 Out and About Loving Annapolis  Hardesty Estates in Davidsonville 21035 Named after the builder who developed this community Hardesty Estates has been around since about 1969. Located between Rt 214 and Riva Rd in Davidsonville, Hardesty Estates offers 149 homes nestled among rolling countryside.  With street names of Manassas, Appomattox, Sharpsburg, Petersburg, to name a few, one would have to believe  the builder had a love for the Civil War. But whatever the reason for the street names Hardesty Estates is a comfortable, tree lined community within easy commuting distance to Washington DC, Annapolis and Baltimore.Homes are situated on lots ranging in size from just under an acre to almost 3 acres and homestyles are remincesant of the 1970 style of  ranchers, split foyers and Colonia...

DAVIDSONVILLE MD 21035 After a dismal August, when there were no closings at all, real estate statistics for Davidsonville can only get better this month.  Fortunately, this is not the whole picture because five homes did go under contract in August (3 non-contingent, 2 contingent). Off-setting that gain, however, are seven new listings in this zipcode. Real estate activity in Davidsonville is already looking up in September, with one closing so far this month.  That may not seem like a lot, but anything is an improvement over August, and three homes have gone under contract since September 1 with more than a week to go. Since there's so little activity in Davidsonville, it's probably helpful to consider this community together with Lothian and other rural communities in Southern Anne A...

Out and About Loving Annapolis   Having been born in Annapolis and raised in a waterfront community just outside the city limits I grew up where visits were of the human kind. As years passed and I moved a few times around the Annapolis area the most I ever found as a non normal visitor was a dog or cat or two. And then 10 years ago I moved to Davidsonville. A beautiful area 20 minutes from Annapolis where the land meets the sky, where acres of soy beans and wheat are grown, where horses dot the landscape along with cows and sheep and where homes are nestled on acres instead of square feet.    The visitors here have been quite interesting and seem to change with the seasons or the years. My first year visitors were peacocks. Seems there is a peacock farm behind me and during mating seas...

  Out and About Loving Annapolis       Annapolis Communities...Harbor Hills in Davidsonville 21035       Located on a treed country road on the edge of Davidsonville is a wonderful gem of a community called Harbor Hills. What makes Harbor Hills unique is that it is the only Davidsonville community that is considered a waterfront community.  the 188 homes in Harbor Hills are nestled among trees and surrounded with a park like beauty that only an older community can give.

His dream was to build a community that offered a yacht club. Thus the streets were named with a nautical theme of ships that made ...

May wasn't quite as good as April for real estate in Davidsonville, but I'm not complaining.  Home sellers and buyers can both find something in this chart to make them smile! Home Sellers:  The best news we’re seeing on this chart of real estate activity for May 2011 in Davidsonville, Maryland, is the “Average Days on Market.”  No matter how you look at it – comparing it with last month (April 2011) or last year (May 2010) - the number is down.  That’s certainly reason for homeowners to celebrate. It’s disappointing that both the average and median sold prices are down, and the number of closed sales is down.  But we have to celebrate that homes sold last month went at full price.  That’s an increase over last month and last year in Davidsonville, and probably higher than any zipcode ...

Davidsonville Real Estate Market Improved April, 2011 - Davidsonville, MD (21114) Closed sales and prices were up for Davidsonville last month, compared to April 2010.  While homes were on the market a long time (224 days), that’s down almost 25% from sales a month earlier. What do these numbers this mean to you? Current homeowners should be encouraged by real estate activity last month, because each of the critical categories reported here have shown improvement in the Month on Month comparison, and prices were up over April 2010.  The artificial influence of the first-time homebuyer tax credit last year had little or no impact on Davidsonville, since most homes in this zipcode are not priced in the right range for a typical first-time home buyer.

Davidsonville MD Real Estate Market Update (21035)January 2011   Real Estate Activity was UP during January 2010 over January 2009 in Davidsonville, Maryland, as evidenced by an increase in sold/settled and listings, although new contracts gives us some pause for concern. Unfortunately, the average days on market were much higher measured both Year on Year and Month on Month, but higher-end homes often take longer to sell than modestly priced homes.  And I think most home sellers would happily wait a little longer if it meant the percentage of average sold price to average list price would increase by almost 2%. What do all these numbers mean to you?  Home Sellers:  There's good reason to be optimistic because Davidsonville real estate activity is up and prices are relatively stable.  T...

Davidsonville MD Real Estate Market Update (21035)December 2010 HOMESELLERS: The best news I saw last month for home sellers in Davidsonville MD in this 5-year chart of real estate statistics was "no new listings".  Yet 3 homes sold/settled and 3 others went under contract.  Any time the inventory remains steady or goes down, as it did in December, that's good news for home sellers.  Still, at 3 home sales per month, the absorption rate is not favorable to home sellers.  It would take more than a year to sell all of today's active listings - and only if no other new listings coming on the market throughout the year.  Of course, that's an unlikely scenario. This is no market for greedy home sellers.  Home buyers look for homes in 5-star condition, loaded with updated features, and bargai...

  Mum’s the word at the Homestead Gardens Fall Festival being held this weekend. This could be your last chance to pick up some Mum’s at a great price, before Homestead changes over to their Christmas display. 3 for $15 if you have a Garden Club membership is a very good price for Mum’s from one of the area’s premiere gardens. During festivals like this you can stop at the Homestead Grill for burgers, hot dogs and pulled pork or beef sandwiches. Homemade apple cider and coffee can ward off the chill on an Autumn day. The Fall Festival starts at 11 AM and runs until 4 PM on both Saturday and Sunday, October 23 and 24. Besides the Mum’s and Pumpkins, Homestead Gardens has started their fantastic Christmas display and some items are available for sale. Can’t wait for Spring…you can pick up...

Out and About Loving Annapolis     It's Fall...Let The Hayrides Begin Ok... I admit it...I am a four season type of gal and living in Annapolis offers some of the prettiest four seasons around. One of my favorite seasons of them all is Fall. The air is crisp and the nights are cool..a huge welcome from the blistering heat of summer. Yes the days are getting shorter but the beautiful evening sky makes up for those few lost minutes of summer heat. Yes fall is definitely one of my favorite times of the year.Fall offers many opportunities to get out and about and one of my favorite places to take the young and not so young in the family is Knightongale Farm. Located right on the corner of Rt 2 and Birsdville Rd in Davidsonville MD, Knightongale Farm is just a short hop south of Annapolis.Of...
