  Here Are the Pros and Cons to Consider at Becoming a Landlord Thinking About Becoming a Landlord? When you think of a landlord, what comes to mind? A woman or man with a lot of disposable income who also has a lot of claim to the land of their city? A person who has little to worry about other than collecting checks? The truth is far from it. While being a landlord has many benefits, you also have to be prepared to do the work and take the risks associated with such a career. If you are considering getting into the real estate business and becoming a landlord, here are a few pros and cons you need to take into account. Continue Reading

Whether Hagerstown residents are looking for a home equity line of credit, a refi, or a new mortgage, when it comes to getting a loan, everyone knows that it’s the credit score that ultimately determines the outcome. Yet when it comes to a working knowledge of what major factors affect your score, a new survey shows that many of us are less certain than we should be. The Consumer Federation of America is a nonprofit outfit that from time to time releases reports designed to improve that situation. Their latest is a sort of report card on how much average adults understand about credit scoring —  the key factor in getting a loan of any kind. On the plus side of the report card, CFA says that people who have obtained one or more of their own credit scores within the past year are signific...

  Local Mortgage Rates and the Summer Connection  After such a long time remaining at the lowest levels anyone can remember, Hagerstown mortgage rates have been climbing out of the cellar. No one who was paying attention expected them to stay at the almost unbelievably low levels they’d held for more than a year, so that was anything but a surprise. But for Hagerstown home shoppers and sellers, it is the future of mortgage rates that is most important. Because Washington County mortgage rates are the basis by which monthly payments are calculated, knowing what to expect in their movement would enable anyone to make the best decision about whether now is the time to buy or sell — or whether even a short delay might mean the same monthly outlay could buy more house. Experience teaches tha...

When it comes to Hagerstown’s residential real estate outlook, some truisms say it all: “Strike while the iron is hot!” “The early bird gets the worm!” “Time and tide waits for no man…” Sometimes those hoary old clichés have survived because their wisdom doesn’t ever change — and right now, some hard facts and figures may make these more relevant than usual. Hagerstown real estate watchers, buoyed by last Tuesday’s stock market jump (a reaction to the bullish real estate statistics), were also digesting The National Association of Realtors®’ latest report: it carried more cheerful news about the expanding market for existing-home sales. Final numbers for April showed sales moving at the highest pace since November of 2009, which was a single month that spiked due to the home-buyer tax c...

This month’s release of National Housing Data from realtor.com shows yet another rise in list prices, which, as expected, apparently spurred more previously reluctant sellers to put their homes on the market. The pressure to jump on board continued as “the home buying season shifted into high gear…” With more Washington County listings competing for prospects’ interest, one of the features I like to provide for my clients are the increasingly valuable virtual tours. The advantages are many, both for Hagerstown sellers and the prospective buyers they attract. Online marketing has long enabled maximum exposure. Where the audience for a new listing used to be limited to the area reached by local advertising outlets, we now cross state and international borders instantaneously. But what Hag...

If you’ve come across the term "zombie foreclosures" in recent months, it wasn’t referring to voodoo parlors whose priests couldn’t pay the mortgage. Not exactly dead, but not exactly alive, they are properties stuck in a kind of zombie-like limbo. They are homes that have been abandoned by their former owners at some point before foreclosure. Now they are sitting there, accumulating ongoing taxes, liens, and gradual deterioration while the bank decides what to do (or not do) about them. According to RealtyTrac, there are probably 302,000 "zombies” nationwide, so the odds are, some are going to be here. Whenever you search for bank owned properties in Hagerstown, keep an eye out for the zombies. Because the legal owner has moved on, he or she is likely to be highly motivated to sell via...

REO Bargains in Hagerstown Take Thorough Assessment, Hagerstown REO bargains can’t help but catch your eye when you’re searching through the latest residential offerings. Whether you are a future homeowner or an investor looking for an opportunity that makes financial sense, bargain basement prices are hard to skip past. Washington County REO homes (the “REO” is Real Estate Owned, meaning bank-owned) are still being offered at relatively low prices — sometimes, remarkably low prices. But like skilled investors in any realm, successful REO buyers make sure they know why those prices are where they are. In the REO world, the standout factor is this: buying REO means cutting out a proud owner who cares, instead dealing with a bank that wants to sell. It’s a personal pride deficit that inev...

Taking the Leap from Tenant to Hagerstown Homeowner, Each day, any number of tenants see the perfect Washington County house for sale, yet fail to go ahead and investigate further. Making the move from tenant to homeowner is, after all, one of life’s major decisions — so no matter how perfect such a find might be, making the leap can seem daunting. According to the Rental Protection Agency, by last week there were more than 107,000,000 renters in the US — a number that increases by 2,600 a day. In other words, if you are a little unsure about snapping up even the most perfect Hagerstown house for sale, you are hardly alone. Still, there is that nagging suspicion that home ownership brings substantial financial advantages to some people… Fortunately, there are concrete indicators that wh...
