You should speak with your Buyer's Agent about this. If you don't have one, you should hire one. Questions like these (among many other things) is why you should have a Buyer's Agent experienced in Brambleton/Eastern Loudoun County as well as new construction/builders.

Van Metre has 2 communites they are building in Brambleton and they do offer floor plans with main level offices.
Although Lenar is slightly further away from the proposed Metro stop, the slight difference in proximity would not make a huge difference in how the home appreciates. Both communites are in good locations in that regard although the 2 Van Meter communites are slightly closer
A true ingress/egress from the basement is a big resale issue.
I am very familiar with the new construction and resale market in Brambleton and other parts of Ashburn. Please give me a call so we can talk further..
You're trying to have answered a very complex question that plagues many buyers - "what will add more resale value?". Very simply said, for every buyer out there who may consider any one home, there will be differing opinions on preferences. But ask yourself what is of more value to YOUR family since you will be occupying the home for potentially 10 years.
Excellent point raised below - if you had to choose - I would opt for the structural option now and add the bath later if desired.
All the best!

Actually I liked both the houses even though both of them has its pros and cons. So that is where I m thinking about the home appreciation value for future.
And also I want to add that the single family home I saw in Vanmeter is almost 2900 sqft where as in Martin chase is 2700 sq.ft. But the lot size in Lennar is bigger than the lot size in VanMeter.
And I also want to specify that Brambleton is close to metro and shopping areas where as Martin chase is about 1 â€“ 1.5 mile interior.
Any more suggestions or advices are greatly appreciated.
I will compare it with nice to have v/s necessity. I fee study room and additional bathroom are necessity versus walkout basement is nice to have. As you are also going to live in the property if i were you first i will think it as a living perspective what you like first, what i meant to say i will first think 65% as living perspective and 35% as investment perspective. What if someone gives you deal of $50K but you don't like to live inside at all or you don't like the house for xyz reason. If market goes up both will appreciate there is no question asked.

Also, it is highly recommended that you have a buyers agent represent you and your interest in the transaction to make your interest are covered and represented. Having a buyers agent represent you since the builder has built that price into their sales price.
Please let me know if you need any further help.
A walk out basement is a very nice option and makes the basement light and bright but in many cases the home has to be configured into a hill for the walk-out to work, rendering the lot somewhat sloped and useless.
Having a walkout is a huge deciding factor for many buyers. And it is not someting that you can change down the road or add later. You can always add a bath or finish the lower level. So many factors play in the appreciation of a home down the road. So on that note it is wise to have the assistance of a Realtor even when dealing with new home construction. You need someone who will advise and protect you in this process and that is solely working for your benefit. Good luck and please feel free to contact us to discuss further.
