PCS Orders to the U.S. Naval Academy? - 03/29/11 11:59 AM
If you're headed to the U.S. Naval Academy in the coming weeks for duty, you'll want to check out this beautiful townhome that just went on the market. It's located off Forest Drive, only a few minutes from The Yard. Best of all, it's so affordable at $234,900 AND you may be eligible for the $8,000 tax credit extension available to military personnel who purchase by April 30 and close by June 30.
This home would be a great choice, whether you're military or not... whether you work at the U.S. Naval Academy or anywhere else in the region. (6 comments)

Maryland residents know that we're in a buyer's market, yet there are prospective home buyer's still sitting on the sidelines, risking every day that market conditions could be less favorable for them when they finally get into the game. The situation kinda reminds me of this cartoon:

He's going to end up on someone's dinner plate, whichever choice he makes. On the other hand, a procrastinating home buyer will benefit from taking advantage of today's buyer's market: (17 comments)

All Aboard! Thomas the Tank Engine is coming to Maryland! Seriously, no joke, he's coming to the Baltimore Railroad Museum April 29-May 1 and again May 6-8. Tickets are available now for a 25-minute train ride on a full size Thomas the Tank Engine and a chance to meet Sir Topham Hatt, followed by storytelling, live music, and megablocks. When I told my son and daughter-in-law about this visit, they went online right away for tickets and found some times already sold out. But they were able to get tickets for early on that first weekend, and they invited Grandma (20 comments)

Bob Stewart challenged Activerain members to Never Answer the Same Question Twice, and the response was huge. A few weeks into it, I started a new group where we could continue to post our Q&A posts after the challenge was behind us, and I called it the Real Estate Questions & Answers Group
There are only 23 members in the new group, and I'm betting that's because you don't know about it. We could actually take Bob's challenge a little farther and not only "never answer the same question twice" - we could link to the answer provided in (18 comments)
