real estate agent bethesda: I Was Just Thanked by the Agent Whose Buyer Didn't Get the House... - 03/12/10 02:04 AM
Why?
Because I knew the home was attracting enormous attention and would both get more than one offer and go over the asking price.  As a result I gave the process some time - 4 days from the Sunday open house to get offers into us.
Four buyers did pre inspections as a result.  Many others came through and viewed the house more than once, had the time to get their lending solidly in place and were comfortable with what they were buying.
The resulting contracts were clean, contingency free and each agent was allowed to present his/her client's offer in … (10 comments)

real estate agent bethesda: Do You Want to Negotiate or Buy a House? - 01/26/08 03:42 AM
(BETHESDA REAL ESTATE)
Some folks are just great negotiators.  That's a good thing, right?  We all want to get the best deal possible and feel like we won.  Depending on the circumstances, you can negotiate yourself right out of a home with this strategy though.  I know. I've been through it often enough lately...
Here's how the conversation goes:
Client:  I am going to want to really negotiate for this and get the best deal.
Me:  That's great.  What area are you looking in and what kind of price range?
Client:  I'd like something in new construction in Cabin John for under $950K
Me:  You realize there … (34 comments)

real estate agent bethesda: Montgomery County Real Estate >> Active Listings vs Sales Graph - 01/15/08 09:10 AM
Montgomery County MD Trends - Listings vs Sales AnalysisThe story seems to be same: inventory is up and sales are down!  This is a good visual that shows just how wide the margin is.  I am trying to get the historical data for listings in Montgomery County out of our MLS system so I can show the difference between the seller's market years and today.  You can already see the convergence at the 2005 end where there was far less disparity between what was available vs what was selling.  The numbers this chart represents are:
2007 Listings = 64,744 2006 Listings = 52,605 Up … (0 comments)

Single Family Homes Sold in November 2007 - Bethesda, MD (Montgomery County) 20816  
The last four houses on the list are all rebuilt homes and that upper bracket is helping to drive the median and average price up to the highest median price change we've seen all year.  The low sale of $495,00 is one of two this year at that price range - cute little, and I mean little, ramblers with one or two bedrooms.  But for someone who likes the area and its proxmity to downtown Friendship Heights, it's better than a condo!  The lot is very small … (0 comments)

What Does it Mean?
The neighborhoods covered by this report are:
Fairway HillsGlen Mar ParkWestmoreland HillsMaybe they all took Christmas off this year??  Last month I wondered if the price increase would be maintained over December and it looks like it didn't...  Almost every number is down including days on market which are cut in half from last year.  If you notice, though, they are getting more as a % of their sales price this year as compared to last year.  With the exception of Boxwood, everything sold … (0 comments)

Single Family Homes Sold in August, 2007 - Bethesda, MD (Montgomery County) 20816
What does it mean?
Even though it's only 4 fewer sales than last year at this time, it's part of the trend for Bethesda real estate this year that homes sold and sales volume are down significantly in many months.  The average sold price is down 6% but the median is up 2% (a trend that has held through the entire year with the median increasing year over year in every month of 2007).
The discount is the % of the original list price the seller got when the home sold.  On average … (4 comments)

real estate agent bethesda: Bethesda - Woodmont East Development Project - 11/02/07 07:20 AM
(BETHESDA REAL ESTATE) The Montgomery County Planning Board denied a request this week that would have turned a proposed mixed use retail space into an open green space.  The proposal is at the corner of Woodmont and Bethesda Avenue where there is currently a much used parking lot.  Apparently three local groups submitted an application to keep this site in the Legacy Open Space program but the request was turned down since there is adequate green space close enough for trail users and downtown visitors to access.
That's a tough call.  Open space downtown keeps a flavor that encourages a neighborly gathering … (2 comments)
