walk to nih: Homes for Sale- East Bethesda MD 20814 - 1/6/2012 - 01/09/12 06:46 PM

January 6 update:  No new listings, no price drops, and 1 house went under contract (one of the townhouses - making this the first time in over a year that none are for sale within East  Bethesda).

A lot of my real estate clients want to live where they can walk to NIH Metro, either because they work there, or because of the easy commute into the District. Traffic these days is a bear. And it's only going to get worse. 2,500 new employees are expected to join the National Naval Medical Center when Walter Reed closes, adding to an already congested rush hour.
