The Roskelly Team Fort Meade MD area real estate specialists

We're starting to see some changes in the local real estate market.  I just finished up some stats for Anne Arundel county where we saw an increase in inventory for the first time in forever...along with a decrease in sales.

Howard county is not yet feeling the the full effects of these changes with an overall increase in new listings of almost 13% and an increase in sales of only 7%, leaving a little inventory behind which is much needed to get us back to a balanced market.  

The market is still overall in the seller's favor and you'll need some sharp negotiating skills if you're buying in this market.  Put the power of The Roskelly Team to work for you today by starting your home search online with us at www.FortMeadeHomes.com or by calling (410) 721-6694.

June 2021 Fort Meade Real Estate and Home Sale Statistics For Anne Arundel County MD

Fort Meade MD real estate statsWe're finally starting to see what we've been "feeling" in the market for a couple of months now.  Inventory is climbing and demand is dropping.  Newly listed properties climbed almost 16% over the same period in 2020, while under contract properties dropped by almost 10%.

At first, I thought we were seeing a real, market driven change but thinking back to these last 4 - 6 weeks I'm seeing friends all over Facebook.....VACATIONING!!!  Now that many of us are vaccinated and pandemic restrictions are lifting in most areas, people are traveling and having fun.  We haven't had that buyer audience absence since 2019.  I believe this is likely the biggest factor contributing factor along with buyers who have just given up because the market was too competitive.

So, if you're thinking of buying but have been waiting the market out, NOW is the time to start your Anne Arundel County home shopping again!  We're seeing seller help come back in to play and there are fewer multiple offer situations.

If you're thinking of selling your Anne Arundel county home, you're still in an overall seller's market and our real estate staging, marketing and photography places our listing stats in the top 1% of the Anne Arundel real estate market.

Buying a home near Fort Meade MD in a crazy real estate market

If you've been searching for your new home near Fort Meade MD, chances are you've faced multiple offers and some really crazy bidding wars.  If you have a lot of expendable cash and you're buying your forever home, investing in real estate (even in this market) is probably a good idea.  

If you're a military family or don't plan to be in the area long term it can feel pretty bleak right now.  But rest assured, the market is changing as we see potential homeowners "give up" and more inventory come on the market we're seeing full price (or market value) sales with some to include closing help.  A much needed form of assistance for military families in MD as our closing costs average about $12,000 on a $400k home.

We aren't sure if this is a temporary lull but know NOW is the time to start looking or start looking again!

If you've been on the fence about buying, give us a call at (410) 721-6694 or visit us on-line at www.FortMeadeHomes.com to start your home search with us today.

April 2021 Fort Meade Real Estate and Home Sale Statistics For Howard County

The Fort Meade real estate market continues to remain a strong seller's market though not as strong as surrounding Anne Arundel and Howard Counties.  Inventory for April remained on par with the same period in 2020 but we had a 16% increase in the total dollar volume sold and a 40% decrease in days on market.  Pending sales were up 42% and the majority of the homes financed went to conventional loan home buyers.

We do expect this trend to continue though we are seeing buyers withdraw from the market due to the heavy competition.

April 2021 Fort Meade Real Estate and Home Sale Statistics For Anne Arundel County

If you are following the Fort Meade real estate market you'll want to zoom in on Anne Arundel county, nearest the base to get a feel for market conditions.  This month saw a record 65% increase in the total sold dollar volume as compared to the same period in 2020.  The average sold price is up 20% and days on market are down by almost 50%.

The total number of homes for sale including newly listed properties was up slightly overall, but the majority of those homes went under contract within days or weeks leaving us with a deficit in inventory.

Interest rates remain at records lows even after a slight increase and buyer demand continues at record levels.  The vast majority of homes that sold were financed with conventional loans and closing cost help from sellers to buyers is very hard to come by.
