 I do love 'thank you' notes whether handwritten, emailed, text or online.   Here is one that came in this week   ''Highly likely to recommend.Bought and sold a home in 2019Margaret came highly recommended and totally met our expectations. From the very beginning, we felt very comfortable with Margaret. She explained in detail the entire process she would use to sell our home and find our new home. Margaret knew exactly when to put our house on the market. In fact,  she sold our house in 2 days! Margaret was very responsive to all our questions and was with us every step of the way. She ensured that all deadlines were met in a timely manner. Margaret was able to find the perfect condominium for us! She is an excellent realtor and we highly recommend her.''   And I do have the very best ...

 Received this email this morning.  "A neighbor told me that houses on her street are not selling. What are your thoughts?"   This is someone who has been sitting on the fence for years whether to sell or stay in her home.As you can see, they ask everyone seeking the "right" answer opinion. How would you answer?   And my response:Some houses sell in minutes some others don’t.Depends on the property, the condition, the seller, the motivation, the pricing, the agent, the exposure, the inventory, the market, the advertising and more.Not so sure the neighbor is the right expert to listen to. When you are ready for answers... talk to a professional REALTOR®  If you want to sell your homeCall Margaret Rome

Today we went to closing on another Pikesville Condo. This two bedroom, two baths 4th-floor unit never hit the market. We were able to get in before it hit the MLS. How? I announced on my live radio show my buyer's need for a condo in this building. And a caller after the show let me know there was one going on the market and gave me the owner's name and number. That was on a Sunday afternoon. By 10:00 PM on that same Sunday, we had a signed contract.    And today, 35 days later, we went to closing. Happy buyers and happy sellers and...Another Pikesville Condo SoldThinking about buying or selling a homeCall Margaret Rome

 A perfect home to consider.This is an idea I got from Barbara Todaro's  comment on my last post.  Forty years ago,  Barbara had a three family home listed and sold it to 3 young couples all of whom wanted home ownership but none could do it individually. That three family home got them into the real estate game, and they sold three years later with money for a down payment on three individual dwellings.    Three levels, three kitchens Baltimore County Rancher This property is an excellent opportunity for so many today who may not be able to buy a home alone. But by combining incomes, purchasing together would be able to have a chance to get equity in real estate, save on rent, and live in a multifamily home for a short time — a great way to get into the real estate game.Another way to ...

 This past week we went to settlement on a Grey Rock Condo.   This morning I received the following: ''Margaret, Paula and I want to thank you again for the outstanding and effective marketing and selling of our condo. We saw first hand how you never passed up an opportunity to show the property and went above and beyond by converting a casual neighbor's interest into a sale. The neighbor was a life long renter who probably never saw themselves as owners. You pursued them, did the math to show how they could afford to buy and then connected them with a lender so they could in fact be a homeowner. So now you have a thrilled first-time homeowner and a very satisfied seller all in one transaction. Good job and well done.There are many moving parts to a real estate sale some need to be done...

Realtors® sell homes. But occassionally we deal with other things to help buyers and sellers. Lately those items are pianos. Three of them...three solutions. One is free just come and pick it up.  The second one the buyer was delighted it was included in the sale of the house. The seller was relieved not to have to move it.  The third is For Sale'Boston Grand Piano GP-178Beautiful, well maintained, gently used, climate-controlled, Mahogany Polished, Boston GP-178 Grand Piano and piano bench, purchased new 20 years ago for $19,000.  Selling due to need to downsize in move to smaller quarters.  A piano technician, well known at Peabody, has tuned the piano twice a year since its purchase. The current price for a new one is over $34,000.  Although we have seen the same model in Black Satin...

  This week I wrote a post about a sale that was contingent on natural gas being brought into a home. The buyer would not move forward without knowing  this kind of  cooking was available. There were a lot of calls made by the buyer and the agent without any solution. I posed this question on my radio show and got excellent advice from callers both during and after show.    Call BGE ask for  'new service' and request a 'site review'. It is easier and saves time for the present owner to make these arrangements. In the next  ten days the owner is meeting a contractor at the property to evaluate and install the gas meter. This will take away the one little contingency that was important to the buyer. And after settlement, the buyer can have her new gas stove installed. Problem solved. Peop...

This may be the perfect Baltimore County Condominium...but only if you are not in a hurry. There will be a three bedroom, top floor, plus den in The Highlands. The seller needs a bit more time for their new home to be ready.      This beauty has three bedrooms plus a den and is filled with luxury...wood floors, granite kitchen, breakfast room, top floor views, balcony, tray ceilings, bright windows and more!   This may be the one but only if you can wait.Please call for information

  Yesterday they called for snow and I called for an impromptu open house.It was a  brand new listing and we had agents who wanted to get in before the sellers were ready. There were things to do before the public could see it.  Clearing the basement, checking the systems, contractors for repairs, touching up, cleaning, purging,  and donating to Second Chance.This house was not going on the market until April. The word got out and the owners were getting direct calls to see the home prior to being officially listed. We sped up the process. Put a rush on the professional photos, went live, and had immediate requests for appointments. We scheduled Sunday 2:30-3:30 and a one hour impromptu open house was posted in the MLS. It was announced on my 12 noon radio show.  Arrived at the studio, ...
