bethesda real estate: There are two types of people... - 08/07/19 11:18 PM
At a recent final walk-through of a home, one of my buyer clients, who worked as a mover during college, made this observation. He said, 
 
"There are two kinds of people in this world - the kind who take all of their toilet paper when they move out, and the kind who leave toilet paper for the buyers."
 
He was happy to report that they are buying a home from sellers who are the latter. And just look at the cute flowers they made on a roll they left. Little things can mean alot. 
What type of people are your sellers?

bethesda real estate: How long will it take and how much will I get for my Bethesda home? - 12/10/17 06:37 AM
Thinking about selling your Bethesda home?
If you're like me and live in Bethesda, Maryland, you may be curious about how much your home is worth, how long it will take to sell, and how much you will have to do or spend to get your home sold. 
As an experienced real estate professional, I have the answers to your questions. I begin by looking at the data. 
 
Let's start with the competition by looking at Inventory
Take a look at the Inventory chart below which calculates the amount of homes on the market based on how long they take to sell. The black indicator shows the number … (1 comments)

bethesda real estate: Thankful for the Wonderful Walking Women - 11/27/17 09:02 AM
I live in an amazing neighborhood.
There are so many great things about living in Charred Oak Estates, a tree-lined neighborhood in West Bethesda. I was first attracted to this neighborhood by the large wooded lots. The winding roads, the circles and the hills were also appealing. In the spring, when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom, the neighborhood looks and smells fantastic. 
The schools have very high ratings, it's convenient to a handful of grocery stores and shopping areas and you can get into Washington DC, or Virginia, or anywhere on the beltway easily. 
The thing I am most thankful for when it … (1 comments)

bethesda real estate: Charred Oak Estates Market Report - July 2017 - 09/07/17 09:47 AM
Charred Oak Estates Market Report
Bethesda, MD
July 2017
 
 
Curious about what's going on with real estate in Charred Oak Estates?
 
Let's look at the July numbers:

As you can see from the charts, the numbers of Sold and Pending properties this July were three times the 5-year average for July while the number of Active Listings was equal to the 5-year average.
 

July's inventory of homes for sale was a bit higher than the 5-year average with a 3 month inventory on the market. The number of new listings entering the market in July 2017 is a bit below the 5-year average.

bethesda real estate: Dog Oasis in Bethesda, Maryland - 08/08/14 04:33 AM
Bethesda Maryland has it's Own Dog Oasis
Have you seen it?
 
I was walking to lunch with a co-worker today and saw something up ahead. It was next to a restaurant that I recently reviewed on my website in a post titled, Eating in Bethesda - Tia Queta Restaurant.
On the way back from lunch I got a better look. I had to get closer to see the sign.
 
It said:
Dog Oasis
Tia Queta
 
There was a pan full of water below and a tropical plant above. I hadn't thought about a restaurant being dog-friendly, but Tia Queta … (4 comments)

bethesda real estate: Have you seen one of these yet? - 04/11/14 02:39 AM
Have you seen one of these yet?
As an exclusive buyer's agent, I spend a lot of my time driving around residential neighborhoods. Whether I'm showing homes to clients or previewing for them, a lot of my mileage each year is in the 15-35 MPH range. I try to enjoy my time in neighborhoods observing the landscaping projects that people have installed, checking out the new construction in progress, and enjoying the bright and beautiful flowering plants that are just starting to bloom. Each neighborhood has its own special features that make it different from its next door neighborhoods. 
A few months … (60 comments)

bethesda real estate: Cup of Joe Report - Tout de Sweet in Bethesda, MD - 12/04/13 01:03 AM
Cup of Joe Report - Tout de Sweet Pastry Shop in Bethesda, Maryland
I've been driving a different way to work each morning, passing the ever-changing commerical spaces and trying to get a feel for the types of businesses that will be coming to Bethesda. There are several lunch shops and stores that are walkable from the metro, but there are a few types of businesses that I'm hoping to discover a bit further away. Especially a good coffee shop. 
Fortunately, Susan, an agent in my old office introduced me to a wonderful coffee shop in Downtown Bethesda. It's called Tout de Sweet Pastry … (7 comments)

bethesda real estate: Mani-Pedi Mania - Competition in Bethesda, Maryland! - 09/06/13 03:18 AM
Mani-Pedi Mania has come to Bethesda Maryland!
For many years, a very popular nail salon in downtown Bethesda has been the go-to spot for manicures and pedicures. Every time I've been to Sandy Nails, I've run into someone I know. They offer reduced prices for children and teenagers and they are always very busy. They have never accepted credit cards, but they have installed ATM machines in the back of the store to accommodate the people who show up without cash. And they are located right near the public parking garage. 
The other day I drove down Old Georgetown Road … (4 comments)

bethesda real estate: Gas by Zip Code - 05/23/08 03:08 AM
I received this info in an email and thought I would share it with my fellow agents. Driving clients to see homes has become very expensive. Maybe this will help.
