mrome@homerome Some of the sweetest words I've heard in real estate...Clear To Close! I got that phone call today from the lender. It was not a loan I was worried about but still those are mighty nice words. It doesn't mean that your house is sold but it is certainly reassuring. The first thing I did was call the buyer to explain what this means. The next call was to the seller, who was in the midst of moving. I shared those three words 'Clear To Close" and proceeded to explain why this is an important step in the transaction. The home inspection had been signed off on, the appraisal came in with the value, the funds needed have been verified and closing date has been scheduled. Now there is only the waiting time...less than two weeks. That's when   the sellers will deposit their procee...

 3306 Timberfield Rd  Pikesville 21208 Too Late  This one went lightning fast! It was sold as the sign was placed in the ground. Such a desirable area in  Pikesville beinglocated on a cul de sac, close enough to Pikesville school fields to throw balls every day.  How exciting that this home has everything this lucky family wanted.. the perfect location, four bedrooms on the first floor, big eat in kitchen with adjacent laundry, lower level to finish, a big level backyard and needing enough updating to be in their price range.

 Located at 1427 Reisterstown Rd. right in the heart of Pikesville, is a very very small Deli with great big wonderful treats. It is not a new place. In fact it was opened in 1958 by Marty Lev. And now his warm welcoming daughter, Shelly, makes you feel right at home.     From the homemade chopped liver to the awesome brisket, to the chocolates, to the beautiful custom dairy and deli trays...it is amazing how so much good food can come out of such a tiny space. Take a few minutes, stop in for a treat. The staff is so friendly...you are going to want to stay longer. And it's minutes away from my newest perfect sized condo atThe Pavilion in the Park

     Garages are good selling features in Baltimore. Even though the garage is not true living space, it can and does add value...especially if there is actually room for your cars. We were down to the final touches of getting the house on the market.  In less than 24 hours, we had a clean and inviting garage.  First step: Empty it!Second step: Paint the walls, ceiling and floor!  The 'before' photo above was taken over the weekend.The 'after' was taken today, Monday.This Baltimore rancher with two car garage is ready to go!

  When marketing a home remember everyone looks in closets and garages. Please make sure they are either neat, empty or even staged.  I have some sellers who want to take all the stuff and put it in the garage!  This is their quick way of getting the house ready for the photographer.  NO NO NO!!!   Garages need to be clean to show that it is only for cars. After the listing is signed, we go through the home to see what is needed to make the best first impression. Garages are a wonderful selling feature in Baltimore. Especially with our wide range of temperatures and weather conditions. Either quite hot in the summer, a quick thunderstorm and the possibility of snow and ice later in the season. Careful about storing something for a short time in your garage. That short time is much longe...

 Always want to give my properties as much exposure as possible. However this special home is not quite ready for the photographer. The only shot was of the living room...not a good one, from my cell and I needed an exterior picture for this weekend's ad. I was not near the house and ad deadline was already past. Always have a Plan B. says my friend Carra Riley But remember...you have to have a Plan A in order to go to Plan B!Since I knew the seller's son was at the house, I made a quick call and a plea to take an exterior shot showing the two car garage. Within minutes he texted me a photo. I quickly cropped it and sent it to my advertising person..Not as good as the professional photography, we will be doing in the next week,  but good enough  for a  small color teaser ad. For informa...

I recently went to visit a beautiful home in an established Baltimore neighborhood. In touring the property, I noticed the wood around the bottom window was damaged or maybe that could have been a deliberate design.  How did this happen?Do you have any idea how this design damage occurred? Leave me a message in the comment section below. I will be following the responses.

 I love working in real estate and I have just put name to my reward.....Psychic Income. This is defined as " That wonderful feeling you get by helping others!  Everyone seems to think it is all about the money...how much you make on each transaction or how much you lose on each buyer or seller who does not go to the closing table.Never have any of my careers been driven by money...certainly not as a Registered Nurse or a ceramic artist. Satisfaction is knowing I did a good job that helped a client achieve a goal or that I sold a difficult or unique property. My Lee used to say I worked for thank you notes and there have been many over the years. We all like to be appreciated no matter what our job is.  This week while speaking with a friend and sharing how much we like what we are doin...
