What is the Value of Your Chevy Chase Condo?

There are a number of sites on the internet that will give you 'estimates' for what your home will sell for. These sites use public records and usually some kind of algorithm to try to produce a value for your home. These sites also publicly state their 'error rates'. That means they aren't correct, they are simply an estimate based on incomplete date. We would love to do a free comparative market analysis of your home or condo in Chevy Chase and let you know what you can expect. Our valuation is based on up to the moment data for homes that have recently sold in the area. Our valuation is not based on a formula that relies on public records which can take months to update. Please visit my website in order to get your free property evaluation for your Bethesda home or condo.

Just give the Lise Howe Group a call at 240-401-5577 or email us at Lise@lisehowe.com.  Whether you are buying or selling, put the Bethesda Condo Queen to work for you!
