I personally preview every listing in this area 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.

5209 Sangamore Road - $649,000
I have been previewing a lot of Bethesda homes for sale this week. This house had gone under contract quickly when it first came on but the buyer backed out - sounds like cold feet.
Too bad. This house is adorable and in great shape and will be a terrific house for someone who doesn't need a ton of space but wants what this area has to offer especially at such a good price. I don't expect it will last long...
It is a small house but for the price it gets you into the Wood Acres school district and into a house that has a decent amount of space you can use. There is potential for a third bedroom in the lower level and with the full bath down there it makes it an easy usage.
There is very little on the market in this price range - only two homes under $700,000 if you are looking for the Wood Acres school district.
The median in Glen Mar Park for 2009 was $729,500. So even with the discount for the busier street, this is still very well priced house!
Location is really superb, even though it is on Sangamore. There is quick access to two shopping centers with Giant and Safeway, Starbucks galore, The Trail, a bus stop steps away and a school system that is highly regarded and one of the main reasons property in this zip code is priced where it is.
If you are interested in what kind of offer to make for this home, contact me and we can discuss the comps and what price is supported by the recent sales and the current condition of the home.
I focus my work extensively in this area of Bethesda so I've developed a lot of expertise in the home values in Bethesda, neighborhoods, school systems and local amenities.
Additional Homes Available from $500,000 - $750,000
