Rock Creek Forest MD Homes For Sale Update 12/20/2013

Candy Cane City playground and dog runHappy Holidays, neighbors! The frozen puddle picture was taken at Candy Cane City Thursday  morning, but I hear that this weekend will bring us temperatures in the upper 60s! Perfectly fine with me, actually.  Now to our update for 12/20/13: No new listings. One price reduction. No new contracts since last week.

All homes and condos in this post are currently for sale in the Rock Creek Forest neighborhood. The top of the list features the newest listings, while those at the bottom have been on the market for a while. Marcie and Cati will be updating this post every Friday, so be sure to check back to see what’s new, what’s gone, & what might be coming (and check out the date up top… if it’s not current, neither is this information!). While most of these might not be our own listings, we’ve taken the time to inject our opinions on the condition, features, quirks and pricing. Full disclosure: Cati has lived (and sold real estate) in Rock Creek Forest for 8 years (after residing in NW Washington DC for the previous 11 years). (More about why this neighborhood is one of the DC suburbs’ best kept secrets here.) And if you have a question or want to chat, please don’t hesitate to get in touch at anytime!
