It’s a bit complicated, selling a home in Howard County. Although you can make a case for the feasibility of doing the whole thing yourself, there are enough areas of knowledge where experience, expertise, and even licensure are recommended that few would ever try it.   At the end of the day, selling a Howard County home is a true team undertaking. And you’re the one selling a home, so you’re Captain. In addition to interviewing and selecting the Howard County real estate agent you will be working with, there are other professionals you should plan to engage as well. Here’s who and why:   The Inspector It’s quite a good idea to have a professional inspection performed at your property before selling a home.

There is encouraging news for some prospective homeowners with a Howard County foreclosure in their recent past: more common sense seems to have entered the picture.   The financial crisis that began in 2007 caused global disarray: across the U.S. (and Howard County was no exception), large numbers of responsible homeowners were clobbered by the fallout, often finding their incomes suddenly reduced or even obliterated as business cutbacks and closings reverberated through the economy.   The Howard County foreclosure rate jumped as a direct result—and it’s taken quite a while for the effects of that to work through the system. But even after the economy has resumed something like normal activity, more than a few local residents have found themselves having to deal with how a Howard Count...

    YOU SHOULD SELECT A LOCAL REALTOR TO LIST YOUR HOWARD COUNTY HOME- 4954 COLUMBIA RD APT #1 | COLUMBIA, MD 21044   Pricing a home that is ready to be listed is not a science, but more a combination of local home data and understanding the local market. A potential listing agent can dissect all of the past sold homes that they think compare to your home till they are blue in the face, but does that mean they will get it right?   They can do a price CMA, a tax assessed CMA or even a square footage CMA but if they don't know the neighborhood, the area, the amenities and the school districts well enough in Howard County, then the margin of error is increased. REAL ESTATE IS LOCAL!In the current Real Estate climate the Howard County, MD market is HOT.  Sizzling hot! Buyers want to live in...

mmmm.. the smell of freshly baked bread. It's mouth-watering delicious. Just stepping into the Great Harvest Bread Company in Columbia, MD, I was sold. I wanted to try it all, the Honey Whole Wheat, the Woodstock (with sunflower and flax seeds, walnuts, pecans), the Old fashioned White, the chocolate bliss cookie ... The thing is, at the Great Harvest Bread Company you can in fact have it all. Sample the bread of the week, a cookie, a scone. They actually encourage you to. Buttered and all. Just be forewarned, it will not make your decision about which freshly baked bread to buy and take home any easier. The wheat is freshly milled at the store and the bread baked right there and then. You can taste the freshness in every bite! At Great Harvest Bread Company they are keeping it simple w...
