Staging a home for sale is an important tool to increase buyer interest, greatly helping a buyer to visualize the house as their “home”. To totally stage a home may not be a possibility for some sales, but there are instances where virtual staging is a great option.Virtually staging a home can be used to address situations where there may be a room, or a few rooms that are empty. Or perhaps, maybe there are rooms where the flexibility of how the room can be used should be promoted, such as bedroom or office. There are also sometimes rooms that really could use a refreshed look as to how they are decorated. Possibly there is a deck that doesn’t have furniture. Virtual staging could be used to create an inviting outdoor space.Even though “it’s just furniture”, I feel that “virtual staging...

As with any home sale, sellers should select an agent that is knowledgeable about their community, however, knowledge of condo and homeowners associations and community amenities is very important to a successful sale where applicable.Buyers will likely have many questions that the listing agent should be prepared to answer prior to contract which will prevent issues mid-contract and give buyers confidence. Some examples of important considerations for sellers as to how the lifestyle for their home is presented with the listing are:- How much are the fees and what services and amenities are covered by the fees?- Parking - how many parking spaces, if applicable? Is parking assigned after settlement or does it convey as part of the deed, and if so, what parking space?- Are there vehicle t...

Bright MLS has a feature that tracks the Home Demand Index (HDI) per zip code in Calvert County. The Calvert County HDI for January 2023 is 75, falling in the "slow" range. While the "slow" characterization is not surprising given how the real estate market in general is being reported, as well as the interest rate situation and low inventory giving buyers limited choices, there are bright spots in the numbers. One of the most noteworthy revelations when taking a look at this index is that when comparing to the index a year ago, the index is still higher in the majority of the zip codes in the county. With several zip codes in the "steady" and " moderate" range, it paints an overall stable picture for the Calvert County market.  Also, there are zip codes showing increases since late fal...

The past year has exposed major shifts in the real estate market with consumers considering moves with reasons for those moves being very different from previous years. In the past relocation for jobs, retirement, and being closer to family have been common reasons for moving. Those reasons are certainly relevant in this market, but in the past 14 months, living space desires have seen considerable changes, as well as working at home has revealed that “get-a-way” type properties are viable full time living options, and are major additional factors driving the real estate market. Continued low interest rates also have contributed greatly to the accelerated real estate market activity. Most importantly, the Pandemic has shown us that “change” is truly only a moment away. “Adapt” is certai...

The Pandemic has undeniably changed the real estate market in ways that no one anticipated affecting buyer preferences. With so many working from home and learning virtually in various combinations, the obvious result has been buyers wanting larger homes with spaces to accommodate the flexibility needed for that functionality. The popularity of open floor plans has shifted somewhat to more specific living, working, and learning spaces. Interestingly, due to more time being spent at home, buyers are looking for luxuriously appointed areas of the home, kitchens and baths in particular. First, buyers seek the upgrades to make their lives more comfortable and spending more time at home more enjoyable. An interesting revelation with kitchens, though, is that not only the more traditional foc...
