homes for sale in stevensville: Tax Time - 01/25/11 04:27 PM
As tax time approaches, the more prepared you are to file, the better. So I'm giving you 6 facts the IRS wants you to know about dependents and exemptions that will help you file your 2010 tax return. Exemptions reduce your taxable income: There are two types of exemptions: personal exemptions and exemptions for dependents. For each one you can deduct $3650 on your 2010 tax return. Your spouse is never considered your dependent: On a joint return, you may claim one exemption for yourself and one for your spouse. If you're filing a separate return, you may claim spouse only (0 comments)
homes for sale in stevensville: Real Estate in 2011? - 12/22/10 12:05 PM
Next year, housing prices will likely drop 5-10% nationally-finally hitting bottom, according to Altos research, a real estate data company. That doesn't mean that we're instantly going to bounce out of that trough. Expect local price instability. Early 2011 will bring the usual seasonal bounce in prices, similar to this year's period of price stabilization that occurred before the expiration of the home buyer tax credit. Altos' latest housing market update projected that an uptick in seasonal demand would start to be visible in the third week of January. But two supply trends will ultimately drive prices lower next year; rising (0 comments)

homes for sale in stevensville: Pro's & Con's of Open Houses - 12/17/10 05:19 PM
This has always been a dilemma. Do we or don't we hold an open house? Here are a few things to consider: Pro's: Home sellers who allow their Realtor to hold an open house benefits from greater exposure, and the open house allows agents to bring in clients over a 3 or 4 hour period instead of scheduling an appointment. The seller would rather vacate the premises for a single event, rather than every time the agent schedules a showing. Con's: Agents could be focused on meeting potential new clients rather than focusing on selling the home. Items could be stolen (1 comments)
homes for sale in stevensville: Stevensville, MD How To Rebuild Your Credit After Foreclosure - 11/30/10 01:50 PM
If you’ve been through a foreclosure, you may wonder if there is hope for you to become a homeowner again. The answer is yes, but it will take a while. A foreclosure is a major hit to your credit history and stays on your credit report for seven years. Foreclosure is one of the FICO seven deadlies, regardless of the back story— whether it’s a job loss, rate reset, underemployment or other reasons. So, after a foreclosure, your priority has to be rebuilding your credit. You’ll have some time to do so, because mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac impose (0 comments)

During summer months when gardens are in bloom and the sun is shining, curb appeal comes naturally to many homes.

Fortunately, it is possible to create striking winter curb appeal without expensive or complicated exterior changes. It just requires a little creativity. 1. Add splashes of green and purple.

homes for sale in stevensville: Open Houses Realistic? - 10/18/10 04:56 PM
Client expectations of what an Open House does to sell their home, isn’t always in line with the reality of what an Open House does accomplish. Open Houses typically get the Real Estate agent the opportunity to connect with a prospective Buyer Client. I believe the statistic I had read most recently was that less than 4% of properties sell as a result of an Open House. So as a Seller, are you really motivated to sell your home? If so then you need to look at other factors in the Sale and seek solutions there. Here is what I tell (1 comments)
