east bethesda: Donate your Computer in Bethesda - 10/04/11 06:02 AM
Original Source: Donate Your Computer in Downtown Bethesda
Got a new computer and not sure what to do with the old one? Might I make a suggestion?! Gary Cahn runs RecycleMyComputer which is located in downtown Bethesda right near Bethesda Metro and Safeway. He recycles discarded & unwanted computers (even broken ones), refurbishes them, and donates them to people in need. He's able to do so with a generous grant from OASIS.
RecycleMyComputer will accept Pentium 3 computers 800 mhtz or better. There is generally a sticker on the front of the computer. If the sticker says Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows … (2 comments)

east bethesda: Live Near Bethesda Metro - 03/06/11 08:44 AM
Original Post: Walk to Bethesda Metro
Just about everyone I know wants to live near Bethesda Metro. And it's no surprise. Traffic these days is stupefying. And it's only going to get worse.  Walter Reed is joining forces wtih the National Naval Medical Center at the corner of Jones Bridge and Wisconsin Avenues, adding 2,500 extra employees to an area full of congested roadways.  Sheesh.  Assuming you commute by train, living anywhere along the Red Line can save you time and frustration. There are several lovely neighborhoods near Bethesda Metro, all varying in price and amenities.
Downtown Bethesda has really transformed … (2 comments)

east bethesda: Early Morning Exercise- Bethesda Style - 09/17/10 05:02 AM
Original Source:  East Bethesda Morning Exercise

I’m one of those on again, off again kind of exercisers.  The type that gets side-railed at the simplest excuse – though it’s usually vacations that do me in. Anyway, I’m happy to say that I’m back at it. I’ve recently re-joined Fitness Corps, a group that meets in my neighborhood of East Bethesda (and others) for early morning workouts.  The good thing about getting it over with in the a.m., according to my wise friend Jen, is because it’s like money in the bank.  It allows you to get on with the rest of … (6 comments)

east bethesda: East Bethesda Absorption Rate - 08/21/10 06:26 AM

East Bethesda Absorption Rate
I specialize in selling real estate in East Bethesda.  I've lived in the neighborhood for almost 15 years, raised kids here, and will probably remain in the neighborhood for the foreseeable future.  Because of this, I keep close tabs on the inventory. 
I like to track trends in real estate.  You'll occasionally hear me mention that "we have a 4.5 months supply of homes for sale", which might leave you scratching your head. In a nut shell, I'm referring to the absorption rate, or the calculation of how long it will take for all the homes … (2 comments)

east bethesda: East Bethesda History- Lynbrook Elementary School - 02/08/10 02:49 AM
 
East Bethesda's Lynbrook Elementary School:
During the first week of March in 1940, the Board of Education advertised its intention to buy three acres of land between Maple and Chase Avenues at $3,500 per acre and take an option on seven additional acres at a slightly higher price.  The land was in the area where a small, red plane had crashed the previous spring as the pilot dipped his wings to a friend on Highland Avenue.
In June, the school board accepted the Morrison Brothers bid of $37,100 for the first unit of the school and work began almost immediately … (0 comments)

east bethesda: Way to go, snow! - 02/06/10 08:42 AM
What a day.  Woke up to god knows how many inches of the fluffy stuff.  And spent the day watching more and more and MORE of it come down from the skies.  It's now 5pm and I think it just might be done snowing.  Is that a bit of sun I see?  I hope so.  I do admit to feeling a bit depleted when the weatherman described this storm's snow as the kind that would "turn to concrete" if not immediately shoveled.  Ergh.

Spies in East Bethesda...
Some of you may know Sandy Spagnolo (EBCA's social chairperson and professional organizer), a fiery redhead who has lived on Chestnut Street all her life.  But with all the newcomers in the neighborhood, not many of you remember her grandfather, Art Lundahl. 
Art was born in Chicago in 1915.  He worked for the CIA, and was the founding father of NPIC, the National Photographic Interpretation Center, formed in 1961.  It combined CIA, Army, Navy and Air Force assets to solve national intelligence problems.  It was the NPIC that first identified the basing of missiles in Cuba in 1962.  … (0 comments)

THE STORY OF EAST BETHESDA AND THE EBCA
Early History:  Profile of a Neighborhood
Bethesda has come a long way from the Five Points Indian trial at the East-West Highway/Wisconsin Avenue intersection.  Indian tribes from all over Maryland used to meet as their paths crossed at this point on their way to the river for the fishing season.
The first road was Old Georgetown.  It was a rolling road for tobacco farmers to get their barrels of tobacco (hogsheads) to the ships at Georgetown.
Up until the 1920's, the East Bethesda area where we live was still countryside.  There was a … (0 comments)

east bethesda: Your offer has been accepted... So, now what? Part IV (Title Insurance) - 01/28/10 02:23 AM
Your offer has been accepted... So, now what? Part IV (Title Insurance)
Title insurance is a good thing.  It protects you from claims from others on your new house (and these things do happen).  But it's bloody expensive. 
One way around the expense is to get a "re-issue" rate on title insurance.  If the current owner has been in the house for less than 10 years and they are able to put their hands on the physical title insurance policy, you just might be entitled to a discount. You can save a chunk of change if you are able to explore this route.  Doesn't happen … (1 comments)

Madonna of the Trail
Did you know that our local Madonna of the Trail/Pioneer Mother monument is one of twelve identical statues throughout the US?  The idea behind the monuments can be traced back to a group of Missouri Women, who in 1912 were behind a resolution to Congress giving a formal name to the series of trails used by pioneers as they traveled West.  It was named "National Old Trails Road."  At the urging of then Judge Harry Truman, twelve statues at a cost of $1,000 each were placed in each of the twelve states along the trail. 
In 1927 … (6 comments)

Your offer has been accepted... So, now what?
You've done the legwork and finally found something you can call home.  You make an offer and lo-and-behold, the house/condo/co-op will become yours within a few short weeks (hopefully).  Are you done yet?  Not quite.
In Maryland and the District of Columbia there are still a few things to be done (for the purpose of this article, we're going to assume that you are buying a property that is not in foreclosure or a short sale AND that it's currently free of tenants... that's another story and another post!):

East Bethesda Real Estate Statistics for 2009:
It's time for my annual number crunching.  So, how is East Bethesda real estate faring?  Better than the rest of the region.  Prices are down from last year, roughly 12% regionally and 6.9% within East Bethesda.  And while lower prices are never great for sellers, if you are a move-up buyer, the savings on your new home should more than offset the loss you'll take on your current.  At the time of this writing we have an extremely low inventory of homes for sale (4 houses are available in our neighborhood, ranging in price … (5 comments)
