Hello Andrea - abundant possibilities await a visionary real estate buyer in the Silver Spring/Ashton Maryland area.  Opportunity seems to be knocking.  Of course, a front door is needed along with lots of preparation and plans to take hold of opportunity.  Good luck with your marketing.

A buyer could walk into the county office tomorrow and get building permits, Michael Jacobs! That's how great of an opportunity this is. Perc-approved and ready to go... those lots are hard to come by!

Andrea Bedard  congratulations on your listing, just curious what is the timeline to get building permits in your part of the world? Once you tell me I will come back and share what our timeline is here in the Greater Los Angeles area, Endre

Thank you, Endre Barath, Jr.! Well, the more time-consuming part of the process has been completed already (the perc-testing and approval). If a lot also needs a well, then the water table testing takes a bit of planning since it is only done once a year (beginning of every year). This property happens to have city water available.

Per Montgomery County's Department of Permitting Service:

Montgomery County DPS how long does it take to get a building permit for new home construction? 

In addition, you'll need electrical, mechanical, fire protection, etc. permits.
