Local Open House Thefts Reported - Potomac, MDAn open house theft was reported in Potomac, Maryland, last month and similar activity has since been reported at several open houses in Alexandria, Virginia.  Showing agents think a father/son team may be to blame for the stolen jewelry and other items.   The following description of the suspects in action is posted on www.nvar.com:  The elder is in his early 50s, the son in his mid-20s. Both are white, have brown hair, and are about 5' 9". The father claims to be from Columbia, Maryland, and wants to be closer to Metro.  The younger house hunter wandered upstairs as the agent was talking to the father. The father called upstairs to his son and said "Make sure you take a picture of the hall -- you know how important the hall is to me." They...

It is important to make the right decision in financial matters, especially when your credit history will take an immediate hit if you make the wrong one.  If you are in a position of deciding between selling your home as a short sale or letting it go into foreclosure, it is critical to be aware of the differences of how either one could effect your credit.  There's Help to Prevent Foreclosure In either case, you should examine available alternatives to spare your home and your credit.  The State of Maryland is proactive about preventing future foreclosure; before making a decision check out foreclosure counseling services in Montgomery County or  contact the Homeownership Preservation Foundation by telephone at 888-995-HOPE or at its website at www.995hope.org.

Even if you work in DC and love it, you may not want to live in this pricey, condo-dominated  area.  Your vision for your life may include some green grass and a little distance between where you live and where you work.  If you set your sites on the Inner Ring suburbs of DC in Montgomery County, you can have it all. Montgomery County is home to the three cities of Gaithersburg, Rockville, and Takoma Park, 12 towns including Kensington, Chevy Chase, and Somerset, four villages, including Chevy Chase, Section 3 and Section 5, North Chevy Chase, four Special Tax districts, including Friendship Heights, and dozens of unincorporated areas like Bethesda , Potomac , and Germantown.  This mix of entities, each with its own personality, is governed by a County Executive/County Council.

Follow this Link to the latest Updates on Bank Owned Potomac Properties http://mrislistings.mris.com/Matrix/Public/Portal.aspx?k=1546277X4874&p=DE-88737965-84 Bank Owned or REO (Real Estate Owned) Properties can often be the best way to take advantage of this amazing buyer's market. Once the bank takes possession they begin the notoriously slow process of listing the home for sale. First they determine if the property is still occupied. If occupied they begin the eviction process. If vacant, they secure & rekey, order a BPO (Broker's Price Opinion) & assign an agent etc..... When the property finally hits the market ... it will likely be priced well below current comps. It is vital to be ready to take advantage of this opportunity when it hits the market!   ....    Most well priced Ban...

Maybe you've thought that you'd like to buy a home in Montgomery County pretty soon but you're just not sure.  If you are sitting on the fence, right now it's a matter of 1,2,3. 1-  If you have never owned a home before, this credit is unquestionably for you - the true, first time homebuyer.  As long as you are creditworthy and not exceed income limits of $75,000 to $95,000 for singles and $150,000 to $170,000 for couples, you are eligible to receive a 10% credit on your home up to a maximum of $8,000. The credit is a true credit that does not have to be repaid so long as you keep the home for three years.  There is talk of the credit being extended, but if it's not this is your number ONE chance to get your first home for up to $8,000 less than the selling price. 2-  The homeowner cred...

Considering buying a home?  Now is the time.  Uncle Sam just might be your long, lost, rich uncle after all!  In case you have not heard, there is current legislation allowing for the government to foot the bill to the tune of $8000 towards your home purchase.  This legislation has been put into place to help first time home buyers jump on the band wagon. Everyone knows that our economy is slow, to say the least, and of course, there has been a bad blow to the housing market.  Washington feels that giving a cash credit to first time home buyers will aid in boosting the housing market and stimulating the economy.  This may just be the case, but time could be short.  The original legislation is to benefit transactions that close prior to December 1, 2009.  This may sound like you have ple...

Nothing screams "summertime" so much as freshly picked local produce.  Even though modern food processing methods assure us that food will taste almost-fresh picked, there's nothing like fruits and vegetable right from the vine.  That's why lots of Potomac residents grow a few tomatoes or zucchini for their families. If you aren't a gardener or want more variety than you can grow, the numerous farmers' markets in the area will assure a cornucopia of flavor for your table.  Peaches, blackberries, blueberries, peaches,  tomatoes, peppers, corn, melons, berries, cabbage, cauliflower - the mouthwatering list goes on.  You can even buy enough to freeze for later.  Some markets are even open all year though the selection is more limited in the winter months.  Many even offer organically-grow...
