Are you really going to do your commute at 5:30 or 6 in the morning? If so, then that's great. If not, then look again at the commutes you're concerned about at around 8:15am and then again going the other way closer to 6:30-7pm. It can make a BIG difference.

On the rest of Montgomery County -- if he's working in Chantilly, and doesn't want to pay to live in the suburbs around there, why in the world would he want to pay to live in Bethesda? And isn't this the guy who wanted land? He's not going to get that in Silver Spring (or Bethesda for that matter).

Kevin,

You got lucky. Do it often enough, and then you will see how bad it can get.

Yup. The military duty day usually starts around 0700 and stops around 1630ish. I can not imagine a time where the day would start later except for bad weather and that extra time is given in these situations.

As for the land, yes, that would be me. I do want more than an acre so desperately. It's so hard to find EVERYTHING we want in one house. Something is going to have to give a little whether it be price, land, deck, granite counter tops, wood floors, something. I did find a few really nice homes but none of which met all the criteria and trying to figure out which criteria is worth more than the others is very tough. Luckily, we have time on our side. I know not everyone is on board with me when I say this but, come on housing slump!

Kevin
