Are you moving to Bethesda?
Bethesda is a great place to live and work.
When my family moved here from Colorado many years ago, my mother insisted that we settle in Bethesda. She was a proud Montgomery County school teacher specializing in reading for many years. My father worked for many years as an ecologist with the Department of Energy. He ran many races with the local Road Runners Club of Montgomery County and won many awards showing minature roses at local rose shows. My brother and I graduated from Walter Johnson High School and my sister from Woodward High School when the school lines changed. Over 60,000 people call Bethesda their home.
Why do people move here? I can think of ten reasons off the top of my head
Reason 1: Great Homes - in the $700,000 to $1,000,000 price range
Depending upon where you are coming from, one of the first things you may experience is sticker shock. The median price of a home in 2011 was over $750,000. I had a woman who was about to accept employment in the area when she checking out the prices of the homes in the area that housing was twice as much as where she was relocating from. She decided not to relocate. But every year many peole do move here and find that great value comes with those prices.
