lise howe group: A Great Place in Bethesda to Walk Your Dog - The C&O Canal - 10/03/17 05:05 AM
Where is a great place in Bethesda to walk your dog? The C&O Canal is a perfect place to walk with your dog! This is a beautiful time of the year - the days are warm but not hot and the nights are cooling down.  Sunday was a perfect fall day and it made me want to take a long walk with my standard poodle, Poirot.   It is harder and harder to find places that are easy to enjoy with a big dog. 
Downtown Bethesda is okay, but the sidewalks are crowded with baby strollers and lots of people and a good … (4 comments)

7018 Longwood Drive
Bethesda MD 20817
Bethesda is home to many famous people - politicians, diplomats and businessmen. There also are a number of famous authors who call Bethesda home.  Bethesda sadly has lost one of its most famous authors, William Peter Blatty, a Bethesda native who wrote "The Exorcist."
Following Blatty's death in January, his family has decided to put their home on the market.  The house was built in 1988 and has four levels, an indoor pool and sauna, and six bedrooms, five full baths and two half baths.  It is listed by Washington Fine Properties for $3.195.  The Blatty family has owned … (11 comments)

For dog lovers like me, one of the best parts of an outdoor patio. is the chance to bring your pup along for an evening out on the town.  My husband and I have dinner with Poirot as company.  We have a glass of wine and some food and he has a bowl of water and a hamburger - hold the bun!  Given that when we leave him home he terrorizes the pantry, forcing it to give up chocolate bars that I never even kenw we had (like 70% dark chocolate Valrhona bars), it is cheaper to bring him along and … (9 comments)

Because it's quiet and set in green space!

lise howe group: The Lise Howe Group and Thoughts on Pricing - 09/12/17 06:47 PM
I talk with my sellers about how they should price their homes, based on a review of five recent sales, five current listings and five homes around their home that have not sold (expired or withdrawn).  Assuming that the market is flat or trending downward, the five homes which have expired or been withdrawn demonstrate the ceiling above which they cannot go in pricing their home.  The solds demonstrate the floor below which they need not go (if the market is level or trending upward. )
This analysis is called the 5-5-5  rule - and I think that I actually learned it from Ben Kinney. … (12 comments)
