Military PCS Changes Possible - Fort Meade

Fort Meade Relocation information and home search
If you're in the military, chances are you've racked up a PCS move every
2 - 3 years. The stress involved in a move is enough to make some military
members opt out of the lifestyle.  A top Pentagon official now says that,
they have under consideration, a plan to keep military families at one base
for longer periods of time
.  

Some of the top issues they are trying to address are:

*  Job stability for spouses
*  Retention of good service people
*  School stability for children
*  Decrease in moving costs 

I'd like to add another point as well which is the decision to buy a home or
rent a home at a duty station.  Military families often opt for renting instead
of investing in ownership because of the limited amount of time they will have
to live in their home and build equity.  

Longer stays at each base would be a good boost for local real estate economies
and encourage home ownership.

The bottom line is the military wants to retain as many well qualified members
as possible and keeping them happy is at the top of the agenda.

If you're relocating to Fort Meade on military orders we can help you get
started with viewing all homes for sale near Fort Meade along with all homes
for rent near Fort Meade and new construction homes.  Contact us today at

Homes for Rent Near Fort Meade MD - December 2017

Making a move to or from Fort Meade MD this year?  We know just how stressful that can be.  Our team was founded around the needs of the military family because as military families ourselves we REALLY understand how tough relocation can be.  In many areas of the country, real estate agents don't assist with rental properties.  But homes for rent near Fort Meade are in such demand that our team specializes in helping home renters find their perfect place at absolutely no charge to you.  Our rental locator service is FREE.

Homes for rent near Fort Meade MD
We've all been there before.  Searching multiple websites for homes, contacting the agent or homeowner listed and waiting for a call back (or not) all while losing track of which home they are calling us back about!  It's frustrating, time consuming and requires a lot of coordination.  Well put your home search in our hands and we will be your single point of contact to answer questions about any home you find on-line.  All you need to do is create an account on our website and you'll automatically be contacted by a team member to get information about what you are looking for and then we'll assign you to the best agent to get you taken care of.  That team member will work with you before your arrival to fine tune your criteria and area and be ready and waiting when you arrive to house hunt.  We even do sight-unseen rentals and can do skype walk-thrus of homes and neighborhoods for you.

If you're a home owner interested in renting your home, we do that too.  Ask about our tenant locator services.  For a fee of one month's rent, we'll take photos for you (or you can opt for a professional photo package at an additional fee if you'll be renting the property long-term), advertise your property on-line, professionally screen your prospective tenants, prepare your lease in accordance with all state, local and Federal regulations and attend the final walk-thru to put your tenant in place.

So pack your bags, focus on your move and let us make finding or renting your home the easiest part of your move!

The Fort Meade Homes Team has been in business since 2000 and in that time we've helped over 2,500 families buy, sell and rent homes.  We'd love to put our experience to work for you!  Start your search for all homes for rent near Fort Meade today.

Crofton Real Estate Update - 12-18-17

Crofton MD

As we close out 2017, the story is the same.  Real Estate inventory is low
in Crofton.  There are only 13 single family homes for sale ranging in price
from $425,000 to $550,000.  There are also only 11 town homes for sale
and those range in price from from $220,000 to $360,000.  Condo availability
(which includes many town homes in our area) is the most plentiful with
24 properties actively for sale
ranging in price from $170,000 to $470,000.

Crofton MD remains a very popular place to call home for military and
DOD families in part because of the top notch schools.  We expect 2018 will be
a VERY strong year for Crofton real estate as well considering construction on
our long awaited high school begins this year!

If you're a homeowner or home buyer in Crofton, contact The Roskelly Team
today for expert real estate services.  We've helped over 2,500 families buy,
sell and rent homes in the area and we would love to put that experience to
work for you!

New Construction Homes For Sale Near Fort Meade

Thinking of buying a new construction home near Fort Meade in 2018?
Below are some of the common questions we receive from our clients.

DOES MY ROSKELLY TEAM REPRESENTATIVE HAVE TO ACCOMPANY
ME ON MY FIRST VISIT TO THE COMMUNITY?
In most cases yes!  When you are ready to look at new construction
homes, make us your first call at (410) 721-6694.

DO BUILDERS OFFER SPECIAL REALTOR INCENTIVES?
New construction builders in the area often offer incentives and discounts
to local real estate agents that you as a consumer might not see.  We
pass those savings directly to you! 

WHO DOES THE ON-SITE AGENT REPRESENT?
The agent on-site represents the builder only.  They can work with you
to write your contract and facilitate administrative tasks but ultimately
their duties as a real estate agent are to the builder.

WILL I SAVE MONEY IF I USE THE BUILDER'S AGENT?
This is a myth!  Many home buyers believe they will be able to negotiate
additional incentives for their home if they use the builders representative
but any money saved by the builder goes in their pocket, not your home.

DO BUILDERS ALLOW US TO USE OUR OWN AGENT?
Builders welcome you to bring your own buyer representation at
absolutely no extra charge or decrease in incentives.  Real estate agents
who have pre-qualified clients are welcomed and builders include their
properties in the MLS to encourage us to bring our clients to them.

WE HAVE A HOME TO SELL - HOW DO WE HANDLE A CONTINGENCY?
We're fluent in handling these transactions and know what it will take to get
the builder to accept a contingency.  We'll handle it properly keeping everyone
involved informed, happy, and moving forward!

WHAT ABOUT LISTING MY CURRENT HOME FOR SALE?

We are finding that many families are "moving up" to new construction and
have homes to sell.  Your builder might offer an incentive for using their 
recommended agent.  This puts additional money in their pocket through
referrals and again, you have an agent with loyalties to the builder.

The Roskelly Team offers a commission discount when you buy a new 
construction home with us and sell your home with our team.  You
get all the same service that we are known for including free home staging
and professional photography along with concierge service from start to finish.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO FINANCE OUR NEW HOME?
The builder will offer you incentives to use their lender.  However, in some 
cases, those incentives don't outweigh the actual cost of getting the loan
through them.  In fact in many cases we can find you a loan through a
trusted lender that will be better for your over the long term.  We'll help
you by providing all the information you need to make the best decision
for your situation.

WHAT ABOUT CONSTRUCTION DEFECTS AND OVERSIGHTS?
We can help you find items that aren't built to plan.  Mistakes happen and
builders are dealing with dozens of homes, construction crews and sub-
contractors.  We're focused on just one home, yours!

WHO WILL BE ATTENDING INSPECTIONS?
The builder may delegate walk-through inspections to the construction
supervisor or on-site sales representative.  We'll attend each and every
walk-through inspection with you and be your second set of eyes and ears
to look for issues.  

WHAT ABOUT COMMUNITY HOA DOCUMENTS?
You are entitled to any HOA documents that accompany the house per
Maryland law and you have the right to review those before you sign
the contract or, if you receive that information after you've signed your
contract you only have 7 - 10 to review and raise any objections.  After
that time period you forfeit your right to terminate the contract even if 
there is a condition in there that you disagree with.

WILL I WORK DIRECTLY WITH THE BUILDER FOR QUESTIONS?
You're likely selling your home, planning a move and probably working full-
time to afford that.  We'll work directly with the builder on your behalf to make
sure that everything is running smoothly and run interference on any issues
with a full report to you on your schedule including evenings and weekends
long after the builder representative has closed the office for the day.

Contact us for a free and confidential consultation and we'll show how we
make transitioning to your new construction home a breeze.

Homes for sale in Crofton MD

Crofton MD Homes For Sale

December 4, 2017 - As of today there are 59 homes for sale in Crofton MD including all home types.  There are 52 homes under contract and waiting to settle.  Real estate inventory is not keeping up with demand and we have less than a one month supply of home based on historic sales data.  This is the lowest inventory has been in over a decade. 

What does this mean for you as a Crofton homeowner?  Well, your home will likely sell for more money with fewer days on market than it might have just a year ago.  Buyers are also willing to make some concessions to get the right home so we are seeing less closing help requested and buyers are sticking to the asking price versus trying to negotiate a bit.

We have buyers that are looking to purchase in Crofton.  If you are thinking of selling your home in Crofton MD, contact The Roskelly today for a free, confidential market analysis to see what your home might sell for based on up-to-the-minute market conditions.  Our team offers free home staging and professional photography along with an Internet  based marketing plan that makes sure your home is seen by the widest audience of home buyers!

If you’re thinking of buying a home in Crofton, now is the time to make sure your agent really understands the market and can position you to win the house you want with your budget in mind.
