Dogwood East Bethesda

Not much to say… Update for 8/15/2013. No new listings. Nothing under contract No price drops.

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 17 years. I’ve sold real estate in East Bethesda for over 14 years. It’s a wonderful neighborhood within walking distance of two metro stops AND downtown Bethesda. 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!

The Evers & Co. June 2013 Real Estate Report

said on July 15th, 2013 filed under: State of the Market

Capitol DemocracyWe experienced the highest year-over-year rise in average price so far this year in the month of June, with a 9.2% increase over last year at this time. In addition, days-on-the market were down a whole 41% from last June. The dollar volume of sales was up an encouraging 24%, which should help boost sales, since the shortage of listings has hampered sales in general. Buyer demand is still strong despite the recent rise in interest rates, and we are finally seeing more product in all price ranges on the market.

We are still looking at the same factors for success: properties that are priced correctly and show well are selling quickly, and often, with multiple bids. Unless mortgage interest rates continue to rise this fall, we expect this market to continue right through to next spring.

*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 Virginia.
