REPLACEMENT TREES TO BE PLANTED IN KENTLANDS As Kentlands residents, we are glad to know about efforts to replace trees that have been removed. There is a pocket park on Otis Mews behind our home where trees have been removed in past years but never replaced. If you have specific request for replacement trees, follow the suggestion of Robyn Renas in the following repost of her report in The News. New Trees to be Planted, but Where?  By: Robyn Renas, Secretary While performing annual tree maintenance within the community, several dead or dying trees were removed from our many tree-save areas and pocket-parks.  The City of Gaithersburg requires a tree removal permit and an attached condition states that new trees of equivalent caliper must be planted to replace those removed.  We know we ...

Today I had a home inspection.  I was there with the inspector and the buyers.  I don't do much other than let everyone into the house and answer questions about what the seller is obligated to do as per our MAR contract.  That is about it. The last inspection I went to, the same group of folks, me, the inspector, and the buyers.  However, the inspection I had last week the listing agent was also present.  I didn't think much of it at the time, but as I was driving back to the office I started to remember that the last few inspections I have had when I have sold homes from this particular company, the listing agent has been present?  I will have to ask the listing agent the next time, but wondering if this has become a company policy? While I don't really mind them being there and 9.5 t...

What we all do here on Active Rain, Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter - those are the ones I use the most - is, of course, called Social Networking. With social networking there are many different aspects of it and why we do what we do and who we interact with.  I started here on Active Rain and then all you know what broke loose.  I found my inner geek and have never looked back.  Not coming from a technology background, I had no idea what a widget was, much less what to do with it, but now I do.  Well, at least I have an idea. Nervous as I started, I started commenting and then final tried my hand a writing a blog or so.  Amazed, I found this entire new world of people, who I now consider family and friends.   The best part of social networks is that most people  share their knowledge an...

  When I think of the word "neighborhood" I think of West Riding.  It is an established neighborhood located in the heart of Gaithersburg.  It is part of the City of Gaithersburg.  There are different home styles in West Riding.  There are two styles of Colonial, a split colonial, split foyer, rambler and a raised rambler.  The homes were built in the late 1960's and early 1970's.  When you look in West Riding at homes, you will see that most of the homeowners have updated and remodeled many of the homes.  You will find new kitchens, replaced windows, roofs, HVAC systems.  The homes sit on lots that are close to a half acre. Those are some of the asthethics of the neighborhood, but the people are really spectacular.  Whenever I have a listing in the neighborhood you can be sure that the...

Compared to the same time last year, the number of Gaithersburg MD home sales in February 2009 has held steady overall with 61 properties sold (compared to 59 sold in February 2008).  The overall trend is that supply is down, there are fewer new listings coming on the market, REOs and foreclosures are up, and buyers are getting bargains. There was quite a drop off in activity in zip code 20878 - decreasing from 34 to 25 properties sold, due partly to less inventory.  There was an increase in zip code 20877 neighborhoods from 11 to 24 properties sold, where inventory was down only slightly compared to last year.  Zip code 20879 saw 12 properties sell, almost the same as last year, despite an almost 20% drop in inventory.  Most of these homes sold in 3 to 4 months on average.  The overall...

Sometimes it can be hard to be friends with a REALTOR.  I don't mean because we are a difficult sort at times or that we hang out with other REALTORS, traveling in a herd.  I am talking about our schedules. Today I was feeling really bad because back in February my girlfriend asked if I wanted to go for a long weekend to get away from it all.  I said sure, but you never how my schedule might pan out? We thought we might get plane tickets to Florida or somewhere tropical and get away from the cold winter weather.  As time came closer and closer the busier and busier I became.  I just knew my time was running out and I would not be able to make our trip.  We did not put anything in stone so no monies were lost or spent so that was good. As it turns out, I became too busy to leave town.  I...

It was really great to go into my office today to meet new purchasers and the place was really hopping.   Conference rooms were busy with agents and clients.  Agents were copying and faxing.  The place was all a buzz. It was really nice to have that "break through, Spring is just about here, things are gonna get better" kind of feeling today.  My hope is that the low rates, tax credit and just being sick and tired of gloom and doom has hit our consumers just a little bit.  I think that the folks know the time is now to get out there and move forward. I have always thought that synergy is important in an office and today my office was just a buzzin'!! Audrey June-Forshey RE/MAX Realty Group MovinMaryland.com

Procuring Cause has become a hot topic, especially in these times.  Times are tough and some folks are fighting and pinching for every dime.  I have never experienced a dispute, I count myself lucky for that, but think I just got threatened by an agent in my area? I wrote a post about an agent who feels he is the procuring cause if a sale was produced with my now buyers.  Let me just say the subject property is under contract from another purchaser so it is a mute point as far as my purchasers go, but it got me thinking. Here is why he thinks he would have been the procuring cause;  They saw the house on the internet and called him to ask about the property.  I think there was one email exchanged and one phone call.  Now here is where it gets tricky - The wife buyer's mother - went over...
