Most Energy Efficient Home of 2015

Customization Signage

Here at Mid-Atlantic Builders, we pride ourselves on the quality, customization and energy-efficiency of our product. We take the time to find the best products possible and engineer everything that we do to save our customers money and make them as comfortable as possible in their new home.

Mid-Atlantic Builders was recognized by the Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative (SMECO) for building the Most Energy Efficient Home in 2015 at a recent event highlighting the achievements of local builders in Southern Maryland. The recognition was given to one of our homes built in The Villages of Savannah community, which had an estimated savings of 7.4 megawatt-hours (MWh) per year. That translates into saving the customer an estimated $1,000 in annual energy savings!

This serves as a constant reminder to pay attention to the quality of a new home versus the price tag. A new home is a significant long-term investment and eventually the energy bill will show what goes on behind the exterior façade.

We are honored that SMECO would recognize us with such a prestigious award and are humbled by the recognition of our product. For a detailed look at our Energy$mart program, visit us on our website and see all of the ways that Mid-Atlantic Builders can help our customers build not only a beautiful house on the outside, but on the inside as well.

Remembering Memorial Day

Flags on houses_2

Most people associate Memorial Day with the beginning of summer vacation, a day off of work, backyard barbecues and celebrations with family and friends. We must remember that Memorial Day is a special day to honor our veterans who served in the US Armed Forces. The holiday began after the Civil War, and was originally named “Decoration Day.” While initially founded to honor the soldiers who died in the Civil War, today Memorial Day honors all Americans who have served or died in military service.

Many of us living in the Washington, D.C. area have deep connections to the military.  We all know someone who has honorably served our country overseas in uniform. Today we take a moment to remember all those who we have lost, and to be grateful for the sacrifice that they made for the good of America as a whole.  We at Mid-Atlantic Builders and everyone throughout the country are deeply appreciative.

On behalf of the entire Mid-Atlantic Builders’ family, we would like to take a moment to remember the brave members of our armed forces who had their lives cut short in an effort to protect our country. Thank you and Happy Memorial Day!

As a new home builder we pride ourselves on our architecture and customization, but all would be lost if our models were nothing but empty rooms with white walls.

This home features a gorgeous open concept Gourmet Kitchen and Family Room while also maintaining a traditional formal Living and Dining Room. The cascading front staircase is an enchanting spectacle upon entering the home.

Upstairs, the Owner’s Suite, with tray ceiling, features a luxurious Spa Bath, two large walk-in closets and an optional Sitting Room.  Three spacious bedrooms and laundry room complete the second floor.

Kick Clutter to the Curb

Realtors, direct marketing or even word of mouth are just a few effective ways of selling your home. All of these, however, are essentially rendered useless if your home is unorganized and cluttered.

The most cost-effective way to prepare a home for sale is to clean it up! Erasing the mess helps prospects see the largest square footage, the best attributes of the home, and lets them picture living there themselves.

Here are the best tips to get your house staged and ready for sale:

  1. Don’t get overwhelmed; start small. Organizing your entire house can be daunting at times, but it’s important to take your time and get the process started. Start with a junk drawer then move to that forgotten spare bedroom with all of the armoires.
  2. Make the time. It hardly sounds appealing after working all week to spend your free time cleaning out old closets. However, if you block out even 2-4 hours per weekend, it will take the burden of completing this huge task and break it into more obtainable objectives.
  3. Put it in its place. Clutter happens most often when items in your home do not have a proper place. If you cannot find a proper place for something, chances are you don’t need it. Evaluate its purpose and continue on your mission.
  4. Setting the stage. Once you’ve cleared out the clutter, it’s time to show off your home. While it may be difficult, emotionally, removing family photos and magnets from the fridge will give your home a clean look and allow potential buyers to visualize themselves in the space. Arrange furniture in a precise, simple way that shows off the space tactfully.
