How is the market?  What is actually out there for buyers?  Not much, at least that's what we get to hear from frustrated buyers all the time.  In a few days, it will be time for an analysis of the first quarter statistics.  For now, let's look at the available properties in this DC suburb: There...

  The absolutely amazing Travis Price house I mentioned a few weeks ago, finally went on the market yesterday!  It's a big and very special house, and the sellers--hard-working DC professionals with little time to spare--did a great job to get it ready for the public.  My co-lister Bonnie Lewin a...

While January traditionally sees the fewest closings under any market conditions in the DC area—a consequence of the lowest level of contracts entered during the holiday season—the current weather improvement gives hope that market activity soon will pick up. (The groundhog can’t be wrong!) This ...

After four months in this country, our German au pair, Steffi, still seems perpetually surprised about the fact that so many of the cliches and stereotypes she had in her head don't turn out to be that true. At least in DC, not everybody eats fast food and fried chicken all the time, not everybod...

The 4th Quarter of each year is traditionally the "slowest" in any real estate market, at least in the DC area.  It's time to look back and evaluate some trends.  Today, we are taking a closer look at the Washington, DC suburb of Rock Creek Forest, the most eastern neighborhood of Chevy Chase, Ma...

Help!!  This one is for you house doctors, you diagnosticians of home anatomy.  It happens all the time, especially in the DC area where former swamp land and clay soil have formed a hostile union:  mold in the basement, wet carpets, rotten doorposts, peeling paint, a nasty, mildewy smell, and al...

Here we are: It’s late in the day, and I’m trying to pick out properties for a buyer I’m going to meet in the morning. It doesn’t help when all the places look alike in that price range, does it? Next on the list is just one more renovated condo, number 17 of 23, or something like that. It’s in a...
