Mark, I would not trust any such information as it is optimistic. I would only rely on test driving it myself.

Glen Cove/ Crestview are highly desirable neighborhoods and, as you mentioned, land values have increased dramatically over the last 5-7 years. With the new development initiative around the Friendship Heights metro, your neighborhood is a prime contender for tear downs. However, there are also some really charming homes that are well located with an easy commute to DC. As the other agents have stated, having a few Realtors come by and see the home and discuss their marketing plan would be a very helpful and informative first step. We would welcome an opportunity to provide a no obligation consultation. Please let us know should you have any additional questions ... more

I'd be more than happy to do this for you if you aren't working with someone already. If you are working with an agent they are capable of narrowing their search criteria to fit that request.
When searching for someone to help you I'd recommend you pick an agent who is knowledgeable in these types of transactions (doing so can save you a lot of time and will put you in a better position to get your home). I am SFR certified (a short sale & foreclosure resource), feel free to check out my blog specifically for short sale buyers like yourself.
Let me know if I can be of further assistance! I am familiar with the CC area (working off of the Chevy Chase Circle in DC)

Happy hunting!

Dear Ann, Buyers who did not put their properties on the market in the spring and early summer most probably paused for August (they are not called the dog days of August for nothing...). We are seeing plenty of activity now, and new homes coming on the market each day. But also a house that's been on the market for a few months and hasn't sold might just be in need of a little updating, and if the sellers are really motivated to move, this is how good bargains can be had. If you haven't already interviewed for a good buyer agent to guide you in this respect, doing so now would be a good choice to help you hone in on the properties that really meet your requirements and desires. But don't expect to find much by way of "steals" and "bargain basement" prices in the part of town you are looking in. That being said, you should expect to negotiate on price and closing costs assistance and win! ... more
