  Odenton, MD Real Estate Recap for April 2011 Real Estate stats are often compared to the previous years data to gauge the direction the market is going.  However, we have to keep in mind we had a first time home buyers government tax credit in effect last year.  If you look at the numbers compared to last year, at first glance you might panic and think things have really dropped off.  While it is true we aren't seeing the boom bolstered by the tax credit last April, if you look to 2009's data, you will see we are still right on course.  61 Odenton homes were listed for sale in April of 2011; compared to 85 the previous April and only 55 in April of 2009.  With the extension of the tax credit until June last year, many of my neighbors were inspired to join in the fray and list while th...

How About A Foreclosure?   Earlier this year I received a phone call from a Mom who was helping her daughter with the process of purchasing her first home. Within days we met for our initial buyer consultation. I always feel it is important to get to know who you are planning on working with, to learn what is important to them, how to best proceed and to let them know how I work. All went well and we were off on our home search within days of that meeting.We went out 3 separate times and looked at 5-6 homes each time. Just enough so Mom and daughter could digest what they saw, discuss and choose their top 3 choices of the day. On the third day out there was no denying that when we walked into the home you see here that this was the one.   Located in the Odenton community that was her to...

People have been asking me what the clearing off of Waugh Chapel Road in Odenton, Md. near Chapel Grove is being done for.  The area that is being cleared is actually Chapel Grove Phase 7.   Winchester wanted to finish and get out of the community a few years ago when the market took a down turn.  They decided that they did not want to develop the last phase of the community and instead sold the land.  There is only going to be one cul-de-sac there with 7 building lots.  All of the lots will be approximately 1/4 acre and they will all back to woods.   As of this post, I am not aware of what builder will actually be building the homes on the lots when they are complete.  Rumor has it that it will in all likelihood be a national builder who will build homes that should sell in the $600,00...
