  1476 Lowell Court is UNDER CONTRACT! While it’s certainly not over until settlement, and that’s a challenge these days, UNDER CONTRACT are two sweet words that listing agents like to hear.We love it when a plan comes together. Ready and willing seller, home priced to sell, professional quality photos, internet marketing plan, agent participation, qualified buyer, etc. This home had 14 showing in the two weeks it was on the market. I can assure you that there are buyers who saw the home that are kicking themselves today for waiting.In Crofton, MD, and a lot of other areas of the country, homes that are in good condition, and priced right, aren’t on the market very long.Hunker down Rich, and let’s get this to settlement in June.

Inaugurations, national monuments, parades...  Local residents of the D.C. area tend to take it all in stride and just get out of the way.  I can speak with some authority about this, as a D.C. native and long-time Crofton resident who has never been to an Inaugural parade, who visits national monuments only with out-of-state guests, and who takes it all for granted. We made an impulse decision to hop on the Metro and go downtown to see Rolling Thunder on Memorial Day weekend last year. We're so glad we did!  It's impossible to describe the thousands of motorcycles rolling past each hour.  But we did take a few photos that might inspire you to go downtown and see for yourself tomorrow (Sunday, May 29). The parade route begins at the Pentagon, where riders begin assembling at 7 a.m. and ...

I’m fitting them in as best I can this weekend, but the picking’s for rentals are getting quite slim.The least expensive rental is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo in the Cedar Grove sub-division.

  Maybe, just maybe, in a month or two we’ll be able to get back to comparing statistics in the Crofton, MD real estate market that have a valid comparison. In this industry, and many others, statistics are compared to the same period a year ago. For instance, we would look at real estate statistics for April of 2010, and compare it to April of 2011. Lately, every statistic we’ve seen for the year shows a decrease in real estate sales from 2010.It’s easy to just assume that the real estate market in 2011 is just worse. If there were no extenuating circumstances, it would be. However, it could just be that 2010 was over inflated because of the $8,000 first time buyer tax credit. It was, and there is no real good way to adjust for that when comparing year over year. The $8,000 tax credit...

Crofton First is an organization of concerned citizens in the greater Crofton area who keep their eyes on county zoning and development issues so the rest of us don't have to.     If we're going to go about our own business while they're taking the time to do this for us, the least we can do is listen when Crofton First shares their findings with us.  We owe it to them and ourselves to get involved when push comes to shove (as the saying goes).  One of those moments is NOW!   Here's what's at stake on Monday, May 2, at the regular meeting of the Anne Arundel County Council:  Council Bill #12–11 allows several “up-zones” in the greater Crofton area –  i.e., re-zoning Residential areas along Route 3 to Commercial. Staples Corner, the intersection of Routes 424 and 450. Route 424 before it...

  Yes, there is a point to all that construction at the intersection of Rt. 3 and Johns Hopkins road in the Crofton Gambrills, MD area. Next year some time we’ll begin seeing stores opening at the new Waugh Chapel Town Centre. The original Village at Waugh Chapel is hugely popular, and the store selection in the new development looks like it will keep that tradition.Anchoring the new Waugh Chapel Town Centre will be a Target, Dicks Sporting Goods and Petco, and 55+ condos. Along with those great selections for the area will be a Regal’s Cinema, with a dozen screens and an IMAX theatre. Finally, we won’t have to trek over to Bowie or Annapolis to see a movie.My wife’s personal favorite is going to be Wegman’s, while my personal vote goes to the first movie theatre in the Crofton area for...

The number of Crofton, MD foreclosures for sale has been steadily dropping since late last year. Although Crofton, MD has never been a hotbed of foreclosure activity, there are always some in the inventory for savvy investors, and buyers. The height of foreclosures in Crofton, MD seemed to peak last year at about 13 homes. Today, there are 130 homes for sale in the 21114 zip code, including the 4 foreclosures. Pretty insignificant compared to other communities in the area.As you can see from the map below, we’re down to 4 foreclosures in Crofton. A very decent 4 br, 3.5 ba townhouse in the Knolls section would be a steal at $281,105. At their height, townhouses in the Knolls were approaching $400,000. Of course, you have to visit it to see the current condition.All of the current inven...
