Yes.....contact a loan officer and get pre-approved. You may not want to spend the entire amount of the approval figure. And...any offer you make on a property will need to include this pre-approval letter from the loan officer. Step one....get pre-approved. Good luck...great time to buy.... more
you're in MD, not Fl or some other southern state, so I need to ask.........Is this "sun room" a 3 season room........or a year round room with heat and AC?
Often they may look pretty, but get extremely hot in summer (even with ceiling fans)..
Not quite sure what you mean by "will be added to all 3 levels" (do you mean it's a 3 story addition?), also don't know what [rice range you're in....but........
my immediate response between the 2 options is......go with the finished basement.
Families with children appreciate the added play space or space for optional home/office or even potential au pair suite.... more
As a REALTOR and an economist I don't think it is that accurate Steve.
There are 4 methods to value a property in Real Estate. The 4th or Multiple Regression Analysis is probably most similar to what zestimate does. It essentially is a statistical method for spitting out a price based on several factors, once enough data points are obtained. But frankly what zestimate does is oversimplify this process and the more they do that, the less accurate it is.
When an appraiser uses this method (or an economist) there are literally over 100 inputs. Zestimate doesn't have anything close to this, they might have 2-3 dozen at best (based on a very thorough assessor's data) and this too is likely to be quite outdated. Think about how long it takes the assessor to figure out that you put new vinyl siding on your house, or added some skylights, etc.
The point is, that to do something like this is very complex and sure a computer program can (and is required) to do it. But this only really works if they have those 100+ data points. Everything from the type of moldings and floor coverings to a time dating variable (to account for inflation, appreciation, depreciation, etc. in a given market) are considered. How could zestimate possibly do this?? They cannot.
So ultimately what you have is a "zestimate", just that something close, maybe within 10% of the price. And frankly that's about as accurate as what your neighbor Bob, or your cousin Sherrie could tell you.
If you want a good value, call a couple REALTORS, they'll typically do a comparative market analysis for free and I think this is generally a better method, at least on residential real estate.

The condo fee on this unit is $863.85 which includes many amenities and most of the utilities. Unfortunately, this unit is under contract, however, there are other units available. Let me know if you need further information.
Speak to your realtor but I would also recommend speaking to a title attorney. I know a very good one that will speak to you and answer your question if you mention my name. Hopefully you will use them when you purchase your home, there won't be anyone better for you. Please let me know if you require my assistance.
Talk to your agent to determine what homes have been selling for. Typically, homes go for about 96% of asking price in Rockville, but this is an average. Some homes go for more, some go for less. If the house is unpriced, you may have to go above asking to get it. Likewise if it is overpriced, you may have to go 10% or more below asking price.
Your agent will be able to pull comparable houses to get a better sense of where it is priced.... more
That's a very subjective criteria. I'm sure nearly everyone thinks their neighborhood fits your description!
Design-wise, there really aren't any neo-traditional neighborhoods "down county". King Farm in Rockville would be the closest to 270 and metro.
If you like older neighborhoods, there are so many its hard to narrow it down, but Garrett Park or AU Park in NW DC might be places to consider.... more
