said on July 31st, 2015 filed under: Bethesda, Homes for Sale

IMG_3564Update for 7/31/15. Two new listings. One under contract (hint: they were asking over $3-million). One price reduction.

All the homes in this article are currently for sale within East Bethesda. The top of the list features the newest listings, while the bottom showcases those that have been on the market for quite some time. I’ll be updating this post every Friday, so be sure to check back to see what’s new, what’s gone, & what might be coming (and check out the date up top… if it’s not current, neither is this information!). I’ve lived in East Bethesda for over 19 years. I’ve sold real estate in East Bethesda for over 15 years. It’s a wonderful neighborhood within walking distance of Bethesda Metro AND NIH/Walter Reed. While all of this information is available to you on the various search engines (and please keep in mind that these are not all of my own listings), I’ve taken the time to inject my opinion on the condition, pricing, and likelihood of each property selling… or not. I hope you’ll give me a call if you have any questions. I have loved living here over the years, and I want to share it with other enthusiastic people!

Tomato Love

said on July 23rd, 2015 filed under: Just For Fun

Tom-a-to, Tom-ah-toI love summer and the tomatoes that come with it. My husband doesn’t like tomatoes. I still can’t figure that one out.

I’ve just discovered that there are two tomato festivals coming up in Maryland. Yahoo!

One is in Carroll County on August 22, focusing specifically on heirloom tomatoes. This one is put on by the Master Gardner folks. Click here for more information.

And for those of you with a bellicose side, the Great Eastern Shore Tomato Festival is also being held on August 22. Click here for details. They brag about “Tomato Wars” and food fights, so wear your favorite apparel at your peril!

Enjoy!

The Evers & Co. June 2015 Real Estate Report

said on July 14th, 2015 filed under: State of the Market

bigstock-Warm-afternoon-light-at-the-fa-19280741In June 2015, the close-in Metro areas marketplace saw an 11.4% increase in dollar volume of sales, and for the second month in a row, most of it occurred in Fairfax County and Montgomery County. Even though these areas have bigger populations and much more real estate on the market than Washington, DC, they have trailed the District all year, and now they are finally experiencing some catching up.

None of this changes what everyone in real estate knows about this year: no matter where your property is located, price is king, and if you want to get your property sold, price it right. The second most important thing is to make sure your property looks its best when you put it on the market. The first impression buyers have of price and presentation is by far the most influential.

*Statistics are taken from the Metropolitan Regional Information System for three areas: Washington, D.C., Montgomery County, Maryland; and Fairfax County, Arlington and Alexandria in Northern Virginia.
