What is the best day of the week to list your house?  According to National Association of Realtors® Thursday and Friday are the most popular days based on 2014 statistics. If the top 25 Listing Dates hold true (or close depending on how the calendar day patterns work out) all top 25 listing dates are ahead of us!   Incase you are curious, April & May are the most popular listing months. No real surprise there. Spring brings excitement of all things new, warmer temperatures and more sunshine often accompanies a large buyer pool in search of their new home.   Spring and Daylight savings time are just 6 weeks away. On  March 3, 2015 we will spring our clocks forward an hour and possibly have crocus, tulips  and daffodils emerging from a thawing earth.     Don’t wait for your blooms to sho...

Buying a house in any Maryland County, you should understand Latent defects.   Latent defects are hidden problems in workmanship or material that can cause failure or malfunction of the structure or systems.   The real estate 101 book definition says “A latent defect is defined as material defects in real property or improvement to real property that cannot be seen by careful visual inspection or would pose a threat to the health or safety of the buyer, occupants, tenant or guest of the buyer.”  For example: in an older home, a hole in the original ceiling, caused by a small hole in the roof, covered by a drop ceiling.  Water in the basement during a heavy rain.   It is  important to have a home inspection and check the disclosure statements of the seller before buying a house.

According to NAR, 73% of sellers say they would list with a real estate agent that would use video to market their property. Since video shows up on page one of Google and over 100 Million people watch online video each day, there are many real estate agents that have seen the results and use video to show off the home for buyers searching online. Unfortunately, many more real estate agents are not using this tool. YouTube is the 2nd largest search engine in the world. YouTube is the THIRD most visited website in the world! The average website visit without video is 50 seconds and the average website visit with video is over 5 minutes. Consumers prefer video and real estate listings can be irrelevant if we are not talking in the language they prefer. We are invisible if the consumer can...
