If you're looking for a new house in Potomac, this is the list for you. Never considered it? You might want to rethink! Potomac has much to offer and one of these homes could be exactly the one for you.
Is Potomac a good place to live?
Absolutely! Niche.com gives Potomac an overall A+ grade and ranks it a #3 Best Place in Maryland. One reason? The low crime rate. Neighborhood Scout gives Potomac a score of 81—meaning that it’s safer than 81% of U.S. cities. Additionally, there are numerous parks and places to hike nearby. The majority of residents own their homes, and if you work in Washington D.C., your commute is around half an hour.
Potomac may not be for you if you’re looking for a true city feel. The population here is around 46,000, and it’s densely suburban. There are great restaurants, a strong appreciation of the arts, and a great investment in historical preservation—but if you’re looking for heart-pounding nightlife, we recommend Downtown Bethesda instead.
Potomac’s cost of living is on the high side. According to Best Places, the cost of living here is 92.3% higher than the U.S. average. The median home price in Potomac is $1,284,582 compared to the U.S. median value of $356,026. On the upside, the median household income in Potomac is approximately 239% higher than the U.S. overall—$181,385 compared to $53,482.
What’s the housing market like in Potomac?
Potomac is in a seller’s market, meaning that houses stay on the market for a short time and often sell for over their asking price. The market has been this way for several years—but recent changes indicate a shift toward a more buyer-friendly environment. The average time a home spends on the market has been steadily rising since its lowest point in 2022—from six days in May to 30 in August. The median sale price has also dropped around $40,000 since June, and the number of homes experiencing price reductions is up nearly 23% since April.
What does that mean? If you’ve been thinking about buying a home in Potomac, now is a great time.
