by : Justin Lee

The rumors about the decline of the real estate market have been circulating for some time now and it is true that many of the markets that had exploded over the past years have cooled off somewhat. However there are certain areas of the country that are now seeing their own popularity start to rise dramatically. Take a look at Bethesda, Maryland. A quick jaunt away from the Nation's Capital, Bethesda is poised to experience steady growth in both population and popularity. In fact homes are selling faster here than they can go on the market. With the excess of assets that Bethesda offers this is quickly becoming one of the hottest markets in the east.

To illustrate the picture a bit better, the Bethesda market is seeing multiple offers on homes within the first week of listing. When one takes the time to examine Bethesda in further detail it is easy to see why this phenomenon is occurring. This area is a diverse community that offers a great selection of homes in almost any price range. A perfect community for families due to the excellent education system and an abundance of recreational options, Bethesda is one of America's most educated and affluent communities. This is a city that is committed to the needs of it's residents and this is evident in the careful attention that is paid to the visual aspects of the community. well maintained streets frame scenic parks and green spaces that only serve to add beauty to this serene area.

Along with the amazing homes, great recreation and thriving business sector, Bethesda has the distinction of being known as the best-educated city in the Nation with a huge percentage of the population holding bachelor's degrees, and almost half the population holding graduate or professional degrees. It is easily seen that this has created an ideal atmosphere for business and commerce. Along with the close proximity to the Capitol this has opened up many avenues of employment for Bethesda residents. This is also a favorite community for commuters to Washington D.C. as it offers a minimal commute, fantastic home values and the serenity of a suburban area with convenience that one would expect from much larger cities.
