Bethesda Residents of All Ages Enjoy a High Quality of Life

The laid-back suburb of Bethesda, Maryland, is named one of the Best Places to Live by various sources year after year. It adjoins its smaller sister city, Chevy Chase, and is centrally located near the popular metropolitan areas of Georgetown, Silver Springs, and Washington, D.C. Neighborhoods include Wisconsin North, Wisconsin South, Bethesda West, Woodmont Triangle, and Downtown Bethesda.

Bethesda draws a healthy blend of individuals, including long-time residents, commuters, and foreign dignitaries. With roughly 65,000 residents, it’s known for its educated class. More than 83.5% of its residents have at least a bachelor’s degree. With such an emphasis on academics, Bethesda has become a family-friendly locale with excellent schools.

Residents can also enjoy cultural activities such as live theater, concerts, museums, and farmers’ markets. Additionally, its parks and paved trails offer recreation for joggers, walkers, and cyclists.

The Proven Paradigm Process

Years of experience lead to more effective planning, which is the case in the development of the proven Paradigm Process. We have developed countless projects with various styles and sizes using a six-point system. These points include the introduction meeting, design stage, pre-construction stage, building phase, move-in stage, and post-building phase.

Whether you want to build up or out, add rooms or improve the interior design, our process will keep our team on track within a pre-approved timeline. It also establishes the project budget and maintains transparency for clients from ideation to reality.


The Paradigm team has the expertise, network and creative strategy to construct your forever home. Below are some of our most often asked questions:

Bethesda has a higher cost of living than most cities in the United States. Therefore pricing will be higher for clients who choose to build in this charming locale. For reference, the median sale price for a home in Bethesda is $1,429,000. When working with our clients, we maintain truth and integrity in discussing goals and determining an approximate project cost. 

The cost to build a home varies based on numerous factors, including size, design, materials used, neighborhood, and contractors selected. In the introduction meeting, we take these factors into account before developing a quote.

It takes on average between six and nine months to build a home, though smaller homes may be completed in less time. The timeline for building homes in Bethesda varies according to the size and design of each property.

While you may think that working with an architect beforehand gives you a head start on building the house of your dreams, it may actually deter the process. Building a home requires many moving pieces and teamwork from various industry professionals. Therefore we recommend to all of our clients working with a design-build firm. Paradigm Homes has a slate of well-established, highly-skilled architects, designers, and Bethesda home builders to sketch, design, and build a project to completion.
