Southern Maryland Real Estate

Southern Maryland Real EstateSouthern Maryland Real Estate and marketing and selling new construction is basically the same in all parts of the country. Marketing and selling new construction is an art in itself. Many clients cannot visualize the location, topography, home dimensions, lot size on a vacant land. In order to market a home lot package and new construction you need to be creative so a potential buyer can visualize the end product. I have been involved in new construction many times in my real estate career. Homes ranging from small first time home buyers to million dollar waterfront estates in Southern Maryland Real Estate area.

I wanted to share this video I found on YouTube. Southern Maryland Real EstateJosh Flagg on “The Million Dollar Listing”, BRAVO TV show. Josh Flagg one of the three young million dollar listing agents, went above and beyond the typical real estate marketing ideas of new home construction. Josh had a life size picture of the high end home and depicts the actual length of the proposed home. He staked the corners and placed the banner in the permitted house location. How about that for visualization?

The community he was trying to sell was an exclusive golfing community. So, what else? A bag of golfing clubs, green, tee and golf balls! Josh engaged the group to tee off. This created many emotions from, playfulness, confidence, enthusiasm, and pleasure. Josh put the group in a relaxed mood. This enabled visualization of living in the neighborhood as well as promoting the amenities. I don’t think anyone will ever forget this property viewing. The down side – Josh didn’t count on a great golfer! lol

I think Josh has this taken marketing real estate for new construction to a new level. In this competitive and challenging real estate market, we must step outside the box and think of a more creative and fun way to sell Southern Maryland Real Estate and new construction.

We Realtor’s know that this show doesn’t represent our industry in the proper perspective and some of the episodes are so fabricated in representing our profession. Hey, it’s TV and they need to draw an audience to make it sell. Take the good with the bad a maybe learn a few things. Do you think BRAVO though of this marketing idea or Josh? Humm… So, for now we will say Josh! Personally, I think it is hillarious!

Southern Maryland Real Estate has many new constructions sites available in Calvert, St. Mary’s and Charles Counties.

Chesapeake Ranch Estates!

Since 1958, Chesapeake Ranch Estates (CRE) has been an private community situated on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay, just north of the mouth of the Patuxent River, in Calvert County, Maryland. CRE is located 60 miles off the Capitol Beltway (I-495) around Washington, DC, and 57 miles south of the Maryland state capital, Annapolis, home of the U.S. Naval Academy. The area’s major employment center is the nearby Patuxent River Naval Air Station and Headquarters of the Naval Air Systems Command, plus the literally hundreds of surrounding private companies that support that government facility providing analytical science and engineering consulting in the fields of aircraft development and flight testing.

CRE encompasses over 4000 private homes , each unique init’s own, on lots ranging from a quarter acre to over one acre, (67) miles of privately owned and maintained roads, Two private sandy beaches on Chesapeake Bay, Driftwood Beach and Seahorse Beach.

For additional resources and details goto Federal Housing Tax Credit .

For all those that have been waiting, I don’t think it is going to get better than this. Home Pirices have declined from 30-70% across the nation. Rates are historically low and should rise due to the new government debt. Rates are expected to go up over the next three years because of inflation and over supply of Debt.

The government loans are good loans. 100% financing is still available. RD Loan funding should be available within the next 30 days. I have a feeling that this money will go fast. So take advantage of it while the money is available.

If you would like to sign up for a  a FREE First-Time Home Buyer Class. Knowledge is powerful and we would love to pass it on…

We have all been hit financially, one way or another! So, it is time to take a look at ways to cut back your debt to offset your income and adjust our thinking. Most of us Americans did live beyond our means. Feeling the pinch, its time to alien our lives. Here are a few things that make help all that are reading.
 Property tax assessments have arrived in my area. To my surprise, I had two adjacent lots (same size) assessed or valued at a difference of 100K. This means $1450.00 more than I should be paying. Check out your tax assessments and challenge them. For best defense don’t appeal in writing request a personal hearing with an assessor. Another error I found that tax assessment office did correct immediately, was my home was not applied as a primary residence, therefore I was not receiving “The Homestead Tax Credit” . This was an additional reduction in my tax bill of $400 annually.
Call your local cable company, phone company, electric company and see if they have any specials. You will be surprised what they will do if you explain your circumstances or are terminating service to go to a another company that has a better plan/offer.
I found a website that will save you money on groceries. http://www.couponmom.com. A family of four (teenage friends too), spend a lot of money in groceries, this will help alot is you get organized. For all you new parents, this is great for savings on baby’s needs…
Electric! SMECO (Southern Maryland Electric) has raised our electric rates from approximately 3 cents a kilowatt about 14 months ago to almost 13 cents a kilowatt. It is as bad as the wall street CEO’s and bonuses. “They should be shamed too”
Unplug or turn off the items in your home that are always on.i.e… coffee pots, microwaves, computers, printers etc..
Health Insurance! I sopke with a couple of insurance companies this week and to my amazement, I obtained new insurance with a better company, lower deductable, better plan for a whopping savings of $120 month….
I have also sent out address of properties I own to have quotes on homeowners insurance. Will let you know the outcome…
