If you are worried then you should not consider this area. I find it to be safe as it has its own police department and they pretty much know all of the neighbors and the trouble spots. Unlike a neighborhood that depends on PG police. ... more

Hi Yvonne,
I agree with my fellow colleagues regarding the speculative nature of real estate. However everything in real estate is somewhat speculative and oftentimes the factors that are used to spur growth or track trends is dependent on the infrastructure that is existing or is future. The more jobs that produced and income that is generated through retail and commercial means the greater the chance of home values increasing over time. How quickly that will happen, that is where the true guess work would come in. Currently you can track any home sale price increases in that area based on what happened over the last 4 years as the National Harbor came out of the ground and grew in popularity not only among those living in the DMV area but also as a tourist attraction. Like one of the gentleman said the increase has been dismal, but that is the real estate market as a whole over the last 4 years. However within the past year we have started seeing a stabilizing and small incremental price increases.
If you want to track the trends easily go to:

All the Best!

Sounds like your agent is giving you good advice. Check all the other questions here on Trulia from people who made offers on short sales, and they're waiting months for a reply. And remember, when the reply comes, it may not be positive. It's really a gamble. And there's seldom a way to speed up the process. So, bottom line is that if you're really interested in a short sale, you should be prepared to wait for months, recognizing that even then the answer may not be positive.

You might consider expanding your criteria a bit. First, you may find some good deals that aren't short sales. Just owners having to compete against short sales in their neighborhoods. And don't rule out foreclosures. If a short sale fails, and a foreclosure occurs, then the bank owns it, and it comes back on the market. Buying a foreclosure isn't a piece of cake, but people I know (including a number of people who work the Maryland foreclosure market) say that foreclosures, in general, go quicker and more smoothly than short sales.

Good luck.
