When I first moved to Washington from New York, a new neighbor invited me to accompany her on a Saturday morning outing to the Bethesda Farm Women's Market.  And what an adventure!  There were, and still are, stalls selling all sorts of things, from Brussels Sprouts to sweaters to freshly baked bread and cookies. This morning, I popped by for some flowers, a bit of ham, some sag paneer, and some really amazing oatmeal raisin cookies.  In the old days, you had to make or grow whatever you sold.  And many of the merchants do exactly that.  If they're selling beef, they'll regale you with stories of the cow that was romping around the barnyard until very recently.  I almost bought a free range chicken until the stall owner said they got it from a chicken farm up near Frederick, but couldn'...

Try to dig your plants as early as possible so that the plants can develop strong healthy roots for our customers (who may be our own club member friends!) Thoroughly soak the plants to be dug the day before you plan to lift them. Prepare (purchase) some light potting soil to use instead of taking more soil from the bed where the plants are growing. Put potting soil in the bottom of each pot. After you dig, fill the hole with some potting soil, too, to enrich your garden. As you dig, disturb the plant roots as little as possible. Lift the plant with a small bit of earth. Trim the roots slightly, if necessary, to fit the plant into the pot (or use the next size pot). To prevent girdling, do not coil the stray roots around the root ball. Work in more soil with your fingers. Gently rap th...

I often have people ask me if I ever rode the Carousel at Glen Echo Park as a kid?  Unfortunately I did not grow up here and never had the privilidge of riding the carousel. The carousel is the  Dentzel Carousel built in 1921.  The Park was formed back in 1891 and was used for Arts, science and literature mostly.  In the early part of the 1900's it became an amusement park that most local Washingtonians grew up with until 1968. The Federal Government took the land over as part of the park service, but in 2002 Montgomery County Maryland took the park back.  It has been set up as a non profit organization and still today it remains true to the Arts, science and literature as started in 1891.  The park sits perched above the Potomac River. You can still ride the Dentzel Carousel.  It opens...

       As many people already may know; The Government has agreed to bailout all troubled assets, within corporations on Wall St, mainly. This certainly affects us, both good and bad.      This most important thing to realize is, it was inevitable. This had to happen or our situations would be worst than that of the depression era.      Mortgage rates have gone down and will continue to drop a little more even, to stay somewhere just under 6%, for the time being.  This will help 'kickstart' the housing sector somewhat.      Regrettably, we are all left holding the bag, as taxpayers.  With, what some say to be, upwards of 1 Trillion dollars in deficit in 1 year; taxes will have to be raised. None of us are immune. Both the little guy and the big will be paying for this. Lets just hope it...

This market update is for all price ranges, and provides a snapshot    of Washington    DC and several "close in" cities. The market continues to show large inventory of unsold properties and relatively low volume of homes under contract indicating a strong buyers' market. With interest rates dropping in the last weeks because of aggressive federal intervention to rescue Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the time is ripe for all categories of buyers, especially first time home buyers with reasonably good credit scores. "Active" indicates a property that is on the market for sale through a professional realtor. Source MRIS, which does not include some "for sale by owners".

Today Freddie Mac and Fannie May were taken over by the government. This is a milestone, in the current housing situation and hints at many more changes to come.  Namely, does this signify the bottom of the housing market? Many think so. Mortgages rates dropped almost a 1/2 percent today for home buyers. I think the most interesting questions in our area markets is; the upper echelons of the housing markets in the D.C. metro areas are doing quite fine. How will this affect our market? The government taking over these two firms will positively effect our market in a great way. There will be more money to lend and it will be easier to obtain a loan, for qualified buyers. If you are in the market to buy a home, or if you are considering to buy a home; seriously think about purchasing by th...
