Continuing Series About New Homes in Stafford County Priced Under $400,000.Featuring homes in inventory, spec homes ready for immediate delivery in Northern Stafford County.    If you have time to build a new home in Northern Stafford County, there are a number of builders offering spec homes, meaning homes that the Stafford County builder constructed before contracting with a consumer to buy that home.  It is not unusual for large builders to build a home on a lot, knowing that, sooner or later a buyer who needs a home NOW will come along and the home is ready.  The only missing link is the buyer's loan approval and the lender's appraisal.  Easy to accomplish and when we Buyers' Agents have a ready willing and able home buyer, we often search the listings for "inventory" of homes ready...

Now that's a term if ever there was one.First time I ever heard it was when we moved (in 19710) into a community just outside the "beltway" of Washington, DC named Lake Braddock.  It was the first exposure we had to the area and after overcoming "sticker shock" we settled in.Folks, bedroom communities exist fifty miles south of Washington, DC now.  Some as far south as 65 miles!  We are not going to venture that far yet as we explore some of the communities in the vicinity of Fredericksburg Virginia.  This one is in Stafford County Virginia and it is called Leeland Station.  The community derives its name from the Virginia Railway Express station located on Leeland Road.The community of Leeland Station is gifted when it comes to location because it is less than a 10 minute drive to Hist...
