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
since 1999.  We would love to represent you as well to get you top dollar in the lowest
possible days on market.

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

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
