East Bethesda MD 20814 Homes for Sale 12/6/13

said on December 6th, 2013 filed under: Bethesda

rainy weatherUpdate for 12/6/2013. One new listing, but it went under contract within 2 hours of posting it (including a picture, anyway)! A couple of price reductions. That’s it. 

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 18 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!

Drain those outdoor spigots!

said on November 23rd, 2013 filed under: District of Columbia

spigotTemperatures in the DC area are supposed to drop into the low 20′s tonight. In order to avoid burst water pipes, it’s important that you winterize your outdoor water faucets.

First off, disconnect any garden hoses from the outdoor faucet.

Next, turn off the water to the faucet from the inside of the house. Turn clock-wise to shut off.  There will also be a small cap that allows extra water within the pipe to drain. Put a small bucket underneath to capture the water.

Finally, open up the outdoor spigot and drain it of any excess water. When it’s dry, close it up again.
