Home sellers: Is your home's property condition ready for home buyers?

As I was touring homes earlier today with a client, one home stood out to me for the wrong reason.

With the home's layout, the master bathroom (on suite to the master bedroom) is parallel to the hall bath. Neither the master bathroom nor the hall bath has a vent. In the old days legally you didn't need to for bathrooms that have windows (master does, hall bath does not).  So the owner of this home cut out a square in the hall bath parallel to the window of the master bath for cross ventilation.  
That is weird and I would love to see what an inspector would write up in the report about the hall bath. Invest a little money in both baths so they are in solid condition for yourselves and when you sell. This kind of look is a red flag to realtors and buyers.  Fully prepare your homes to function well and correctly while you live there as well as when you are ready to sell.

Whenever your family, friends or colleagues are thinking of selling, tell them to invite me offer to walk through the house and I will give them a free consultation, advice on items they really should address when getting ready to sell.  And, if they are looking to buy, I would love to work with them.  In order to best serve my buyers, I ask seller's realtors questions about when something looks unusual to me, so I can understand their logic, if it makes sense.

Most importantly, since I am not and don't pretend to be a professional home inspector, I know some outstanding home inspectors who I would recommend to you, whether to do a pre-market inspection or to get an inspection on your home purchase.

Thank you and I always have time for your referrals.

Life is good!

Post move in picture emailed to me by clients!

Made my weekend. After the sales process and into their new home, I remain close with clients and these gems  sent me a picture of flowers they put in by their home.
Relationship selling. So special. I want people to love their homes and show me the love they are putting into their homes.

Refer your friends, family and colleagues to a good realtor who cares.  Even if they aren't in the market to buy or sell but have a real estate question, I'd love to hear from them.

I just sold this lovely and spacious split foyer in Kemp Mill, a subdivision within Silver Spring, MD.  It was an incredibly smooth and pleasant process for both the sellers and the buyers.  In fact, they hugged each other after settlement!

Buyer A.C:  "My husband and I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Adam as our realtor. From the get-go, Adam navigated us through the home buying process in a calm, relaxing, and clear manner. We are first-time home buyers, and the process seemed overwhelming, confusing, and downright scary. But Adam sat down with us and explained everything in such a clear and understanding way that it alleviated all of our fears. He is compassionate and friendly. He has been such a pleasure to work with. Throughout the whole process, any question or concern we had, Adam made himself readily available to answer. And thanks to Adam's immense help, we found our forever home! He made the process so smooth and, dare I say, easy. We could not have asked for a better realtor and will telling anyone who asks that if/when they need a realtor, Adam is the right man for the job."

If you know of anyone thinking of buying in the Maryland or Washington, DC, I am here to help through a smooth buying experience.  Even if they aren't in the market to buy and have some real estate questions,  I would love to talk with them.  I greatly appreciate and always have time for your referrals.

Sold and settled! An investment property in Beltsville, MD!


Call:  (301)943-4370

I just sold a 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo at 11356 Cherry Hill Road, Unit 1W101, Beltsville, MD 20705 to an investor.  You may often drive past this area and see a sign that reads "Maryland Farms Condominiums" - that's the community where the condo is located.  It is a great location. close to the beltway, close to route 29, close to University of Maryland and near shopping.  The community has many amenities.  Just as exciting for me is that my client was able to secure a renter for literally right after settlement, which investors shouldn't bank on always happening.

It takes skill, marketing and a little luck in being able to literally have a renter lined up for an investment property almost literally after the home purchase is completed or literally right after a renter moves out, for that matter.  There is often a time lag, whether it is for fixing up, cleaning up and/or just finding a tenant.  I am so pleased for my client.

The Maryland and Washington, DC areas are pretty transient, with people moving to the area specifically for jobs.  Some people who are coming here for jobs have a defined time period that they plan on living in the area and so they decide to rent instead of purchase homes.  There are also people who live in the area and prefer renting to having the obligations and responsibilities of home ownership.  Finally there are people looking to rent because they are unable to secure a mortgage. So if you have ever thought about purchasing an investment property but were nervous about the lack of potential renters, there are many prospects out there.

The next time you hear of someone looking to buy a home, whether it is to live in  to have an investment property, have him or her contact me for a free, no hassle and no obligation consultation.  I always appreciate and have time for your referrals.

Life is good!

Good read if you or someone you know is thinking of selling a home, whether is it an investment property or your primary residence.  Have you ever weighed the pros and cons of selling your home or keeping it as an investment property?

In addition, if someone you know, whether a family member, friend or colleague is thinking about selling an investment property or home, I would be delighted to meet and discuss the local market and offer some possible suggestions for setting up the property for sale.  Even if they aren't thinking of moving but are curious about the market situation and/or have a real estate question, it would be my pleasure to meet with them.  I always have time for and appreciate your referrals.
