Are you thinking about buying a condo in Bethesda? Did you know that the average Condo fee in Bethesda is $600 per month? And that number will only go up as you own the property. That means a $400,000 condo with a monthly condo fee of $600/mo is equal buying a $533,000 house.
That is a $133,000 in buying power. With the same monthly payment.
You can buy a $533,000 single family detached home for the same monthly payment as $400,000 condo with a $600/mo condo fee. And with a detached single family home, you don’t share walls, halls, elevators, parking etc. Plus you can have your very own backyard! Not to mention you own the land it sits on. This means that you could even tear down the existing house and build a new one. Can’t do that with a condo!
So what can you get instead? Let me introduce you to 9707 Montauk Ave

Tired of listening to your neighbors watch TV ? Again is a detached home you have privacy one could only dream about in a Condo or Townhome. How about your very own den looking over your backyard? You can create your own space any way you want. Make use of the space to watch the big game with friends. Invite the boys for a poker night. You could even skip the movie theater and have your very own private date night!
Rather BBQ? You can do that on your own patio and entertain all the friends you can handle. Enjoy your very own private back yard. Get a pet and play fetch. Tune up your green thumb and plant a garden. Put in a putting green and practice your game. One of the privileges of a detached single family home is the ability to improve both the inside and outside as you see fit. NO PERMISSION NEEDED.
Oh yes, this is not your starter kitchen either!
