Given the current housing market with good inventory, you might do well to look at existing homes that are very new...i.e., less than 3 years old. This one, for example, is almost new, located in a pretty Elkridge neighborhood close to everything, including schools, and is comprised mostly of families with young children.

There are a number of other communities in the 21042, 21043, and 21075 other than those mentioned in earlier responses by real estate professionals. Hamilton Reed has Tyson Hills (new), Stone Manor, and Margarets Fancy; Dorsey Family Homes has Stone Manor, Margarets Fancy, and Frederick Overlook; Trinity Homes has St Johns Point, The Vineyards, and Southview; Lennar has Forest Creek; Camberley Homes has Riverwook; Williamsburg Builders has Sheppards Manor (with a recent large price reduction); Toll Brother has Patuxent Chase; Grayson Homes has Chesnut Crest; Pritchett Family Homes has Timber Ridge; and 40 West Builders has Palmer Ridge and a new development, Taylor Preserve in Waverley.

Depending on your budget there are many choices. It is impossible to say what is the best for you.

For 21043:

1. Winchester Homes is building in Nottingham Acres. They are amazing homes and the most expensive you can build, but probably the nicest.

2. Richmond American Homes still may have some lots left in Taylor Village and more will be coming soon. Taylor Village is a great location and offers many amenities such as a swimming pool, gym, tennis, village center, shopping and restaurants. Taylor Village is still growing and will have more phases.

3. K Hovanian Homes are building 110 homes in Ellicott City in Cider Mill. It is shaping up to be a great community with gorgeous homes to choose from.

4. Dorsey Family Homes also has a few different communities in 21043 and 21042. They are smaller, custom home builders.

There isn't a lot construction in 21042 Ellicott City, except for a few spot lots here and there.

For 21075 Elkridge, your best bet is Richmond American Homes.

These are just a few different choices off the top of my head. There are others. If you would like more info about any, contact me anytime.
