Montgomery County Inside the Beltway Real Estate & Information

Montgomery County borders Washington DC and Virginia. It is consistently ranked among the 10th richest counties in the United States. It consists of a highly educated, artistic and international population that makes Montgomery county real estate worth considering.

Montgomery County's proximity to DC helps create strong employment and job growth opportunities. Thanks to the National Institute of Health (NIH), many doctors and scientists are drawn to the area to pursue their work. Many diplomats and World Bank and International Monetary Fund employees that work in DC also choose to live in Montgomery as well. 

Montgomery County's high-quality schools and proximity to Washington DC have made it a very desirable place to live.  In particular, for those commuting to DC, the demand to live close-in has made the areas inside the Beltway very popular. The Beltway (also known as I-495) is a major highway that forms a circle around Washington DC.  During rush hour, traffic can become congested, so new residents looking to buy real estate in the Washington DC area may want to start their search looking "Inside the Beltway" to avoid a long and sometimes frustrating rush hour.  There are only a few cities that meet this criteria.  They are, starting with the priciest areas first, Chevy Chase, Bethesda, Silver Spring and Takoma Park. Kensington and parts of Rockville, although technically not inside the Beltway, are so close-by that there are in high demands as well.  These areas have the advantage of being close to DC for those people choosing to drive to work.  These areas also benefit from their proximity to the Metro Red Line, for those desiring a mass transportation option.
