What's Happening with Global Interest Rates?! And How will it impact Cecil County Real Estate 
3/4/2011

 Not including your income or credit score, the single most important factor with regard to your ability to afford a home is interest rates. It's pretty simple, the lower the rates, the more house you can afford to buy. For the last several years we have been fortunate that rates have been fairly stable (some say artificially low by Government intervention), but now it looks like we are headed to higher rates, no matter what the government says. I was sent this article titled

It's a Small World After All
Globalization's Impact on Home Loan Rates


from Frank Young, Branch Manager of Primary Residential Mortgage, Inc.  If you think we are immune to rising rates think again. Is it time to purchase before rates increase even more?!

Several of our clients have had good experiences with Frank. If you are shopping for a  Mortgage, put Frank on your list of people to interview.

The New Age of Internet Marketing for Real Estate
3/3/2011

Real Estate Marketing has gone through not just an evolution but a Revolution over the last 7 Years. It used to be so easy, the Realtor entered the listing into the multi-list and they did the rest....But now, if the Realtor doesn't have a complete presence from individual web sites, twitter accounts, facebook fan pages, Blogs, and a specific Google strategy, the properties will not get a wide enough audience and potentially miss that 1 buyer....If you need any more evidence then the power of Internet marketing watch this video on the power of Facebook and remember...Facebook began on February 4, 2004.....

New Listing Tour
3/2/2011

 Every 3 Weeks our office tours Listings that have been put on the Market. This weeks tour brought us to two interesting and diverse homes.

We started in Elkton in the Water Access Community of Arundel and visited 48 Old Chestnut Rd. The Home was listed by Glenda Artinger and is in need of a lot of tender loving care, on the positive side it has a great corner lot. It is not occupied so there is a possibility of quick settlement. If you want a challange this may be for you. It is listed at $175,000, which is $65,000 below appraised value.

We then moved to the other end of the spectrum to 28 Joy Drive in North East. This Wanderfully maintained Cozy Cape was listed by Michelle Burch and has too many upgrades to list. From the Corian counters to brazilian tiger floors, to its paver patio with hot tub. Great detatched garage and additional shed all on just over an acre. This is worth a look!
