Business Costs

Charles County is an easy sell to companies seeking hard facts on costs:

People

Whether they’re advancing health care, research, or retail sales, our labor pool is diverse and driven. Reasonably-priced homes, an excellent quality of life, and solid schools incentivize residents to work where they live.

Proximity

Establishing a business 30 minutes from DC yields prime partnership opportunities. All regional federal and military installations lie within a 40-mile radius of Waldorf. At Naval Support Facilities Indian Head and Dahlgren, research and development collaborations abound in our very own backyard.

Places

Retail, commercial, and office leases are 20-40 percent more affordable than comparable spaces in the DC metro area. Low real estate taxes and utility costs sweeten the savings. View our Property Finder here.

Perks

Charles County participates in the Property Assessed Clean Energy Program (PACE) program for Maryland businesses. This allows the cost of energy improvements to be tied to the commercial building over an extended term for more advantageous financing. PACE is an affordable way to incorporate clean energy features in new or existing commercial structures. Learn more about Charles County business incentives here.

Partnerships

The College of Southern Maryland (CSM) offers budget-friendly employee training, education, and entrepreneurship support that deliver real-time results.

 

Leases are 20-40% lower than comparable spaces in the DC metro area.
