maryland: A List to Avoid - Common Mistakes Sellers Make - 02/04/14 06:53 AM
As a seller, this is a list you want to avoid yet so many of us make more of these mistakes than we would like to admit while others are completely unaware that they are doing it.  As a listing agent, it is my job to prepare the seller for things that I see as potential problems for a buyer.  This is not always easy to do as it can be very embarrassing for someone to be told that their house smells or that there is to much clutter.  There is truth in the theory that it is impossible to please all … (3 comments)

maryland: Multiple Offer Mania - 07/16/13 02:40 AM
It has been a few years since we have seen situations where multiple offers are in play but certain markets are inundated with them.  Multiple offers are great but can be extremely stressful for both the buyer and the seller.  Buyers today are faced with challenges that they never considered when first deciding to buy a home.  As scary as the home buying process is in and of itself, a multiple offer situation can be scarier. 
In a multiple offer situation, you are now competing for the same property with different buyers.  Maryland state law does not allow the … (3 comments)

maryland: Money is Not Always the Answer - 04/24/13 05:44 AM
Your RealtorÒ called and wants to come over to talk to you in person.  You have received multiple offers on your house but when you ask, how much, your agents’ answer puzzles you.  “Money is not always the deciding factor”, they say.  How could money not be the only thing to consider when selling your home you wonder?  No, Mr. Seller, money is not always the answer.
When you receive an offer on your home, there are several variables to consider other than money.  The buyers’ desire for you to replace the carpet or build a deck or replace a roof … (1 comments)

maryland: Why is there Radon in my Home? - 02/21/12 06:09 AM
Why is there radon in my home?  As invisible as the actual gas itself, radon is an issue that buyers and sellers (or any homeowner) should not only be aware of, but an issue that you should be educated about as well.  Why?  Well the big answer is that, according to the EPA, those who inhale high levels of radon have a dramatically increased risk of cancer.  If you add smoking to that equation, then you’re risk of cancer is even greater.  That is just not a risk that I am willing to take for myself or my family and I’m … (4 comments)

maryland: A Place to Live or Flee?? - 01/31/12 08:06 AM
Are you looking for a place to live or flee?  Everyone wants to live somewhere where you can have easy access to your job, or a place where you can enjoy the natural resources
and that is safe for all those that you love.  This vision also includes a place that provides the highest income potential along with the lowest expenses possible.  My question to you is this, does relocating to Maryland provide this utopia for its current and prospective residents?  We are home to various waterways and mountains and enjoy the benefits of bordering the most influential city in America, Washington … (0 comments)

maryland: Short Sales in the 21st Century - 01/31/12 07:58 AM
Short sale, OMG, LOL or ROFL aren’t 21st century terms that are going away any time soon.  In today’s world, the term “short sale” has also become as common as “milk” or “bread”.  Just like learning the language of texting, understanding what short sales are and how they work take some time and “continued education”.  As a buyer, a short sale can be a tedious process that ends with a disappointing result.  However, as a seller, the toll it takes is much greater.  Yet in today’s volatile real estate market, there are mixed signals being sent to both buyers and sellers … (0 comments)
