Spark A Bidding War

Ready to make a move? Have a certain figure in mind that you need to sell for? Depending on your market, you might be able to get a little more than what you may be needing. Go over with your agent if setting a bidding war is smart for the sale of your home, and if they give the green light, here are a few things to consider to help get your sales price over asking after starting a bidding competition. 1. ATTRACT MORE BUYERS When there isn't much interest in a property, buyer's get nervous and suspicious that there may be something wrong with the home that they may be missing, and that could sometimes be further from the truth. You want to price your home competitively to entice more showing

Woodland Retreats

With something like 419,840 acres in Garrett County, Maryland and most of that land being wooded, it's natural that many of the homes here exude that "cabin in the woods" style. Growing up here, I lived in a cedar sided home that I always thought of as our woodland cottage. As an adult, it's the type of home that I always envisioned for myself and my family. (Oddly enough, we ended up in a farmhouse in a wide open field...) With so much wooded space around this beautiful mountain county, it makes sense that there are a lot of different cabin and cottage homes available. In this post, I highlight my newest listing, 40 Bray Hill Lane in Oakland, Maryland. You'll also find a link at the bottom

What's the Right Deep Creek Lake Home for You?

Deep Creek Lake is the largest inland body of water in the U.S. state of Maryland. It covers approximately 3,900 acres and has 69 miles of shoreline. The lake is home to a wide variety of freshwater fish and aquatic birds. The Wisp ski resort and Swallow Falls state park are located nearby. Here are Deep Creek, we have 4 distinct seasons. We have attractions and adventures that are unique and exciting. And just as these seasons and adventures offer a particular experience, there are so many special homes in our area. In this post, I am going to highlight some of my favorite lake area homes that each offer a one-of-kind feeling for those who enter. When I first have the opportunity to talk to

Why Rent If You Can Buy?

Home ownership rates are the lowest they have been in the last 50 years. Yet a large portion of Americans are still renting properties, instead of enjoying a home of their own. Consumer reports believe this is an issue because of a buyer's lack of trust in their ability to purchase. It is still a long standing notion that a buyer needs 20% towards the cost of the home in order to move forward, but this isn't true. With countless down payment assistant programs, and closing cost roll-ins, a home owner could move in with as little as a few hundred to a couple thousand dollars. Which is a huge difference in the time it takes to save up to make the move. Current interest rates are stable with so

Deep Creek Lake - The Market Today

March brings the Roar We're days away from the middle of March 2018. We've set our clocks forward one hour and have likely consumed more coffee than we thought possible... (Speaking of my personal experiences, of course) Here at Deep Creek Lake, March truly did come in like a lion, showing us that spring won't spring until she's good and ready. Friday, March 9th we woke up to nearly a foot of fresh powder and continued to receive these blessings throughout the day. Some of the best ski conditions of the year didn't happen until after there was talk that the mountain may be closing. Garrett County is like a box of chocolates... Looking back to the weeks of February, it was a good month for th

Don't Replace Your Agent with the Internet

With the influx of new technology and web based solutions, it isn't a surprise that everything is moving fast into the era of the internet. From sites like Uber to Grubhub, we generally can pull up our phones or laptops to order what we want with ease. And with every industry being revolutionized by technology, the same methods are "attempting" to be applied to the real estate industry. We could all agree that the simplification of the process through paperwork would be much appreciated by agents and buyers/sellers alike; but the attempt of replacing the agent by sites like Zillow and other third party resources, can lead to a snowball affect of disaster. Think about real estate being smack
