Would you like to know how much your Chevy Chase Condo is Worth?

Want to know what your condo is really worth?  Did you know that home sales usually take several months from the close date to show up in the public records? That means data used by the different valuation sites is at a minimum months old plus they use some kind of algorithm to try to produce a value for your home. All the while never seeing your home let alone the ones they are comparing yours too. That means they aren't correct, they are simply an estimate based on incomplete date.

When we do a free comparative market analysis of your home or condo in Chevy Chase, you can be assured you will get the most recent data. Our mission is to inform you what you could expect to get in today's market if you are considering selling.

Buying or Selling Condo's is a lot more complicated that residential property. I would hire Lise Howe - she's the only one I'd trust when it comes to Condo sales.
