HOMEOWNERS NEED HELP WITH SHORT SALES Why do HOMEOWNERS NEED HELP WITH SHORT SALES?  No homeowner set out to lose their home to the bank in the foreclosure process.  Most families are devastated at the idea of foreclosure and want to do all they can to avoid it.  They may not know their options or may be too embarrassed to ask for help.  If options, such as loan modifications are not available to them, or if they have to move, the SUCCESSFUL Short Sale may be their best option.  Homeowners need the help of Real Estate Agents Knowledgeable in the Short Sale process because there are specific requirements that the Homeowner has to meet, to satisfy the Lender, and the Short Sale process is complicated.

HOME BUYERS CONTINUE TO BENEFIT FROM LOW PRICES AND LOW INTEREST As we enter 2010 Home Buyers continue to benefit from low prices and low interest rates.  There appears to be some stabilization of the prices on houses for sale, in Southern MD.  The prices  still make First Time Home Buying accessible to many.  The First Time Home Buyer can benefit from the $8000 Tax Credit through June 30, 2010.  Other qualified home buyers can benefit from up to $6,500, also through June 30, to move up or buy a second home.  BUT don't forget contracts must be in effect by April 30, 2010.  April 30 is not far away!  If you seriously want to benefit from low prices and low interest rates you should start looking NOW! The Feds Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) Purchase Program is coming to an end on March 31...

TAX CREDIT FOR OTHER HOME BUYERS     THIS COULD MEAN YOU!! My name is Margaret C. and I am a Century 21 New Millennium Real Estate Agent in St Mary's County, MD. I thought I had already shared this information about a Tax Credit for Other Home Buyers.  If you have seen it before I apologize, if not I hope it is useful to you, or that you can share it with a friend, who is going to be a Home Buyer. Most people know about the $8,000 Tax Credit for First Time Home Buyers.  This was extended through June 30. 2010.  When this was extended an additional $6,500 Tax Credit for Other Home Buyers was implemented. In order to qualify for the $6,500 Tax Credit for Other Home Buyers, a purchaser has to have owned, and occupied, a primary residence for a period of five consecutive years during the la...

NOTHING STOPS A REALTOR!! On Monday, December 21, I was praising the beauty of snow and on Tuesday,  December 22, it was another story.  Oh Yes! The snow is still beautiful, but on Tuesday I was stuck in it!!  We had just had the biggest snow for years, in Southern Maryland. I had the call to show a rental property!  I dared to try to go up a driveway that had not yet been plowed.  Nothing stops a Realtor!!  After all I had all wheel drive.  All went well until I was three quarters of the way up.  Tires started spinning.  I reached forward and pressed the button (traction control/vehicle stability that is) and applied more gas, just like my husband taught me.  Oh! Oh! a sideways move towards the edge of the driveway. Nothing stops a Realtor!!  Don't give up, try again.  Apply more gas a...
