MacRo Announces Sale of Spec House in Thurmont, Maryland

MacRo is pleased to announce the sale of a “spec house” in Thurmont, Maryland.

The property Spec House Thurmont MDsold is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house on 0.8 acres, located on Creagerstown Road in Thurmont.  This sale is significant because it involved a “spec house” – a speculative venture with no buyer lined up when construction started.  Since the real estate turn-down of 2007, the construction of spec houses has been quite uncommon.  Although regional/national builders continue to build a few spec houses in large subdivisions each year, smaller/local builders have basically stopped due to the uncertainty of when it will sell, and how much it will sell for.

Could spec houses be making a comeback soon?  Time will tell, but this sale is certainly encouraging.

This house was built as a joint venture between the lot owner and Hemby Custom Homes.  The sale price was $330,000.  Dave Wilkinson represented the Seller in this transaction.
