I had my first open house this weekend. It was an experience to say the least.  My only hope is that I will have an opportunity to do another and it go smoother and perform better.  I am a very new agent and am kind of working as an assistant to an established agent until I can learn the ropes and earn my way to working on my own business base.  The agent that I am working with is absolutely awesome and has shown me so much and I feel blessed that she has helped me along.  She had a listing this weekend in which she scheduled an open house and it was understood that I would be the one working it and she would help me get the word out as well as do the flier for the property.  She designed an awesome flier and she had the most and best access for online advertising than I did. She was in...

Fannie Mae is putting a ban on foreclosures and stopping people from walking away, if they actually have the ability to make their mortgage payments.  Unfortunately too many people have taken advantage of a situation in which legitimately thousands are struggling and losing their homes.  Fannie Mae is setting up a policy where it isn't going to be easy walking from an upside down mortgage. How is this going to affect those who really have to walk away and can't afford to make payments on their upside down mortgages? How is this going to affect the loan modification process? My understanding is that they will be banned from obtaining a mortgage for 7 years if they fall under the category of having the ability to pay, but choosing to let the property go to foreclosure.  How does the effec...

Okay this is not necessarily a professional point of view as much as it is just my experience and opinion.  I have owned two homes in my life time and I have rented from private parties two times.  When I looked for a home, the first time with my now ex-husband, he and I both had specific needs that had to be met.  We had a newborn baby and anticipated having more than one child. He was in the music industry, so he needed a space that he could create a studio out of and my want was a garage, fireplace and basement.  He also wanted our mortgage to not be very high.  It was a long search and struggle and we pretty much go what we wanted minus the garage in our home together.  When I was looking for my place without my husband, I wanted at least two bedrooms and an extra space for a home o...

 BUILDING A HOUSE FOR HABITAT FOR HUMANITY IN LUSBY MD What an experience!  I was privileged to participate in "Women Build Day" on May 8, 2010, in Lusby MD.  Habitat for Humanity is a charity that builds houses for those who would not otherwise afford them.  I had always wanted to help with building a house so when there was a request for "women" to participate in in "Women Build Day" I volunteered.  That's me balancing the white, hard hat on my head and contemplating where to hammer in the next nail.  Not only did I help hammer in nails I also helped raise two walls!  Yes there were men present, but there were a lot of women.  They will need help every Saturday for the next three months, so if you feel like building a house for Habitat for Humanity in Lusby Md call Patuxent Habitat fo...

Stop Foreclosure! Pre-Foreclosure Sale, Short Sale, Deed-in lieu, options are available for Southern Maryland Home Owners! Are you having difficulty paying your debt? Fannie Mae is updating some policies for future borrowers to obtain a new mortgage, the "waiting period is changing". Pre-Forclouse Sale, Short Sale, Deed-in lieu,  seems to be a regular part of everyday discussion as I speak to home sellers in the Southern Maryland Real Estate Market. For many home owners in Southern Maryland, the thought of foreclosure, would never be a thought. If you are one of those people who have been hit by the market instability, job loss or hardship, don't throw your arms up. You have better choices than foreclosure!   Fannie Ma - Forclosure,Pre and Inleu of Deed  Some helpful links in Maryland! ...
