Bethesda if you can afford it, has a walkable downtown, that is preferable to Rockville, which is defined mostly by commercial strips along Rockville Pike aka R.355.
SFH in Bethesda will generally be more expensive than Rockville.

You could look at areas between Bethesda and Rockville, around the Grosvenor and Twinbrook Metro stops.

I would start by finding the least expensive house in the most expensive school district and then adjust up or down from there.
Thank you very much for your answering my question.
After spending two months to search for house, i finally got one and moved to Potomac a few weeks ago. Potomac is a beautiful place.

Fort Washington lacks Asian supermarkets, and the National Harbor and Tanger do not appear to fill this void. Aside from a small Filipino population, Fort Washington seems to draw very few Asians. Which areas of DC Maryland houses most Asian Indians and East Asians?
I'm not sure if it hosts the most Asians. But Rockville, specifically near the city center is diverse and has a lot of Asian restaurants and food stores. We really like the area. The problem is housing. Seems the only choices around there are 2-4 story attached townhomes or hi-rise condos.

I dont live in Maryland but have several Chinese relatives in the NoVa, DC area. From my experience, check out the area from Silver Springs to Rockville. Tons of asian markets, restaurants, and services there! At least a couple asian supermarkets with a fish market, authentic cuisine, and locally owned shops are all over the place in Montgomery county.

Furthermore, my Uncle moved into a condo in a very well kept retirement community called Leisure World. You can have a condo, a duplex, or single detached home there and its several thousand strong with all the amenities and activities you could want. I worked out of his place for a few weeks and it was an incredibly safe and comfortable stay. Check out Leisure World near Silver Springs
