Why Am I just Seeing Picture of Washington DC
And why just the list of cities that will Flourish and Flounder in 2011? My apologies but I'm having trouble linking out to other post to help support my claim that these real estate studies that look with such a wide lens are useless. Per Forbes
If the list and and a picture of DC is enough for you, by all means, enjoy. For full commentary I invite you to our sister site GreaterBethesdaOnline.com (see related links for location of post) Again, my apologies and hoping you stop by regardless of the change of locations!

Contributing Chevy Chase Maryland blogger: Kevin Koitz: Last week I produced a report containing the final quarter home sales in Chevy Chase Maryland (2007 vs. 2008). For those of you unfamiliar with the Chase MD, take a quick peak at that post if you're interested in a briefe synopsis of the area and map. For those of you who have already read the market stats from that post, you know that I had suspected I had miscalculated some of the figures (there's a first for everything). Below are the revised statistics, checked, and re-checked for your viewing pleasure. Thanks for your patience!

Chevy Chase Maryland Real Estate Report -
A Continuing Series Studying The "Tale of Two Quarters" (fourth quarter 2007 vs. 2008)
Have you taken a peak at the Bethesda real estate (20814) report from the other day? I won't hold it against you if you haven't but I'd still love some feedback on why you think more units sold in 20814 in the 4th quarter 2008 compared to a more "robust 2007". Whatever the case, take a look at the statistics if you get a chance, especially if you get through this entire post (!) focused on Chevy Chase Maryland Homes and like property.
Like the neighboring Bethesda (20814) area, Chevy Chase Maryland is a difficult area to break down into "variables" and "metrics" because of vast disparity in prices in the zip code. As previously noted, while in the Southern part of 20815 (areas close to Bethesda and the upper Northwest Washington DC line) most houses will break into seven figures, as you travel further north in the zip code, you'll begin to find more "affordable" (in big quotes!) homes in the $500,000K area.
A wonderfully updated and expanded Cape Cod, on a jaw dropping lot, is now available for sale at the reduced price of $924,000. This charming Chevy Chase home offers three bedrooms and three full bathrooms, which includes a master suite with a separate sitting room/office and Juliet balcony overlooking the professionally landscaped back yard. The first floor features an updated kitchen, a cozy tv/family room, a generous formal dining room, and a large living room which opens to a sunroom. The lower level rec room is perfect for play, exercise or guests and there is also an ample laundry/storage room. All of this is located on a quiet, one block long street, which offers a great sense of privacy. The estimated property tax and non-tax charges for the first full fiscal year of ownership are $8713.79.
