Monetize the Mansion   A few real estate trends: BiggerRemember when they were building bigger, better houses just because they could. The desire was for square footage, more garages, more land, and more bathrooms.  Smaller The trend went to saving resources, moving to the city, smaller places, giving up the car, walking to grocery, movie, and theatre.  Open concept  Thanks to reality TV, the open concept has been popular. Get rid of the walls. Make the house look open; all rooms lead together so you can really enjoy the space.  It's now the end of 2020 There is some different thinking in these challenging times.The big homes are once again being sought. Let's consider these spacious houses and who would be the buyers. Who is moving out of the city? Who is moving out of the condo?Do you...

  Yesterday was the final settlement, and Debbie has the keys to her new home.  Thanks to the help of a lot of folks, we went to closing even during these challenging times. Having buyers and sellers who are kind and considerate certainly helped. This condo is a beauty, perfect for Debbie with hardwood floors, a gourmet kitchen with granite, recessed lights, stainless appliances, and a three-sided fireplace. There are beautiful views from the balcony and all rooms overlooking trees. Covered parking with two deeded spaces, this condo building is loaded with amenities. There is a movie theater, tennis, pool, gym, a coffee bar, an elegant lobby, a library, meeting rooms, and office space with computers.

 Are you a relocation buyer who has not found that perfect home or has not sold their current home yet?  Maybe you are building and need to lease for a while?  Do you need to start work in Baltimore and need a luxury home for lease?Do you need an interim home? The home that is for sale at 25 Highfield CT 21030 is offering a one year lease for the upper or lower level of this seven thousand foot home or a rent with an option to purchase. The home is for sale, but the sellers would be happy not moving for a year or so. They do travel quite a bit, and this home has a fantastic amount of privacy for more than one family. Of course, you can purchase this luxurious home, but in the meantime, the seller is open to renting an upstairs apartment with one garage space and a lower level. Both have...

                      Another Baltimore Restaurant...Carrabba's Found a new favorite restaurant when taking my sellers out after a recent settlement. Their choice of where to dine and since we were already in the Hunt Valley area they suggested Carrabba's.                                                          What a good choice! The pastas homemade, salads were fresh, all the dishes were delicious, served with care and looked and tasted so yummy. So busy enjoying the company, I forget to take photos of the food. No problem. I just went back to the open kitchen and the staff was glad to accommodate by 'posing' the dishes.                       Another Baltimore Restaurant...Carrabba's.                                                                         Search All Active Listimgs

  Last Saturday I drove out to the splendor of Hunt Valley to observe the Maryland Grand National Steeplechase race. I had been gifted with a ticket, so I persuaded a fellow Realtor friend to give up an afternoon of showing houses to take in the races while we enjoyed a picnic.                      Steeplechasing (as it is called) has a long history in Baltimore County. Steeplechase races originated from competitions between various fox hunting clubs in the third quarter of the 19th century. As the photo shows, this group takes their heritage seriously replete with costume and pagentry.       The race grounds are in fact part of a large family estate. The horses run a course that takes them around the large family house, at times disappearing from view as the announcer broadcasts the up...

 What Do You Put in a 2  1/2 Car Garage? It is listed as a 2.5 Car Garage?What does that mean? A two and a half car garage? Do they make half cars?  If they did which half would you park?                                                                                                                                                              Would I show  this half?                                                                                   A 2.5 car garage could have two automatic doors or  three like 1 Clipping Tree Lane . A two and a half garage has ample space for two normal sized cars and then extra space for the golf cart, the riding mower, the motorcycles, the bikes, the extra freezer, the toys and all the other things we tend to store in our beloved garages.              ...

Another HomeRome Listing Sold in Greencroft at 1 Clipping Tree Lane This wonderful two story contemporary was listed the beginning of February. This is a home that I really love. The sellers were fabulous getting ready for showings, making it look so easy. Each time I went to meet buyers and agents, the house was perfect. The lights were on, the windows were opened and it was immaculate. It was hard to believe a family of four, including 2 exquisite little boys, could possible live there. When selling a house you have to do more that the 3 P's. Putting it on the MLS, Putting a sign in the ground and Praying.  A few blogs were posted about the community  10 Reasons to Live in Greencroft  and weekly Color print advertising to get the word out.  Our  showings started within the week and wh...

                 Do Not Show the Toilet...Unless It's a Royal Flush!                      We have talked about not showing photos of the toilet in our MLS. That's a no no. No one wants to see the inner workings of your bathroom. There is a time when we do need to share this information. That is when the owner has put put in high end Japanese toilets found in luxury homes. There is news about celebrities installing Toto toilets so I guess if national news can report on this subject so can we. The property at 1 Clipping Tree Lane   has Toto toilets, not in one but in all four bathrooms! Just google Toto and you will see that out of 1200 reviews, it is the best by far..maybe also the most expensive. I just read a post by Cameron  The Buyer Walked Because The Toilets Weren't Just Right??? ...
