Easier than asking the neighbor When you buy a home in Baltimore County, it's pretty common to ask the seller or the neighbors about the trash schedule. There is a simpler way.  Go to Baltimore County, It's easy to put in your address and find when waste, recycling, and yard clippings are picked up.   When asked when is the trash day, there is no need to ask the neighbors.At least...not in Baltimore County. Do you know about trash pickup days in your neighborhood?

 Living in a home for many years, we tend to not look at it the same way. Maybe we go into a side door off the kitchen or go straight into the garage. I suggest you stop. Look at your house from the street. Can you even see it? Is it overgrown? Is it still inviting?   Look at the walkway, the front door, the mailbox, the yard, the garage doors, the shrubbery. We are talking by drive by and curb appeal.Remember that old saying; you only get one chance to make a first impression. When listing a home, I ask the owner to walk around their house with me. How do the windows look? The gutters?  Condition of trees? The siding? What does a buyer see when they first drive by or approach your main entrance?This is a good exercise even if you are not quite ready to sell.If the yard has been neglect...

   New listings, multiple showings, and promises of offers are not for an amateur.  Sizing up seven showings,Sizing up the agent,  sizing up the buyer, and sizing up the motivation of both is crucial. There are some smooth talkers. Are you listening? Who has requested disclosures? Who has verbally "convinced" you of an imminent forthcoming offer. How you handle the "Do you already have offers." "When are you presenting contracts." "We'll have our offer in before 10 pm." "My buyers love the house already lost another" "Our terms will be cash, non-contingent, with $200K EMD, and flexible dates for the seller to vacate.'' Sounds wonderful.  Remember, in Real Estate, if not in writing, not signed and initialed by all ...it is NOT a contract. Please don't be naive, don't count your chickens ...

 It's not a typical Baltimore County home.Oh, it's pretty enough from the outside, a brick rancher with a double driveway.  But then you enter into a Jay Jenkin's designed interior.   Mid Century Modern Design. Great use of space and space planning. A bright, gourmet custom kitchen makes use of every inch: Viking gas cooktop, double ovens plus a warming drawer, granite counters, and backsplash.   A disappearing sliding glass wall opens into the curved wall Sunroom addition with a second kitchen and room for a hot tub. Sixteen-foot ceiling with seven skylights and half penny tile flooring... this is a terrific space!  Originally four-bedrooms, now three since the master is a two-room suite with a luxury marble bath, heated floors, and walk-in dressing room and closet.   A dream lower lev...

They do this in resort towns and for vacation homes. But not so much with traditional sales. So what is it they do?  They sell their homes furnished, turn-key, move-in ready.  Bring your clothes, toothbrush and start living. You know, kind of like renting a home when vacationing. But who does that? We all are so attached to our stuff. Just for fun,  Google 'George Carlin Stuff.'   You have spent years and years of looking for the right items just perfect for your home. Now it's time to sell. Are you going to try and fit those same items, all custom pieces for this home, into your new home? What if you sold it furnished? Think about the many ways of saving. Not just in your monetary costs, but also time, convenience, physical and emotional!  - Save the significant packing and get out the...

   There are times when showing a home, and the buyers are only concerned about their existing furniture being a perfect fit in the new home. They walk through the house with a tape measure and a list of their belonging.  The question' will this fit' is repeated in each room.Here's something for you to ponder. You've lived in your home for many years. Furnished just the way you like, the right pieces for all the right spaces. Now it's time to move to a new home. It could be out of state. It could be from the big house to a big condo or townhouse. It could be a condo to a  bigger new home etc. There is a frenzy' will it fit in my new space,' can't buy that house because our custom furnishing is too bulky, too tall, or won't make it up the stairs. You are now purchasing a home, not for yo...
