school was today May 23rd and now the project is full speed ahead for opening September 2017. This will be Kindergarten through 8th grade until the new middle school is completed in 2020. The schools are located on the right as you enter the community.
The community has ten miles of walking trails and down at the waterfront next to Tim's River Shore the new canoe and paddle boat launch dock is being built for completion shortly.
Memorial Day if the weather allows will be a big day for neighbor's in the community as they get to get their first glimpse of the much anticipated Recreation Barns called The Shores Club. If you do not know about the Shores Club the devloper Sun Cal describes it as a 13,000 sq foot Private Indoor and Outdoor social experience. This Potomac Shores Club Video is so worth watching if you are looking for a new place to call home! (Yellow arrow in picture above shows location of The Shores Club)
Above is only the beginning of what this community will be when completed. As the community progresses here is what you can expect in the future.
The Woods District which will be a single family home neighborhood my guess is back by John Paul.
TheRiverBluff District which will have an be home to urban style condos and town homes.
The Tidewater District which will be home to a waterfront promenade, small luxury hotel, restaurants and boutiques style shops plus a VRE station for homeowners to commute daily to DC daily.
The Waterfront District which will feature a 450 slip marina one of the largest in Virginia
The Lake District that will be home to a corporate type business campus.

For Buyers Looking for a Home in Northern Virginia
If you are a buyer reading this post I would recommend putting Potomac Shores on your must see list!
I would be happy to talk with you about what life at Potomac Shores could be. I can put you in touch with eight of my clients who have made the choice to call Potomac Shores home so you can speak with them about Potomac Shores life. Don't just take my word for it speak to actual homeowners who can give you the real story about living here.
I am a New Home Buyer Specialist specialize and would be happy to give you a full overview of all your options both new and resale so that you can make an informed choice. Information you need to know if you go to a new home community here in Virginia and you sign in as a visitor you give up your right to representation for 30 to as long a 90 days! The builders do not tell you this.
You don't need representation to buy a new home you can of course work with the builder's sales staff. On the other hand it costs you nothing to have a REALTOR like myself help you and the builder pays my fee. They do not discount the home down if you come in without a REALTOR. Let's face it as a consumer "You Don't Know what You Don't Know", and that can hurt you when buying home in a new location. I pride myself in helping you the buyer to know your options and help you to save time, money and stress by being your advocate and help you navigate everything form lot choice to selections and all the way through the building process. I send my buyers construction updates while they are work so they can know what is happening with their new build. My clients get the benefit of my ten years of on site new home sales experience and they have found it to be not only valuable during the decision process as well as peace of mind to move forward and know they had someone working on their behalf.
Until my next update please feel free to contact me with any question you may have on Potomac Shores.

By the way if you find yourself in a new home model and want representation you can keep my card on your phone and use it when you register with a builder. That way you protect your right to representation should you decide to go back.
