HOMES FOR SALE, Charles County, MD - Value, Style & SHOPPING!! AH!  I remember it well.  Charles County was that area in Southern Maryland for inexpensive homes, primarily in Waldorf.  However, there were a few barriers, which likely accounted for the low prices:Commuting was bumper-to-bumper up and down Route 5 to employment locations in D.C. The primary development offering a significant housing community was St. Charles. The closest major consumer shopping was in Landover, Prince George's County, Annapolis Mall or Northern Virginia.  Then, in 1988 the St. Charles Towne Center opened and put Charles County real estate in the sights of home buyers.  Over the years, with new shopping convenience, new home builders entered the Charles County real estate market.  Developed in large part b...

Charles County residents have stood up to the government and won another hard fought victory! The Maryland Senate president, Thomas V. “Mike” Miller (D-Calvert, Prince George’s) and Sen. Thomas “Mac” Middleton (D-Charles) have announced that the state is no longer considering construction of a youth jail in Waldorf, MD! It's still possible that a youth facility may be built in Southern Maryland at some point in the future, budgetary constraints have forced the government to put the project on hold, and Waldorf residents have made it clear that building such a facility in a high density location, located in the middle of the town, is simply a terrible idea. I suspect this won't be the last time Charles County has to deal with such a possibility, but for now the residents of Waldorf can b...

If you're from the area, you've probably already noticed the rising amount of single family and town home construction. In the past year, there have been hundreds of contracts signed for new homes that have been and will be built in the area, and the number is an increase from last year. Because we're so close to D.C., the lower cost is what's drawing people in. Compared to other places in the Washington area, St. Charles has some of the lowest priced homes. Along with houses, St. Charles has also built several apartment complexes. This gives renters, as well as buyers, the ability to live close to the city without the high expenses. Not only are there hundreds of homes being built, there are also future plans of a nursing home, a new high school, a natural gas power plant, and a 40-acr...

I am chairing the 6th Annual Angie Houtz Memorial Fund Golf Tournament. The Angie Houtz Memorial Fund was established after my best friend Angie was killed in the September 11 attack on the Pentagon.  The charity is run by my husband and I, Angie's 2 sisters and their husbands. Since it's inception the fund has given out $1000s in scholarships to talented students attending public colleges in Maryland.  We recently awarded the 2012 scholarships to 5 talented college students. After notifying 2012's winner of a $3000 scholarship we received the following response: "Last night, after I received the phone call that I won the scholarship, I reread all the articles written about Angie. It brought tears to my eyes. What a beautiful person she was! I am so honored to be the recipient of all th...

You Heard it Here..!   Waldorf, Maryland has been named to the "Top 100 Best Places to Live" by CNN's Money Magazine.   I grew up in Waldorf, graduated from Thomas Stone High School (Go Cougars!)  and have just recently moved back to the area, actually splitting my time between Northern Virgina and Southern Maryland. It sure has come a long way since I lived here.  What was once a small Southern Maryland town, is now a full of activity.  The main drag in Waldorf has, pretty much, every store you could ask for.                        "CNN's Money Magazine has included the city of Waldorf in Charles County on its list of the Top 100 Best Places to Live--ranking it at number 20. "Saying that Waldorf is a  "major retail spot in Southern Maryland" with a "welcoming vibe and safe streets."  S...

Thinking About A Short Sale? How Does $35,000 Sound? That's a lot of cash. For one of my clients who sold his house as a short sale in Maryland last month, that's exactly how much Chase Mortgage gave him. Why don't more people know this is possible? Odds are good that their Realtor isn't even aware! A few short years ago getting any proceeds from a short sale was harder than winning an Olympic gold medal, but then the government released the Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives (HAFA) program, and suddenly homeowners were seeing up to $6,000in proceeds from their lender in exchange for successfully completing a short sale. Why HAFA Isn't As Cool Anymore There were a few problems with the program, however. The guidelines were limiting, the banks never help up their end of the agreeme...
