Tempers Flair, Temperatures Rise, Rentals Vanish Before Our Eyes
The rental market is hot, hot, hot in Annapolis Maryland.  Yesterday the thermometer in the car said the temperature was around 90 degrees.  It had been seasonable cooler earlier in the week, but, has now turned hot and muggy for this time in June.  Testy tenants and temperamental listing agents along with unseasonably warm and muggy temperatures have conspired to make for a fenzied rental market in Annapolis Maryland.

Deale Beach and Rest Haven in Deale Maryland
The views from homes along the Chesapeake Bay in the communities of Deale Beach and Rest Haven are nearly unchanged since 1659 when Englishman Richard Gott marked off the 600 acres of Deale.  In the 1850's watermen traveled from the Eastern Shore to a huge natural oyster bar called Bay Shore Bar.  At one time, most of Rest Haven was owned by Captain Bernard Franklin.  Later the area became the Phipps farm and by the 50's it was the McKibbon's farm.  Then later sub-divided and aptly named the area "Rest Haven".  The History … (4 comments)

Coastal Flooding On Thompson Creek in Stevensville Maryland 21666
High tide this morning was about 7:13 am.  That and the upcoming Summer Solstice (on June 21, 2011) conspired to submerge the low land around Thompson Creek.  The tide was about 1.78 feet and as a result put the docks under water and breached the rip rap spilling onto the lawn.  It was calm with almost no wind driven ripples in the water.  The morning was bright and cool, around 71 degrees, unseasonably cool and not much humidity.

The weather forecast had included a coastal flood watch the night before.  And, there had … (0 comments)

Let's Get Soaking Wet - Homes For Sale with Pools in Annapolis Maryland
It's Memorial Day weekend, time for backyard fun, outdoor grilling, hot dogs and hamburgers, and a dip in the swimming pool.  When the temperature soars, it's time to get down in the pool, to get soaking wet!

Some buyers think that pools are a liability or just don't want the maintenance hassle.  Perhaps they've owned a pool before and just don't want to be bothered. Or they don't know just how easy it is to maintain a pool.  Either way, from about mid-May until mid-September we are jealous when we … (4 comments)
