hunting for buried treasure on the Oregon Coast - 05:35 PM
The Oregon Coast, what a great place to find burried treasure! Now, not all the treasure is gold as my son soon found out, but hey, you never know what you are going to find. He found a lot more nails from pallets that were burned during campfires than gold, but he never did give up!
Do you give up when you are hunting for treasure?
Crofton MD Open Houses - May 20, 2012 - 04:06 AM
The weather in Crofton, MD is going to be spectacular today, and what better way to spend it than visiting a couple of Open Houses. The inventory in the area continues to be low, and these two townhouses won’t last long.
A cautious REMINDER for anyone attending an Open House without an agent. The agent at the property is representing the SELLER, and not any potential BUYER. Also, they are not allowed to solicit your business for any other property while you are at the Open House.
If you're interested in any property in Annapolis,

My Kingdom for a Real Estate Craig Bobble Head Doll!!! - 06:39 AM
Hey all, I'm totally booked solid this weekend showing homes to some great folks here in the Raleigh, Cary, Apex area. But I did have a few minutes late last night for some "me" time.
While "me" time is not a pretty sight, it is inspirational!
So, while playing around with Photoshop, listening to some music, and watching whatever sports were on TV, I came up with this little bit of silliness...
I call this one, "My Kingdom for a Real Estate Craig Bobble Head Doll"!!!
I'm heading out the door now to meet up

How To Win in a Multiple Offer Situation when you are limited on price - 06:45 AM
This article is really thought out well. In toady's environment of home sales, especially in the under $350,000 price range, there are many multiple bid situations. These are very helpful in having an, "edge". I especially liked the Adopt a Pet and Offer to Inherit Property. Joy

Lacrosse is a favorite sport in Catonsville! - 12:06 PM
Ah - lacrosse season in Baltimore County! I didn't grow up around here but have learned how HUGE this sport is in Maryland. The Catonsville High School girl’s team just won the County championship by the way! Many of my son's friends started playing this spring in the Catonsville Lacrosse Recreation Clinic. The games are often played on the fields at Hillcrest Elementary.
Catonsville also has a Soft Stick Program for 3-5 year olds. They use a soft lacrosse ball so they don’t need all the equipment to start playing the sport!
Boy’s lacrosse allows stick checking even at this young age
Great Catonsville Playground in Rollingwood Neighborhood - 06:04 PM
Catonsville has a number of great little playgrounds tucked away! A recent discovery for us is the Rollingwood Park on Devere which cuts between Frederick Road and Old Frederick Road near Westchester Elementary. This playground is special for its' appeal to younger kids - including 2 kiddie basket swings (and 2 regular swings), a small plastic slide and ladder, and a cool race car on a spring big enough for several kids to play in.
Even young walkers can be helped on to these play areas. For the older kids, there is a larger area with several slides and options for climbing.
2+2=? Wow! - 12:04 PM
Sometimes I would ask my assistant to check the units for sale in a particular condo-hotel, and she would give me the number, and then, I go on MLS and my number is different. It is because of the way we search. She goes by the name of the condo and checks “Condotel” in MLS. I search by the addresses. Half of the time the results are different. For example, today 6 out of 13 condo-hotels have each one listing, which is not showing up in a “condotel” search. Many agents mark them in MLS as “Condos”. So, if you search
Frequently Asked Question: Why I Can’t Just Bring A Cashier’s Check To Closing - 05:52 PM
We have a Closing for a condo-hotel studio on the beach scheduled for Thursday, and when I tell the Buyer that they would need to wire the money to the Closing Attorney, she said that she would bring a cashier’s check. And when I tell her that she would have to wire money, she is asking me why can’t she simply bring the cashier’s check? Actually you can bring a Cashier’s check, but if you choose so, you would need to do it a few days before the Closing day, so that the Closing agent can deposit the check and make

Going Once, Going Twice, Going Three Times... - 08:56 PM
The agent called me at 9:30 in the evening on Sunday, just couple of hours ago. She apologized for calling so late, but she said she desperately needed the exact Association Dues figure for the property that her buyer has under contract with my Seller. OK, I have my laptop with me, so it is not a problem. I gave her the amount. She called back in 5 minutes and asked for the exact amount of taxes. I delved into the Property Appraiser site and calculated the taxes based on the taxable value and knowing the millage rate.
