Crofton MD real estate sales & home values September 2017

Crofton homeowners see continued good news in September with new pending sales and closed sales up from last year and at the high end of the five year average.  The supply of homes for sale is low at less than 1.8 months and that means home values are likely to remain the same or increase slightly.  The total number of home sales was 47 with an average sale price of $293,000  and median days on market of 16.  

All signs of a very healthy market and good indicators of the strength of the Crofton market.

Gambrills MD Real Estate Sales and Home Values for August 2017

The Gambrills market is pretty reflective of Anne Arundel County as a whole in August. We saw a decrease in closed sales as compared to last year but it did differ in that the month over month sales were actually higher than July which is unusual.  The average sold price stayed pretty stable with a minor upward tick based on the increase in sales of top dollar homes.

Active listing and months of supply are at record lows, so while the market has cooled, it is still a strong sellers market. The closed sales are down because there simply isn't the inventory to address demand.

If you are a Gambrills homeowner who is considering selling we'd love to tell you about our marketing plan or provide a free market analysis.

Severn MD Real Estate Sales and Home Values for August 2017

We had a little bit of rebounding from the crazy seller's market that we had this summer and ended up with
some disappointing results with a decrease in sales from the previous year of almost 20%. The average sold
price increase 13% over last month which is more the result of higher value sales than an actual increase in home values.

Inventory remains at record lows but even with that the buyer demand isn't keeping pace to move all of the
active inventory.  We're seeing fewer multiple offer homes but those that are properly prepared, staged
and priced well are still moving.  This is the market where you want to make sure that your home is presented
at it's absolute best to distinguish yourself from the competition

Odenton Real Estate and Home Values August 2017

Odenton real estate is always in high demand in part due to it's proximity to our largest
employer in the area, Fort Meade MD and the NSA.  We saw an unexpected cooling of the
market this month with a 25% drop in the total sold dollar volume and a substantial increase
in days on market by 50%.  The median sold price is artificially low in that more expensive
homes were not sold in substantial volume this month.  

Odenton Real Estate August 2017

However, inventory is still at record lows and the best prepared and staged homes that are
priced properly and presented with professional photos are still moving steadily.

If you're thinking of selling your home in Odenton, start with a complimentary market
analysis from The Roskelly Team. We've helped over 100 families sell their Odenton homes

Piney Orchard Real Estate Market Stats for August 2017

The Piney Orchard real estate market in Anne Arundel County cooled off a bit.
this month and we saw decreases in the sold volume which was down 34%
compared to the same period in 2016 and down 38% from the month of July.
Buyers are still out there looking but with the crazy Summer traffic and
favorable market for sellers I think some buyers are just waiting it out.  You
can use our website to view homes for sale in Piney Orchard or recent sales
in the community.

Statistic Aug YoY MoM
Total Sold Dollar Volume 4,704,400 down-33.7% -37.5%

inventory.  There simply aren't enough homes on the market that are priced
right and prepared properly to motivate buyers to move forward.

Two Rivers Real Estate Odenton MD

 Two Rivers  Odenton MD All ages real estate and housing information
Homeowners in Two Rivers were divided on an announcement that the
Koch and Classic Group LLC, master planned community of Two Rivers
is going to be offering new homes with no age restrictions in 2017.
It is expected that the new model homes will be built and ready for
viewing by Fall of 2017.  This changes the existing plans for over 2,000
age qualified homes to a community that will be just 1/3 age qualified

Two Rivers, originally designed as a 55+ community in part because of zoning
restrictions due to school over-crowding, sold over 250 homes before this
announcement was made.  Homeowners who specifically wanted age qualified
living in Anne Arundel County are not necessarily happy about this re-zoning.

Two Rivers is currently divided into four distinct age-restricted villages including
The Bluffs, The Highlands, Regency and The Watershed.

The new "all age" neighborhoods will be known as The Hamlets at Two Rivers
and will be "adjacent to, but separate from, the age restricted Villages".  The
Hamlets at Two Rivers will feature 5 distinct neighborhoods including The Retreat,
Heritage, Overlook & Cascades and will have their own clubhouse as well as
separate indoor and outdoor recreation facilities.

If you would like more information on age qualified homes or all ages homes
for sale in Two Rivers contact us today at (410) 507-2495 or e-mail us at

The Roskelly Team has been serving the real estate needs of Odenton
homeowners since 1999.  Let us help you buy your new construction home
