 Just how much does that additional bathroom cost? I was checking all the units for sale in Frederick on East All Saints Street. The price for units that have two bathrooms is certainly note worthy. It ranges from $4,900 to $328,750 more than the only two bedroom, one bath unit. All of the units have two bedrooms. The square footage varies............but, the difference on paper is one bathroom.  Maybe, just maybe, it isn't the bathroom. It could be that the extra bathroom is equipped with ...... Golden toilet paper  Of course, If you are looking for a two bedroom condo, right smack in the middle of downtown Fredrick, in the Maxwell Place building, and you can get by with one bathroom......call me. You might save yourself anywhere from $4,900 to $328,750. Just for sport, I will throw in...

Prior buyers' markets have shown that the condo sector will often take the brunt of the market slowdown.  The results are reflected in the reduction of prices, along with units staying on the market for longer periods of time prior to selling.  For the owners who need to sell their condo, key things to remember for this market include: (1) PRICING - even a nice unit slightly overpriced will sit on the market for a while; (2) presentation - clean, uncluttered rooms with neutral decor; and (3) a dedicated agent who will create buzz about the unit through effective marketing and showings.Since it's a buyers' market, those seeking a condo will find plenty of options to consider.  However, it's still advantagious to react quickly to the unit you desire.  Even though condos may stay on the ma...

Well, here's our gas prices as of last night and this is already outdated.  Drove by this morning and it was $3.14 for regular. Can you imagine the man hours that are involved in changing the price on these signs?  I bet we could fix the national debt just by farming this out to India.  In the last couple of years you would think that the gas station owners would have invested in a better way to change the prices by now.  There some signs that have an LED look to them, with the savings from the man hours and the extra cost of the sign...they should be at a break even point if they purchased it last summer.Do you remember driving down the highway and seeing the old gas station signs up on billboards with the current price? Sure it was like .78 cents back then, but the price never changes...

Here is a tool that is both interesting and helpful for your SEO and marketing. Google trends tracks the activity of internet search terms over a period of time. Although one downfall is if the term does not get enough activity and trends report can not be created.Let us take the terms Maryland Homes and Maryland Real Estate (my service area). Both terms have trends that are fairly comparable as should be given the similarity of the meanings of the phrases. The activity gives us clues about the real estate market. First, notice the peak in mid 2005. This peak corresponds to the hottest point in our Maryland marketplace in recent years as it did with many locations across the United States.  After that point into 2006 the terms overall were search for less often correlating to the real e...

What is one to say about this town?  Frederick, MD has so much going on for an old historic town.  It is in some of the final phases of the Carroll Creek Project.  This is driving growth and housing prices in this area.  The idea is to create a beautiful area that people can live, work and shop all in one place.  This town used to be the second largest city in Maryland, but now has to settle with the title of fourth largest.  The city has employed the talents of a production company to help drive growth in this charming town.  Take a look at the video for yourself.  Drive through town and take in some of it's charm. Here's something I made with RealEstateShows.com to save on gas if you can't make the trip today.    What to do around town?  A wide variety of entertainment pleasures grace...

These aren't the typical tips, such as taking care of the dogs, cleaning the house, packing your undies and the like. Instead, these tips deal specifically with the physical move and ways to make it easier and less stressful for folks who are moving hundreds of miles. Tip #2 - Moving Tips Ease Your Pain First of All, Sell All that You Can. Don't hang onto all the stored clothes, books, old records, etc., just because you might need it someday. Have a humongous yard/garage sale and just get rid of it. Besides freeing you up from household items that your children or grandchildren will throw away anyway once you've made that "final move," eliminating extraneous items will put some road money in your pocket and save you money if you're hiring a moving company, which charges by weight.
