Just SOLD on Ednor Road in 20905 Silver Spring, MD
Vintage gem for under 400K!
This darling home was on the market just hours when a first offer was received and under contract so quickly that I did not even get the chance to blog about it. This property had been in the same family for decades, had been meticulously cared for and filled with lots of happy memories and laughter!

andrea bedard realtor silver spring: 12 years later... - 09/20/17 01:51 PM
A few days ago a name popped up on my caller ID that made me instantly think back 12 years to 2005. You remember that time when we had to wait in line to see a home or listings sold before we even had the chance to schedule an appointment? In many ways, today is similar but not quite.. buyers (in general) are more comfortable waiting for the perfect gem and sticking to their need-list vs. jumping on any house just to get a house. But I'm digressing...
12 years ago I helped this caller buy his very first home, a 2 … (10 comments)

andrea bedard realtor silver spring: Spring Has SPRUNG in Maryland Real Estate! - 03/10/16 10:40 AM
Thinking about buying in Silver Spring, MD and beyond this Spring? Then one of your first steps should be to talk to a lender - before you add listings to your favorite list and/or visit open houses!
Falling in love with a home before you know if you can afford it, could end up being one big disappointement because either you'll find out that the house is out of your price-range or it may already be under contract by the time you have your preapproval in hand.


We are seeing multiple offers on … (3 comments)

I have much to be thankful for and I am aware of that 365 days every year. Last year I shared our "Gratitude Turkeys" my daughters and I crafted. It was a great way to talk about and reflect on the meaning of Thanksgiving and all the "things" that give our life meaning.
This year, I would like to share the 5 "things" that I am most thankful for that impact my business on a daily basis - inspired by Happy Grasshopper and Active Rain.
While jotting down my list, I quickly noticed that most of the "things" I am thankful for that impact … (5 comments)

andrea bedard realtor silver spring: Dear Mr. Anonymous ... - 08/17/14 12:34 PM
While I was out showing homes in Silver Spring, MD yesterday, my phone rang. That, of course, is nothing spectacular to blog about. That's what phones do, ring, peep ... vibrate. As soon as I can, I return all calls and respond to messages unless the caller has his/her number blocked.
And that's what happened yesterday. Usually that's a sign of a sales call and I don't worry about it but not so yesterday. The caller actually left a very nice message - the voice sounded a bit familiar but not enough to know who it was - and asked me … (12 comments)
