Short sale politics can be hard enough on you without worrying about ramifications on your credit, but if you’re getting a bad deal on your debt and sale price it can be even more devastating. You can (and should!) negotiate with the banks to make sure they accept the short sale, but you’ll need professional help. This is where a real estate agent can come in handy! Here we’re going to go over why short sales don’t always work out, and how you make sure that the process goes as smoothly as possible. Is a Short Sale Right For You? Before we go into how the negotiation process works, you need to be certain that a short sale is the right choice for your future. While you don’t have to be in default to qualify for a short sale, it can have a derogatory effect on your credit report for some ...

Charles County, Maryland home owners may finally have some good news! Good News #1 - Active Listing Volume Has Fallen There are less homes for sale in Charles County. A lot less. 12 months ago we had 991 homes on the market. Today that number is only 731, the lowest it's been in 5 years! Less homes for sake means less choices for buyers, but a better opportunity for sellers to be able to actually sell their home.

It's time to get excited, Charles County! The AMC Loews Movie Theatre in St. Charles Towne Centre is getting a much needed makeover! AMC plans to spend $4.5 Million to finally make this theater decent again. I've hated going there the past few years, i fact I can't even recall the last time I actually sat through a movie in the old theater. The changes include a complete redesign of the lobby, concessions, bathrooms, and theaters. It's all scheduled to be completed sometime this summer, and plans include power leather reclining seats, Sony digital projectors and even perhaps an I-MAX! Anyone who lives in the Waldorf area should be thrilled with the upcoming changes, I know I am! I remember when the theater was built, and attending movies every month during my high school years, but it's...

Getting a bad appraisal hurts. When an appraisal comes in below the agreed sales price, it can throw an entire contract right out the window. It doesn't necessarily have to happen that way, but it is a distinct possibility. First, let's look at the "WHY" when it comes to an appraisal. A low appraisal means one of two things: Your house isn't worth the contract price due to other recent sales in your area that were lower than yours. The appraiser made a mistake. You can always request a review of the appraisal if you think the appraiser made a mistake, but you (or your agent) are going to need to back that claim up with proof, i.e. other recent sales that the appraiser may have missed or omitted and the reason why you think there was an error. Hopefully the appraiser can justify changing...

This home is the nicest property you can find in Wakefield! Huge granite counters, a GIGANTIC master bedroom with walk-in closet and master bath, and a huge Florida room addition to the home as well! No expense has been spared, as this home includes an in-ground sprinkler system, wireless alarm system, beautiful flooring and plenty of space! This home is move-in ready, in great condition! Best of all, this home is not a foreclosure -OR- a short sale! You owe it to yourself to check this gorgeous home out!

What's the next greatest restaurant headed to Waldorf, MD? Apparently it's Buffalo Wild Wings Bar and Grill! I can just imagine how the conversation for that went: "Wanna know what Waldorf really needs?" "Higher-end destination shopping?" "No, another restaurant!" "Oh, you mean like a specialty place, with Asian Fusion?" "No, I mean another big franchise chain!" "Oh.... Something healthy, like a Saladworks?" "Actually, I was thinking about something really different, like a bar." "Oooh, like a themed bar? That would be different!" "Nah, that would be too original. I was thinking about Buffalo Wild Wings!" "Um... don't we have that already? It's called World of Wings..." "No problem, they just went out of business!" In all seriousness, I'm a pretty big fan of the franchise as it used to ...

"The first rule of Fight Club - Don't talk about Fight Club" I'm about to break all the rules about client confidentiality and fiduciary responsibility. Realtors aren't supposed to talk about contracts in detail, as it's a breach of trust with their clients. Well, it seems I just found a loophole! I'm in the process of buying a house myself. A foreclosure to be exact, and over the next few weeks I'm going to go into detail exactly how the negotiation, inspections, qualifying and closing actually workson my transaction. I've been quietly looking for months to try and find a home that fits my needs. My criteria has been this: Purchase price of $250,000 or less Detached Garage (I need a place to store antique muscle cars) Fenced Yard (I've got 3 doggies, and I would rather they not run am...
