homerome: First Year Condo Fees Could Be Paid By The Seller - 08/25/16 10:18 AM
 
 2331 Old Court Road
The Risteau Unit 304
 
Take a look at the 
 Photo Slideshow 
 
 
 
My seller was listening to my radio show this past Sunday when we discussed concerns about condominium fees.
 
My creative seller suggested we let a potential buyer know that with a full price offer the condo fees would be paid, by the seller, in advance for the first year!
I have just made this part of the MLS remarks
First year condo fee paid by seller.
 
My suggestion would be each month the new buyer put aside monthly fees so the following year's fees would be available.
Please call me to tour this lovely luxury condo in The Risteau. … (2 comments)

homerome: HomeRome Goes Straight To Sold - 08/23/16 06:01 PM
 
 
 
This home went to settlement today but there was no TOO LATE sign.
When I went on the listing
a few weeks ago, the decision was made not to make it active until the end of August.
 
The sellers wanted the house vacant and needed time to move out.
While the movers were doing their job, a buyer approached the seller.
The seller called me with the buyer's information.
 A contract was written with a  three week closing and in "as is" condition.
There was no TOO LATE sign because
the FOR SALE sign was never installed. 
 
HomeRome went straight to SOLD.
 
We had another smooth settlement...this time … (6 comments)

homerome: Beautiful Way To Spend A Day In Baltimore - 08/22/16 08:21 PM
What a lovely way to spend the day in Baltimore.
There was a repeat showing on my
1560 Bluemount Road in Monkton.
The buyers wanted to see the  cottage. It was my pleasure to walk the NCR trail to show this magnificent setting. The weather was perfect, sunny breezy and low 80's
That middle photo below was taken from the river cottage..
 
 
 
 
 
And later my friends, also former clients, picked me up and treated me to some great conversation and a delicious meal at Villagio Cafe in Towson.
Our waiter Amir, pictured above,  was so attentive suggesting  special dishes and checking to make sure we … (6 comments)

homerome: Unique Listings Are Not For Sissies - 08/21/16 01:35 PM
 
 
 
 
Most people who know me, know I specialize in unique and unusual properties.
Those that are old, maybe  historic, contemporary homes, Deck Houses and  homes that have been on the market with other agents and not sold.
  The houses that agents say cannot be sold or will never appraise because there are no comps, the  difficult listings...they are the ones I want.
It is not unusual for my properties to have a higher DOM (days on market) count. My properties are not cookie cutter homes or what I refer to as 'Cloneonials'.
Maryland and many other states love 4 bedroom brick colonials with a … (15 comments)

homerome: Reminder- Saying Goodbye To Your House - 08/20/16 07:17 PM
 
Sellers need to say goodbye to the home they are leaving.
 
 
 
 
Everyone knows that moving from one home to another takes a lot of time, planning and emotion. You work hard getting the house ready to show and sell and then even harder sorting and packing.   You have neighbors you won’t see after you move.  Take some time to say your farewells to them.   What no one talks about is the last step, the final goodbye, this time to your house.
The home you are leaving is part of you no matter whether you’ve spent a few years or many decades.  What's the … (15 comments)

homerome: You Are Entitled To Your Opinion But Not on MY Posts - 08/18/16 09:21 AM
 
 
Of course I look forward to engaging and reading your comments on my daily blog posts.
What I do not want is your honest opinions on a specific property.
 
 
 
 As many of you know, I specialize in unique, unusual  and even hard to sell real estate. They are certainly not for the average buyer and it takes a while to find the right buyer for these homes that are a far cry from "cookie cutter'. 
If I am featuring  a mid century modern rancher, a Deck House, a farm house, a gingerbread Victorian, a historic home or one with 2 bedrooms and 5 … (98 comments)

homerome: Needed: 3 Bedroom Condos In Baltimore - 08/12/16 06:19 PM
 
 
Are you thinking of selling a condo in Baltimore?
 Do you have a condo with at least three bedrooms? 
 
 
 
 
There is a shortage of larger condos in our Baltimore area.
Buyers want larger condominiums.
They want the convenience, the doorman, the underground parking and the maintenance free exterior. They want  no worries about the roof, the lawn and that cold white stuff in the winter.
Traveling is easier...just lock the door and go and...condos make perfect second homes.
 
Anyone at any stage can live in a condo...a move from the larger house, empty nester, busy professional, single, classic client, couples and those who just want to be around others for  company, safety … (2 comments)

homerome: A Letter To My Dear Old House - 08/11/16 06:42 AM
 
Selling homes for me is not about sticks and bricks and taking a another listing and making another sale.
  Clients, that I choose to work with, are special and unique and many times their home is just as special and unique.
 
 
 
 
Please take some time to read this letter written by the owner of my
newest special home. 
 
Received 8/11/2016
 
To my dear old house,
It is with a heavy heart that I am writing this letter to you, although I know it is time.
As you know, I haven’t been spending as much time with you over the last few years.
You know that I have gotten … (26 comments)

Since I already had lunch plans, I made the appointment  for 3:30.
I quickly placed the one hour open house into our MLS, had a nice lunch with  my daughter before  meeting the potential buyers.
They turned out to be a  lovely couple who seemed to really appreciate this unique house.
As I was finishing the lower level and pool tour, I turned to find another potential buyer in this beautiful contemporary home. I was a little surprised because this home … (5 comments)

homerome: So I Went On A Listing Appointment - 08/06/16 08:19 PM
 
A few  weeks ago I went on a listing appointment, got a positive  answer to my two questions.
 
1- Are you 100% sure you want to sell?
2- Are you 100% you want to use me?
 
 
 
The listing was signed to go active at the end of  August.  The plan was to move out and have a clean vacant house.
 
My seller called...there was a buyer!
Someone stopped by who saw the moving truck and wanted to live in this neighborhood.
 
Should things work out, this will settle  even  before the planned listing date.
 
Sometimes things sell before they even hit the market.
Stay tuned for the rest of the story.
