said on October 10th, 2014 filed under: Bethesda, Homes for Sale

flowersUpdate for 10/10/14. Nothing happening, but for an increase in days on the market.  

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!

Real Estate Jargon Explained

said on October 5th, 2014 filed under: Information for Buyers

bigstock-The-house-in-human-hands-17016914Since most of us only buy real estate once or twice in our lifetime, the lingo can change along the way.  Here are a few terms explained:

MLS- Multiple Listing Service.  What’s that, you ask? This group gathers listing information from local real estate agents and joins them together to create one cohesive list of properties available for sale. It operates in “real time”, as opposed to some of the “feeder” sites like Zillow and Trulia where information can be delayed.

DOM- this one is simple. Days On Market.  In our current marketplace, if a home has been on the market for over 15-30 days, chances are it started off too high, or there’s something a little off.

Pre-Approval Letter- it’s what you want from the bank, at a minimum, when shopping for a home. It’s a document Read the rest of this entry »

Drug Take Back Day 9/27/14

said on September 24th, 2014 filed under: Bethesda, Chevy Chase, District of Columbia

DEA Drug Take-Back DayOn September 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. police departments and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from Read the rest of this entry »

The Evers & Co. August 2014 Real Estate Report

said on September 18th, 2014 filed under: State of the Market

The US Capitol in Washington DC. vector illustration In August 2014, the Northern Virginia suburbs fared the best price-wise with a 5.2% increase in price, with the rest of the numbers for August level with last year or slightly below. Since we have been seeing flat numbers for a few months running, it is useful to take a look at the whole year-to-date and see what has transpired.

In the close-in Metro area, Washington, D.C. is the star so far this year, with a 6.3% rise in average price over the first eight months of last year. In addition, while Montgomery County, Fairfax County, Arlington and Alexandria had only 90-95% dollar volume of sales in 2014 compared to 2013, the District of Columbia did 10% better in 2014 over 2013! This may well be due to the city’s growing popularity as a place to live, but it is also a reflection of homebuyers’ increasing concerns about having to spend too much time driving to work, schools and stores, so that Metro access and walkability have become a top goal for buyers.

*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.
