I was recently asked by urbanturf.com to describe three Maryland areas that are up and coming and provide good investment potential. They specifically did not want to include well established and pricey areas such as Bethesda and Chevy Chase. Of course, I do not advocate anything but long-term investing, whether it is to buy property for a rental (buy and hold), or as a residence. The days of short term gains are not likely to be seen again for a long while, and this is probably a good thing. To read the urbanturf.com article published Dec. 15 2008, click here. To search for homes and property values in any of these neighborhoods, click here. Here is my two cents worth, as provided to urbanturf.com: Northern end of Kensington: within walking distance of both the MARC train and the Wheat...

KENSINGTON ORCHIDS REO PRICE REDUCTION - KENSINGTON, MARYLAND Bargain hunters make note.  September home buyers need to watch the inventory of lender owned homes in Montgomery County, MD,  The result of the surge in foreclosures is that the lenders now own an excessive number of properties.  The lenders are highly motivated sellers and are reducing the prices until the homes are under contract.  Allow us to show you how to successfully purchase a lender owned foreclosure.

Dear Neighbors: Recently it seems that every conversation I have  begins with the question "How bad is it out there in the real estate market?" Typically, the questioner expects my response to be more dire than it turns out to be. Most of us are informed about this market by reading newspapers and watching the T.V. news. When you witness the magnitude of the problems in states like Florida, Arizona, Nevada, California and many others, it can be a sobering experience. A major difference between Maryland and other states is that we have a substantial and growing job market that is anchored by the Federal Government. This results in an inflow of highly educated professionals who are in need of housing. It is true that properties in lower Montgomery County are experiencing a slower sales p...
