A New Location for El Saltos in Perry Hall, MDWe have been eating at El Salto's Restaurant since, before my youngest son, Liam was born.  I craved Mexican food the whole time I was pregnant and we had been driving to a place in Westminster then El Salto's opened their first location right near our house.  I was in 7th heaven.  Barely anyone spoke English back then and the food was authentic and reasonably priced.  Today, El Salto's has three locations and I tried out their third location last night.  I had a late listing appointment in Perry Hall and Liam had a date so I didn't feel like coming home and cooking dinner just for myself.  I was not disappointed.  This third location is a little more upscale compared to their other locations, the parking plentiful and lots of seating includ...

If You Don't Want to Receive Mass Emails, Why Do You Send Them You know the saying: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."Here are some reasons to not send mass emails: The recipient did not ask for them. The recipient does not care about your offering. It creates information overload, so your information is forgotten anyway. Just because someone looked at your website, or an ad for your product, or whatever does not mean that they are interested in your product forever.  Some mass emailers send the same email day after day after day after day after day . . . I would have to keep repeating this phrase for you to get the idea. Google, facebook, yahoo, boohoo and the rest of the social media sites do not know what people want.  Just consider the real estate sites like zillow...

Mortgage Interest Rates Here is about where the rates stand this week (first week of December 2020) 2.750% for a 30 year fixed rate conventional loan; 2.375% for a 15 year fixed rate conventional loan; and 2.375% for a 30 year fixed rate VA or FHA loan.  To give you more perspective on what this means, you may want to think in terms of how much your monthly payment would be.  For a 30 year conventional loan with a fixed rate of 2.750%, your monthly payment would be $4.08 for every thousand dollars that you borrowed.  So the monthly payment for a $250,000 house would be 250 x $4.08 or $1,020.00.  This includes principal and interest.  It does not include property taxes and property insurance. If this tempts you to think about buying, then contact me so that we can discuss it further or g...

Check Your Spam Folder; It Might Have Something WorthwhileThe other day I prepared an offer for my client.  Before I sent the email off to the listing agent, of course, I had to decide, if I wanted it to go to their primary email folder or to their spam email folder.I doubted that this low ball offer would be accepted so I just checked off for it to go to the listing agent's spam folder.Now, you are probably wondering where is this check box that allows for you to check primary versus spam.Let's back up a moment.  There is no check box that determines whether an email goes to someone's primary email folder or to their spam email folder.Also, I would never give any less effort to any offer that I submitted.This raises a question.  Does anyone send out emails with the intent that they wil...

The Maryland Real Estate Market   Two factors have been making the price of real estate in Maryland rapidly appreciate. One of the factors is mortgage interest rates, which are at historically low levels.  The following shows rates as of October 2, 2020.--- Conventional, 30 year, fixed rate: 2.875%--- Conventional, 15 year, fixed rate: 2.375%--- FHA or VA, 30 year, fixed rate: 2.5% These low rates increase the affordability of buyers such that they can pay higher prices. The second factor is inventory.  The number of homes on the market over the last 3 to 4 years has consistently gone down in monthly year on year comparisons.  Correspondingly, the number of buyers has not shown such a consistent decrease.  Based on the theory of supply and demand, this pushes prices upward. A comparison...

The Corona Virus is not a Computer Virus Of course, everyone knows that the corona virus causes disease in humans, while a computer virus causes disarray in computers.  But what is the point? As it relates to home buying and home selling, while there is a concern about coming into contact with the corona virus and getting sick, the majority of a real estate transaction, from start to finish, is done online where the corona virus has no powers. The primary method to sell most houses in today's market is by advertising the house online.  There are thousands of websites that do just this by being the vehicle for displaying tens of thousands of houses.  The basic information and much more about any given property is found online. The online data for any given property which is for sale will...

My evaluation would let you know what might need to be done in order to meet the basic housing requirements of the loans that most buyers would be using.

Is It Hard To Sell A Two Bedroom House? According to data provided by the U.S. Census Bureau the average number of people occupying a house in the United States in 1850 was just over 5 people. Over the years that average number of people occupying a house has steadily declined. Even during the baby boom, that number was significantly lower at an average of 3.36 people per house as compared to the over 5 average of 1850. Nevertheless, even with declining numbers, if we stopped with these numbers, then we could see how the idea that it is difficult to sell a 2 bedroom house could have developed.  The people could not easily fit into the house. However, that average number has continued to decline such that the average number of people per house had gone down to 2.52 people in 2019. This n...

Outsideless House What is an outsideless house? I am not sure, but apparently they exist, based on what I have seen on the multiple list and some other sites. There it is listed with 30 photos, none of which shows an outside to the house.  Many multiple list sites, by the way, allow for up to 50 photos.  In fact, they state, in their rules for posting houses, that the main photo should be of the exterior of the house. Even a condominium has an outside, although owned as part of an association. But, these outsideless houses are not condominiums. You would think that such a structure would be impossible, however, there are numerous of these new age homes being advertised on the multiple list. Whether a home is a townhouse, a duplex, a quadruplex, or part of an apartment or a condominium c...

Unemployment Rate The unemployment rate has been going down and it is currently at historically low levels. One might presume, and to some extent correctly so, that this is related to the creation of jobs. In recent times, the economy has been adding, on average, just over 205,000 jobs per month. The unemployment rate is easy to calculate. To determine the unemployment rate the number of unemployed people is divided by the number of employed people plus the number of unemployed people and then multiplied by 100 to show it as a percentage. There are people who could be employed, but who are not considered among the unemployed because, for whatever reason, they have taken themselves out of the employment market. The reason for being taken out of the market could be that they have chosen t...
