The Westbard Vision

ConceptImage

Concept Rendering of the New Westbard Ave in Bethesda from Equity One

Equity One, a publicly-traded real estate investment trust specializing in neighborhood retail shopping centers, acquired Westbard Shopping Center, Westwood Center II, Westwood Towers, Springhouse by Manor Care, Bowlmor Lanes and two Citgo gas stations on Westbard Avenue in Bethesda.  The properties stretch over 22 acres.

The company states that their mission is to create a “modern, comfortable gathering space offering convenient shopping and dining integrated with community spaces, green places and a walkable streetscape.”  While their “vision” for Westbard/Westwood is still a conceptual one, plans are moving forward rapidly towards approval of a Final Master Plan from Montgomery County slated for the Spring 2016.

The vision includes a complete renovation of the area including redesigning traffic flow from adjacent River Road and Massachusetts Avenue, including pedestrian walk-ways, street redesigns and more.  There is a plan to add about 600 residential units which has created elevated concern from area residents about the already overcrowded schools and local streets.

Through a series of community meetings in the Summer and Fall 2014, Equity One gathered comments and feedback from area residents.  In addition, on March 4th, 2015, they completed a traffic analysis using Wells + Associates, their traffic engineer.

Their analysis determined that “even with all of these changes, the identified intersections will still allow traffic to flow at a satisfactory level measured against the nationally recognized standards employed by the county.”  Montgomery County will also conduct a traffic analysis in the near future.  Incidentally, residents may like to hear that the plan includes a shuttle to the Metro Red Line.

In February of 2015, Equity One shared its initial concept plans for the redevelopment of the area and provided a power point presentation on their website including renderings of the proposed changes.  Click here to view the presentation.

Upcoming important dates include a public hearing of the draft plan currently scheduled for May 14, 2015.  In the Fall of 2015, the County Council will hold a Public Hearing.  The Final Master Plan is slated for approval in the Spring 2016.

Bethesda Home Prices Surpass Record!

Home prices in the Bethesda area have surged forward this year eclipsing the annual record detached home price set in 2007.

On January 5th, Bethesda Magazine published an article reflecting this data, quoting Brian Maury of Maury Real Estate, on its local daily news website, Bethesda Beat.  According to data from our local multiple listing service, the average price of a detached home in Bethesda (zip codes 20814, 20816, and 20817) increased by over $47,890 in 2014. The average price of a detached home jumped to $1,093,042 an increase of over 4.6% when compared to 2013.  Less impressive was the jump in median price.  The median price of a detached home in 2013 was $895,000.  The median price of a detached home in 2014 increased just $26,000, or 2.9%, to $921,000 (the median is the price at which half the sales are below that point and half are above).

Bethesda Real Estate performance 2007-2014

Bethesda Real Estate performance 2007-2014

Home prices this year have climbed to new heights in our area and while there is evidence of a sharp decline in the rate of appreciation in home values across the nation, there appears to be some momentum building up again at the end of 2014.

“After a long period when home prices rose, but at a slower pace with each passing month, we are seeing hints that prices could end 2014 on a strong note and accelerate into 2015,” says David M. Blitzer, Managing Director and Chairman of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices.
Blitzer added, “Two months ago, all 20 cities were experiencing weakening annual price increases. Last month, 18 experienced weakness. This time, 12 cities had weaker annual price growth, but eight saw the pace of price gains pick up. Seasonally adjusted, all 20 cities had higher prices than a month ago.”
Also good news is that U.S. consumer confidence (as measured by the Current Situation Index) is the highest it has been since 2008.  This optimism is translating into real economic growth.  The U.S. Department of Commerce reports that 3rd Quarter GDP (Gross Domestic Product) growth increased at an impressive annual pace of 5%.

Will 2015 shape up to be another solid year for real estate in our area?  We believe so.  While the inventory of available homes in Montgomery County, MD is up nearly 30% from a year ago (only up slightly in the hotter DC real estate market), prices should continue to rise.

We predict another year of home price appreciation in the 4-5% range.  If you are considering a home purchase and/or sale in 2015, contact Brian and Amy Maury of Maury Real Estate for a no-obligation consultation.
