These days we all want instant everything.  From our Internet connections, to our cell phones connecting right away and answers to our questions should have been five minutes ago.  We are in tune and on the move.  But what about an emergency?  Bad weather?  Storms coming, you know we have had a few tornadoes in this area in the last few years.  They are so rare, but if one was coming wouldn't you want to know?  How about a tree down blocking a road after a storm.  What about a water main break that stops traffic.  These are inconveniences, but wouldn't you like to know before hand?  Sure you would.  Remember how scary 9/11 was here in Maryland?  Being right next to the Nation's Capital, what a scary and traumatic day it was for all of us.  Now we were not set up back on 9/11, but rest a...

This is the season for family and friends.  Please don't forget about the folks who are less fortunate in our community.  This has been a difficult time for many.  We need to pull together as a community to make sure no one is forgotten.

Wishing everyone a Happy Halloween.  The local weather in Gaithersburg  is supposed to be good for trick or treaters.    I hope to see all the kids, big and small out celebrating.  I will be taking pictures at my home in Darnestown.  Most of the kids head up to the Kentlands to trick or treat.     I think some kids think it is too much work to come to Darnestown where all the houses are on 2 acre lots or more.  The Kentlands have smaller lots and they get a bigger bang for the buck.   If you have photos that you would like to share, please email them to me and I will post them on my blog to share with everyone. Stay safe, have fun, see you tomorrow.  I will have my cameral waiting for you!!   You can email your photos to AudreyForshey@gmail.com

The following information is compiled from our sales provided to the MRIS system.  You can see that a total of 60 units sold for the month.  18 of the properties sold within the first 30 days of being on the market. The good news is the dollar volume for the month of September is up 48% from September of 2007.  The average sales price is down from from $485,000 to $420,000.  The other number I think is important for consumers to pay attention to is the percentage of the price sold to the price asked for a home.   In 2007 sellers got almost 95% of the asking price as a contract price and in 2008 that is down to 92.55% Please let me know if you have questions in regard to this information.  You may contact me at Audrey@audreyjune.com  or my office direct  301-921-2672 .

A young single mom was referred to me for help on refinancing her mortgage that she had with a private lender, and it is a good thing that she came to a professional.  Prior to contacting me, she applied through one of the big National lender (now the biggest lender in the Country), but after 2-3 months of lack of response from them she was finally told that they could not do her loan.  She had a tough situation-about a year ago she went through her second divorce and almost lost her house which she'd owned for 9 years.  She fell behind on everything, had 4 children, child support and divorce case tied up in Court, was paying 14.99% on a mortgage to a private lender which did not include her taxes and insurance.   She really wanted to get a new loan but after going to the National lende...
