A look at the Single Family Homes in Bethesda
If you are looking for the median price of single family homes in the Bethesda neighborhoods, this chart will appeal to you. It's a self updating chart, so no matter when you happen to find this post, it will always have the most current look at the last 12 months.
The three zip codes in Bethesda, 20814, 20816, 20817, all have a wide variety of housing choices and prices. Many of the areas in the city have neighborhoods where the old style housing has been eclipsed by newer construction. The median … (1 comments)

homes for sale bethesda: The Plight of the Condos - 06/24/10 03:56 AM
I recently had this breeze of a sale. We had scouted out every condo for sale in Bethesda and settled on Crescent Plaza, right in the heart of downtown Bethesda as a new investment condo. Price was fantastic. Sellers found a place to live fairly quickly. Listing agent was a dream to work with.... 
Enter havoc. About 10 days before settlement the lender, a Credit Union, sent a note that sent chills down my spine. Unwarrantable condo. Investor ratios are off, self managed and not enough in reserves. We had already asked these questions to ensure that the investor ratios would … (0 comments)

homes for sale bethesda: 4620 Bayard Blvd MC7332902- Preview of Bethesda Homes for Sale - 05/11/10 04:05 PM
I personally preview every home for sale in Crestview so that when buyers are looking for homes with certain features I know right away what might work well for them. Because I see so many of the listings in the area I can also help sellers understand why one home might have commanded more than another. While we can look at many, many pictures of homes on line there is nothing like being physically present in a house to understand how it will work as someone’s home.
If you would like me to put my neighborhood expertise and experience for real … (0 comments)

homes for sale bethesda: Financing Contingency - Let it Ride! - 05/11/10 04:02 PM
I had a recent discussion with another broker about financing contingencies for a home for sale in Bethesda.  It makes me realize how little understanding there is about this vital part of the contract. She was clearing the contingency upon the 30 day end.  No!
Here is the language:
C. FINANCING (Must Select Option 1 or 2) Not to be used with Seller Financing
Option (1) This Contract is contingent on Purchaser obtaining approval for loan(s) to purchase the Property.  This Contract is contingent until 9 p.m. ____ Days after Date of Ratification (“Financing Deadline”) upon Purchaser Delivering Notice to Seller … (3 comments)

homes for sale bethesda: How Dare You Put My Seller on Page One of Google! - 04/22/10 10:26 AM
I got a phone call the other day from a highly incensed real estate agent. She was just spitting mad because she had spent $1000 on marketing costs and she just found out that my blog was showing her Westmoreland Hills home for sale at the top of page one. She was "offended" that I would have her listing on my IDX site and not have her name plastered all over it.
For the record, our MLS rules require that the brokerage name only be listed on any IDX site but not the listing agent. MRIS never brands the tours or … (132 comments)

homes for sale bethesda: Bethesda Closing Costs - 04/06/10 03:09 PM
Closing costs.  We use this term to lump together all the different sums of money that are necessary at the end of a real estate transaction for a home sold in Bethesda, or anywhere in the surrounding area.  Closing costs can add up to an additional 3% in funds you'll need to bring to closing so it's important to understand what they are and how much each component costs.  
I use a spreadsheet to help understand an estimate of what those costs will be.  Your lender will do a Good Faith Estimate when you've found an actual home to buy … (0 comments)

Bethesda's luxury  properties as well as all homes for sale are located throughout this zip code and I  track the statistics in each of those markets and publish weekly summaries.  For a more in depth look contact me to be emailed my executive summary outlining the trends and statistics in key zipcodes.
Average days on market in Bethesda are a key indicator of the saturation of inventory in the market.  When the days on market are short there is likely price increases and competition among buyers for homes for sale in Bethesda.  Conversely if the days on market are longer … (1 comments)
