Bank Owned Properties in Rockville MD. . "Foreclosures in Rockville MD" Where are the best Foreclosures deals in Rockville Maryland?  ! I got this question from one of my subscribers the other day. .  also in the same sentence he asked. . “Can I get a good deal if I buy a foreclosure and is now a good time?”  The answer depends on what do you perceive to be a great deal? If you are thinking a great deal is finding a condo for $50,000 in Rockville Maryland  My answer is simple KEEP DREAMING. As a Realtor that specializes in Foreclosures, I get the phone calls early in the morning from people that just finished watching an infomercial at 3AM  about buying foreclosures for .30 cents on the dollar! There is no such a thing in Montgomery County. .  If I find a property for $90,000 that is w...

As REALTORS®, we have a tremendous responsibility and opportunity to educate the public about how to operate a home so it is energy and resource efficient. We really need to take green courses so we can catch up with the public and be able to fulfill our professional obligations. Armed with this knowledge we can learn how to communicate with certain buyers who are very conscious of green practices, energy efficiency, and reducing toxins. I am currently going through the on line RE/MAX Satellite training for "NAR Green Designation". While taking the course, I found the following statistics very alarming: "According to "U.S. Green Building Council",  in the USA alone, buildings account for: 70% of electricity, 39% of all energy use,  39% of all (CO2) emissions,  40% of raw materials use, ...

Should you go condo?. ..or just go for a more traditional single family home? If you are in Rockville Maryland . .consider the Pros and Cons  before deciding what to buy Rockville MD . . thinking of moving? Condominium or a single family home. .  Which is right for you? Condos and houses have their advantages, but did you know. .  PROS Condos are an easy upkeep: Do you lead a busy life? A condo should be on the top of your list, it can offer you a comfortable home free of grass mowing, repairs and snow shoveling. If you’re not a hands-on, Handy Manning type or  do-it-yourself-type. .it just makes a lot of sense having a maintenance crew take care of the repairs around you. The Location is usually much better on a condo: A condo provides the option of living right in the heart of the ci...

Can't Sell Your House? ! The recent slowdown in the real estate market is causing many home owners to fall behind on their mortgage payments. If you can not sell your house fast, and you have a pretty good idea things ain't getting any better. .  You should modify your loan. . If you know that you are losing your home to foreclosure. .calling your bank is a great way to start. .if that does not work then  you have one last option.  Have a professional Realtor that specializes in short sales  complete a short sale. A short sale is a process that will allow you to sell your home and essentially be relieved of the debt to the bank.  There are many reasons why I suggest having a professional Realtor that specializes in short sales perform the short sale process.
