Real Estate in Bowie

The real estate market in Bowie is made up of mainly single-family homes, with some townhomes for sale. Here you'll find a mixture of bungalows and multi-story properties, typically constructed in a Colonial architectural style, or a one that has been heavily influenced by such.


As the population of Bowie has seen an increase in the past two decades, there are a number of new construction homes in this city, especially with dates within the past five years. Although these homes are newer, they still maintain the same Colonial exterior as older properties, and fit in quiet nicely because of this. Many of the homes full under the luxury price point, on large lots with huge front and back yards. These neighborhoods are very exclusive and desirable for their big, beautiful homes that offer a lot of privacy... perfect for those with families.


While red brick is a common feature of homes in Bowie, vinyl siding and traditional architecture is also a popular choice. Some of the newer homes mix these two materials together nicely, and the result is a unique house with a lot of charm. 


Of course, while interiors vary from home to home, there are a few features that are found in many of the properties in Bowie. Open-concept floor plans, large windows, updated kitchens and bathrooms, and fireplaces are relatively common in this area. As well, long driveways and multiple-car garages are pretty standard, especially for the luxury homes for sale.
