it did not become condominiums until late 2005. The condo fees include gas, water, sewer, common area maintenance, and the master insurance policy.  The condo fees in 2022 are consistent with other condos of a similar price point.  The one bedroom with 640 square feet has a condo fee of $492 while a 817 square foot two bedroom one bath condo has a fee of $615 each month.

Floor Plans

There are a variety of units in the Fairmont Plaza Condominiums for you to choose from – studios, one bedrooms and two bedrooms. Balconies, updated kitchens with granite and stainless, hardwood floors are some of the upgrades you can expect.

Similar Condos?

and the ability to walk to two metros right at the edge of the Woodmont Triangle.  However, perhaps you are not certain where you want to live and you are not sure which buildings you should visit.   If you like medium sized modern high rise buildings, you might look at the Christopher, the Chase, Madison Park and the City Commons in addition to the new luxury buildings like the Lauren, Cheval and Stonehall.  Further into Chevy Chase you might look at the Elizabeth or 4620 N Park.   Up into North Bethesda, you might consider the Gallery or the Sterling on Old Georgetown Road as reasonable alternatives.  If you are feeling completely confused now by all your options, then you should give us a call at 240-401-5577 to talk about which buildings will truly match your wants and needs best!

Value of Your Fairmont Plaza Home

There are a number of sites on the internet that will give you ‘estimates’ for what your home will sell for. These sites use public records and usually some kind of algorithm to try to produce a value for your home. These sites also publicly state their ‘error rates’. That means they aren’t correct, they are simply an estimate based on incomplete date. We would love to do a free comparative market analysis of your home  and let you know what could expect to get in today’s market if you are considering selling. Our valuation is based on up to the day data for homes that have recently sold in the area. Our valuation is not based on a formula that relies on public records which can take months to update.
