New Bethesda Real Estate & Information

New Homes In Bethesda Real Estate & Information


About 50 older homes in Bethesda are torn down for redevelopment every year. Bethesda has always been a popular place due to its location just over the Washington, DC line. Many of the homes in Bethesda were built in the 1950's as the DC metropolitan area began to expand.

Fast-forward 50 plus years and Bethesda has become even more popular. First, Bethesda offers some of the best public schools in the country. Second, traffic congestion in the DC area is quite challenging. Bethesda benefits from four Metro stops, offering those commuting to downtown DC a fast way into the city and a way to avoid much of the rush-hour hassles. Third, the redevelopment of downtown Bethesda has created a go-to place for eating, entertainment and other fun urban activities.  

The combination of older homes, big lots, great location and affluent home buyers and creates a perfect recipe for redevelopment.  Many original Bethesda home owners now find that the land underneath their home is more valuable to a builder than their house is to an owner-occupant. This has created an opportunity for builders to buy an old house, tear it down and build a new one.  The redevelopment of Bethesda really took off when the Internet bubble crashed and has not let up since. Perhaps home owners wanted a safe place to invest their money and felt real estate was their best bet.  As you drive down any street in Bethesda, you can easily see how much this trend has taken hold as many of the homes currently for sale are newer.
