Bowie, MD has been one of those areas hardest hit by foreclosures. Homes that complete the foreclosures process become bank owned properties and are listed with a local real estate brokerage for sale. The purchase of a bank owned property isn't much different than a normal resale. Bank owned properties are usually sold "as is," and the offer has to go to someone in the bank for a approval. A few extra addenda here and there and you can be the owner of a bank owned property. Right now there are sixty one bank owned properties for sale in Bowie, MD. Details on each of them can be viewed on the map below. If you're not already working with an agent, I can show you any active listing in Maryland...including those Bowie, MD bank owned foreclosures.

With one in six homeowners struggling to make mortgage payments, there is someone you know who could use this information!

It also includes the Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives Program (HAFA) for homeowners who are interested in a short sale or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure.  MAJOR HIGHLIGHTS OF THE NEW HAFA PROGRAM: *  HAFA was introduced to simplify and streamline the short sale process.

Al Pacino's Inspirational Speech For Your Real Estate Team   I found this insperational speech from the movie - Any Given Sunday (Al Pacino). When the market changed and times started to get tough, we all had to fight to maintain our lifestyles that we were used to living and to find new niches in the industry.   I watched this clip on YouTube and said, Wow, this is a great speech for me and my real estate team. I refused to give up my lifestyle and my real estate business that created 10 years ago when the economy changed. You must fight each day and work your plan and stay true to your goals. Everyone on your team must be on the same page, if their motivation is not there and if they don't have the vision, you must let them go, and bring new members on your team that are hungry for s...

"What Would You Do? Racist Realtor"     National Fair Housing Alliance & HUD Investigations Confirm Discrimination! Where's the outcry from the National Association of Realtors? On July 18, 2008, the U.S. Department of Justice filed a federal lawsuit against the real estate brokerage doing business as Re/Max East-West alleging discrimination on the basis of race and national origin in violation of the Fair Housing Act. Re/ Max East-West is a major brokerage company serving DuPage and Cook Counties in Illinois. An undercover investigation of Re/Max East-West was conducted by the National Fair Housing Alliance and the investigation unturned a repeated pattern of racial discrimination among real estate agents in as many as 12 cities. The NFHA found that Re/Max East-West agents time and ...

  Take your dog to the Dog Park on Northview Drive in Bowie MD, and you'll both enjoy it! Bowie residents find that it's a great opportunity to spend some quality time with your pet, for your dog to get some much-needed exercise and socializing with other animals and humans, and for you to socialize with other dog owners, as well.  Folks in Enfield Chase, Allen Pond and Northview can walk to the park with their dogs, but there's plenty of parking - even on a busy weekend day. There are two fenced-in areas at the one-acre park where dogs can run off-leash - a rare pleasure, especially for dogs living in townhomes or condos. The larger area is for general dog play and the smaller one is for small dogs those that are a bit shy.  The park is open 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. daily.   Practice Dog Park ...

  Enjoy a lazy afternoon at Allen Pond with family and friends... or even by yourself.  There's something to be said for "getting away" for a little peace and quiet. Bowie residents love Allen Pond, but it's popular with people in neighboring communities, as well.  Here's why... Allen Pond is an 85-acre park located on Northview Drive, near Bowie New Town Center.  As you can see from these photos, there's a playground - in fact, there are two... one for small tots and another for older children, picnic areas (which can be reserved), an amphitheater, paved walking and biking trails, and a pond you can enjoy from the shore or a rented paddle-boat. This is not the only park in Bowie MD, however.  There are several others, including Acorn Park (Sage Lane and Stonybrook Dr), BlacKsox Park (...
