Hearing the headlines that interest rates have doubled, sales have slowed, demand has dwindled... leaves little doubt, the Real Estate market is changing. Just one quick glance at my morning Market Watch (for Montgomery & Howard County) confirms that. The number of active listings is often in the...
When you have a pet and want to buy a condo one of the first things we'll check for is the pet policy. There's a field in our multiple listing service that requires the listing agent to disclose the pet policy of the condominium. The choices are: yes, no, case-by-case, size/weight restrictions, n...
My first-time home buyer started out looking for a townhome but dreaming of a single family with a yard for the four-legged family member. Options were extremely limited, we looked at a home with roaches, another one with framing issues, a third one with foundation repairs looming.. while a littl...
I love a good challenge, especially one that is meaningful fun. Thanks Ray and Margaret! Grab a beverage of choice and settle in, there are a lot of questions. It's going to be a long one. August challenge: Truth in the Rain. 1.  We all go on vacation to get away from it all and have a great time...

I have to share this screenshot with you all that I took a couple of months ago (I planned on posting it sooner but it's been so wonderfully busy!). It is all about mortgage rates but it so perfectly illustrates the point that it depends on who you ask when you want to know the state of things, a...
Just a little sneak peek of my newest listing Coming Soon in the heart of Olney, MD. This 3 bedroom, 2 full bath home is cute as a button and will charm you! Located at the far end of the community, it offers more privacy than other buildings, and a patio facing green space instead of a parking l...
