Timonium House SOLD

January 30th, 2009

Baltimore area sellers are finding new ways to draw buyers to their homes. I visited a Broker's Open on Wednesday at a townhouse in Timonium. The price? $299,900. The four neighbors also on the market? $319,000-$330,000 and have been for sale from 60-278 days. Guess which one is expecting multiple contracts and will probably get [...]

Icy Weather and the Baltimore Real Estate Market

January 28th, 2009

Well, we have a thick layer of ice over the nice snow we had last night. What this creates is a slippery mess -- and a stoppage in the real estate market here in Baltimore! Driveways to homes in Towson and Timonium can be slick, so it is best to stay home during this kind of weather. [...]

January 19th, 2009

Well, last night of course did not go as hoped with the Ravens' playoff drive ending in a 23-14 loss in Pittsburgh. The loss was marred more by the terrible injury on Willis McGahee, who was carted off the field with 3:29 left in the game. The hit was hard -- the helmets crashed, and [...]

Baltimore Ravens Fans show Baltimore Pride

January 12th, 2009

Well, I just returned from Tennessee where the Baltimore Ravens WON their playoff game -- and have advanced in the playoffs. What I was BOWLED over by, AMAZED by, AND PROUD OF, was the number of Ravens fans who traveled for the game! The pre-game rally that WNST 1570 held at Nashville's Graham Central Station had [...]
