Germantown began in the early 1800s as a small business center peopled mostly by German immigrants. In the 1960s, however, the completion of I-270 kicked off a period of significant growth for Germantown real estate. Today, Germantown real estate remains unincorporated, though it makes up one of the largest communities in Montgomery County. One of the community’s biggest attractions is the Germantown Town Center. Located along Century Boulevard, this mixed-use development is home to many popular restaurants and businesses frequented by Germantown real estate owners and visitors alike.

Many commuters are attracted to Germantown real estate, which is served by the Germantown Transit Center bus service, the Shady Grove station on Metro’s red line, and Montgomery County’s Ride On bus service. Germantown real estate owners also benefit from the county’s excellent schools. In addition, Germantown real estate prices are slightly lower than the county average.
