It is the Spring market, so houses are coming onto the market as property owners decide to sell and move in anticipation of the end of school and the summer moving season.

Since much of the sales activity in the last few months in and around Gaithersburg is the lower priced homes selling to first time buyers and investors, the average sales price has been pulled way down as the number of transactions has jumped way up.

Gaithersburg, which is just North of Rockville, has both charm and history.  The historic Old Town has preserved many old buildings turning them into restaurants, brew pubs and shops.  The old train station is still in use and retains it charm and character.  Most Saturdays you can find farmer’s markets, flea markets and the like around Old Town.
