How Do Dowell Post Office(Zip Code 20629) Changes Affect Real Estate Searches?

Dowell, Maryland’s mail delivery has recently undergone some big changes.  With the closing of the Dowell post office homeowners now have delivery at their homes, via the Solomons, Maryland post office, as opposed to having post office boxes previously, and will have the Solomons, Maryland zip code, 20688, for mailing purposes.

The association with Solomons will possibly be helpful from the real estate perspective to sellers from the standpoint that Solomons is better known to buyers and visitors to the area.

However, as with any type of address change, this undoubtedly will cause some issues with the transition. For example, for homeowners, it means the differentiation of the property address of record in the tax records vs. mailing address. It will take a period of time for the tax records to be updated.

In the case of online real estate searches, Dowell properties will need to continue to be searched as “Dowell” – for the time being. It will be interesting to see how and when this online transition will occur – and maybe, if, it will change – as well as how the change might affect other aspects of Dowell real estate - something the local real estate community will be watching closely.
