Did you know that MELTED SNOW AND ICICLES ON THE ROOF OF YOUR HOUSE ARE CLUES TO HEAT LOSS? Be a HEAT LOSS detective. SAVE MONEY.  If the SNOW stays on your roof then your insulation is good or your house is freezing inside! If the SNOW melts quickly you may have insufficient insulation, or the sun is shining brightly. These pictures were taken today in a Mechanicsville neighborhood in St Mary's MD, after our first light snow. It was 9:30AM and the sun was not out.         After a SNOW, even a light one, check how the snow melts on your roof. If you see thin vertical lines of snow between strips of bare roof then your attic insulation may be inadequate, resulting in HEAT LOSS.   This is what is happening: The snow stays longest where there are rafters because the wood provides insulatio...

GEOTHERMAL SYSTEM INSTALLED IN ST MARYS MARYLAND Part 2 If you review the initial stages of this installation you will find out more about the well drilling by Aqua Well Drilling, Callaway, MD.  This week Tri-Co AIRE , Mechanicsville, MD, finished installing our new Geothermal heating and cooling system.                        Out with the old (oil) and in with the new (geothermal).  I expected the furnaces to look totally different.  The pipes that lead from the bottom of the new furnace connect to the water supply.  On the back side of the new furnace is an electronic air filter.  One difference between the two furnaces is that the geothermal one can be enclosed.  I have some understanding of how the a vertical closed-loop system works but if you really want to know the technical  inf...

NEW FORECLOSURE HELP FOR HOME OWNERS REALTOR MAGAZINE Daily Real Estate News  |  March 26, 2010  |   New Foreclosure Prevention Plan Announced  President Obama is announcing an expansion of foreclosure-prevent tactics, including a plan to reduce principal balances and special aid for unemployed borrowers.The bulk of the responsibility for carrying out the new program will be assigned to the Federal Housing Administration, which will insure lenders against part of the losses.The plan asks banks to write down loan balances to less than the value of the home. If there is both a first and second mortgage, the combined total would have to be no more than 115 percent of the home's value.The Treasury would pay part of unemployed homeowners' loans for three months while they job hunt.Source: Th...

MARYLAND TAX CREDIT FOR EMPLOYERS HIRING AN UNEMPLOYED RESIDENT I just learned that MARYLAND is offering a $5000 TAX CREDIT FOR EMPLOYERS HIRING AN UNEMPLOYED RESIDENT!! Sorry, I don't have more information but I thought this was important.  Let's hope that this is a program that employers can really use. It's all a part of stabilizing the financial market.  Obviously, for the housing market, the more residents that remain employed the more stable the housing market.  Mortgages can be paid and houses can be purchased. I anticipate hearing and reading more about this tomorrow. MARYLAND TAX CREDIT FOR EMPLOYERS HIRING AN UNEMPLOYED RESIDENT If you are in the market to sell, or buy, a house then please contact me.

START A SPRING GARDEN IN SOUTHERN MARYLAND THINK SPRING!!  Get past all the snow and THINK SPRING!!  It doesn't seem possible with so much snow around, but when it is gone it will be time to plant. Start your garden inside in your home and get a head start.   If you plant tomato seeds in pots indoors mid-month, the seedlings will be ready to transplant into the garden after the last spring frost, typically the first or second week of April in Southern Maryland.   When the snow is gone prepare for your Sping Vegetable Garden.  Be sure it's not too wet.  Dig in some compost or well rotted manure and begin planting.  Collards, peas, radishes, spinach and turnips can go in any time this month.  Wait until the last week of February to put in potatoes.  Information originally shared in The Wa...

MECHANICSVILLE MARYLAND HOUSES AND LAND FOR SALE St Marys County Commissioners agreed this week to put most of the lands on Mechanicsville MD east side in the Rural Preservation District.  They did this to avoid traffic and visual problems.  It's great news that the countryside is going to be preserved a few more years.  63 acres were set aside for higher residential use. The old village of Mechanicsville and surrounding development are on the west side of Route 5.  Woods and fields and sloping land are on the east side. This could be considered the 'inner circle' of Mechanicsville MD.  The 'outer circle' or 'Greater' Mechanicsville MD extends North to Charlotte Hall, South to Oakville, West to Wicomico Shores and East to the Patuxent River.

WHAT IS A SHORT SALE AND HOW DO I BUY IT? A Short Sale property is worth buying, don't pass it up, but do have Buyer's Representation.  You can buy your 'dream house' even if it is a Short Sale!! What buyers should know about Short Sales. A Short Sale occurs when a homeowner owes more on their property than the property is actually worth, but they negotiate with the bank to accept less than what is owed as payment-in-full.  The Buyer must wait patiently for the negotiation to occur. Before buying a Short Sale a Buyer needs to know that:       1).  He may be able to purchase a 'short sale' property at a price 5-10% below market value, but the Lender wants as close to Market Value as possible.            2).   A Short Sale process usually takes longer than a normal transaction.       3). ...
