Have you talked to a lender? If not, I can recommend a few for you to talk to and get advise from and they will let you know how much you and your husband can afford. After talking to a lender and finding out how much you can afford, that will give you a better picture of what types of homes you will be able to purchase, be it TH or single family, new construction or not. I wish we had a crystal ball and could tell buyers that buying this home at this price its value will go up in 5 yrs, but we cannot. The DC region overall has been one of the least hit and held its value regions in the nation. Please let me know if you need more assistance.
Give me a call and I will have one of several loan officers I work with get you qualified to purchase a home. Once qualified we can explore areas based on your affordability, schools, commute, etc...
You can also search available homes on my website below.
