  I've been working with a buyer who was referred  to me by a former client.Today we had a very smooth settlement that was done with perfection. We had an efficient coop agent, wonderful appreciative buyers and a very professional title company. Afterward we  celebrated with lunch at a local neighborhood restaurant. Here is the photo of the house we closed on today.  A lovely home in a 55 + neighborhood in Villages At Woodholme. This particular house was perfect for these buyers...every thing they were looking for. It has a first floor master bedroom, gorgeous granite open kitchen, deck, end unit, 2 car garage, 2 more bedrooms and loft upstairs, high ceilings, wood floors, first floor laundry, huge lower level with a full bathroom and tremendous storage. And it is in absolute move in co...

Last week I wrote  about a Unique house and a unique feature.     Below is where this door, above, leads.  Nope, I did not venture down but one of the buyer's agents went exploring with her client and here is the photo she took down in the bunker.This bomb shelter has produced a lot of comments from prospective buyers about how it would be used. I have heard everything from a man cave, a play area, wine cellar, dark room (well yeah it is), extra storage space, a getaway place and I am sure I will hear many more. The sellers used to play down there when they were little kids.With a bit of research, I found this story of a family who found this fully stocked bunker intact. How would you use this space?

                             The housing market in Pikesville, is still quite strong as it was last month.  This is good news for both buyers and sellers in our area.         Good news for sellers because the average Days On Market is down so this means that homes are selling faster than they did this time last year and there is also low inventory.                                                                                                                                                                                                  Good news for buyers because interest rates are still low and there are great programs available for the purchase of a new home.   Average Sale Price: The Average Sales Price in January 2017 was $236,468. The number of properties in this calculation was...

 Think Condos for all ages in Baltimore. Think condo sharing.  Think of roommates but think of purchasing and not renting. Think all ages. We have many classic clients living alone. They are able to take care of themselves but may be lonely.  Think about purchasing together.It could be roommates that are contemporaries...it could also be with differences in age. Think  of the younger person who may be in college or the professional starting out who may not be able to afford a mortgage alone.  Buying a condo together may be a solution. One option is for friends to purchase a property together and a condo could be that home for many people. Who says that condominiums in Baltimore, Maryland have to be for the elderly or more mature retired buyers?  Who wouldn't like a doorman to help with ...

 Downsizing is a word I choose not to use. Rightsizing more accurately describes why people need to move. They may actually need a bigger space or different uses of space. It may be to have room for guests and family to visit. It may be room needed for accessibility.    Look around at the big house you have called home for many  years. How much of the house are you really using? Many people only use a small percentage of the house...maybe just a few key rooms. When making the decision to move, it is those important spaces  you need in the new place. You can still have a gourmet kitchen. You can still have a dressing room. You can still have a patio or balcony. You can still have a guest room that also serves as a den or office.You can still have garage parking.You might have more amenit...

  Color makes beauty.Some people have a knack for  making things beautiful.  This afternoon I enjoyed a house warming party for a  former client.....now a good friend.  I really appreciate how much she enjoys entertaining friends in her perfect new space. Just look  at this delicious, pretty and colorful table.    The guests were also colorful ,very interesting and the conversation flowed. Perfect time for a party...the holidays are over and the temperature outside was 18 degrees.  ººThe warmth of friendship filled this new home! What a perfect day for a house warming in Baltimore!

 It has been another wonderfully busy week. On Friday, I submitted an offer for special buyers. There has been some email and text exchanges.. even over this  holiday weekend. This, however, did not stop me from spending quality time with good friends and family... or from doing the live radio show today.   Just received a text from the listing agent with this message "How late can I call you...?  My quick response"With good news, there is no time limit!"  Now I ask you..."Will I get a call tonight?"

 There are many times when a buyer is looking for the rare, hard to find, 3 bedroom condo in Baltimore. That extra bedroom is needed for occasional out of town company. We have a wonderful solution in one of the condos I have on the market. Have it both ways by making one room do double duty. Take a look at this example of a Murphy bed wall system. Perfect solution... don't you think?    photo used with permission www.pacificcustomdesign.com  When the large bed is folded into the wall, this custom design is perfect for an office...even has the perfect desk. Check out the built in "night stands" and storage. Thinking about finding that special homeCall Margaret Rome

  How lucky I am to be invited to share the New Year with clients who are now friends. The food, the friendship, the art... all beautiful.   My friend Jean bought a lovely home less than a year ago and I love the way she has used her art and color to make this place warm and welcoming.   Jean has a wonderful comforting personality just like my friends, the two good looking guys, Jim and Dan.   It was a lovely evening and Jean made it seem effortless. That is the sign of a perfect hostess.

 On today's radio show I had a caller who asked .. 'Is this a good time to get into real estate?' He said he had a license back in 2008 when the market 'tanked' ( his word). Recently unemployed, he is thinking about getting back into the business. I answered him with a couple of questions.How did you do 8 years ago?He said he was only doing it part time but he loved the business and loved going into houses. My response..If you have the passion, the fire in the belly and the drive to learn to work hard...it is always a good time to get into real estate!   Do you have some funds saved to live on for the first year? He has limited funds due to his situation.My response Working another job does not give you the opportunity to take classes, go to seminars, learn how to blog, shadow another s...
