mls: Is That Home On The Market ? - 10/20/19 05:37 PM
 When I receive a call from a potential buyer about a property, it is important to find out where they saw the home. It could be a yard sign, an ad in the paper, or on any one of a gazillion internet sites.  But is it really available? The only way to know is to check the status in the MLS or speak directly with the listing agent. If working with an agent, just ask them.
We need to take the time and explain why they are seeing these properties but they are not available. 
In Maryland, we use the BRIGHT MLS … (61 comments)

mls: What Happens When You Take Your Home Off The Market - 04/21/17 12:26 PM
What happens when you take your home off the market?
There are times when a seller takes their home off the market for a personal reason, an illness, a vacation or a situation that the house cannot be shown.
Maybe the listing has expired or is withdrawn by mutual consent.

Because there are many computer  programs alerting those who specialize in homes that do not sell. These programs automatically send out letters, cards and  trigger these agents when a home is removed from the … (12 comments)

What  To Expect When Withdrawing  From The MLS
After working with special sellers for a while, they have decided to take the home off the market and sell it to a family member. I agree with their decision and think it is the right thing to do in this situation.
It is always a good idea to tell a homeowner what to expect when  
 Taking  their  house off the market
When I went out to return the keys and retrieve my sign riders, they thanked me for  warning them about the different forms of contacts from numerous agents.
From the moment the listing was … (20 comments)

IF YOU WANT SOLD ON YOUR HOME CALL MARGARET ROME At the end of the calendar year, I like to change my advertising a bit. Sell Your Home With Margaret Rome has been a successful tag line for many years. I was thinking of doing an entire page with "SOLD" signs on all the houses... but then my current listings would not have the exposure. So I am using the top row with a banner that says IF YOU WANT SOLD ON YOUR HOME CALL MARGARET ROME.  It is a subtle change that I will be using for the next two … (9 comments)

Big Smiles! And the Cake Was A Hit! It was a very busy day last week..showing a listing in the morning and then shopping for just the right gift to take to our friend's Christmas party.

This kind of challenge could really make a difference. So instead of telling you what I did productive today for the real estate business...

The One That Got Away Quite a few years ago my friend and neighbor called asking  my opinion about whether or not to sell her Baltimore home. We visited over coffee and some good conversation. Since she owned her home out right, her only expenses were utilities, taxes and upkeep. She loved her home which was  a rancher..all on one floor and was very happy there. Family members were suggesting it was time to make a move to an apartment. I shared my feelings since she specifically asked. This was not the time to move. She was living well within her … (25 comments)
