Tips To Buy a Home In Germantown Maryland 

This article will
help you know exactly what you should be asking during the home inspection of a the home you are purchasing.

First of all, your Realtor should help you pick the
right home inspector.

You will be doing yourself a favor by providing you and your family with a high
level of comfort and peace of mind by doing a home inspection that will pinpoint any types of
problems, disrepair, or breakage within the home you are purchasing.

You must choose a home
inspector that is professional, knowledgeable, and experienced, by asking just
the right questions when you interview them. Remember it is your choice to hire the inspector and not your Realtor.

What questions to ask if you are buying a new home in Germantown MD?

First, you will
want to know exactly what areas of the house they will inspect?

Some inspectors include as a normal procedure to go inside the attic or go up onto the roof.

For example, some inspectors will only include a binoculars inspection of a roof. In some cases this may be OK, but if the house you are buying is older and has some visible signs of wear, you may want to take a closer look into the attic and the roof.

Make sure you ask the the
inspector for a copy of the checklist they use for inspections before hand, by doing so you
will be able to look and see what exactly they will cover. If the inspector refuses to do this and does not want to give you a copy, it may be time to find a different home inspector. .if you have any reservations, speak to 
yourRealtor for guidance.

Is the home inspector qualified? 

Another very important thing is to make sure your home inspector has their certifications and license in order. A home inspector that is a
professional will have all their certifications and licensing readily available for your to inspect. You should ask what area of
inspections they specialize in, rather it be commercial or residential. This is
an important criteria because you want to ensure that the inspector is experienced in 
residentialinspections.

Another great tip when you are buying homes in Germantown Maryland is that you should also
question the home inspector’s 
experience, how long they have been
inspecting in 
the area. Are they familiar with the State codes.  New or general experienced inspectors are OK to work with, however if your home inspector is from Virginia or DC and doing a home inspection in Germantown, they may not be familiar with all the codes thestate of Maryland has for standard building practices.

This is for the simple reason that they will likely have knowledge and act upon it if the house does not meet the code and standards for Germantown MD.

How much should you pay a home inspector? 

This is a very important aspect for your home inspection. How much they will charge you. you will
want to know this up front. It is not uncommon to
expect an inspection to cost anywhere from $350 to $600, it all depends on
several factors within the home, such as the size, type, location and age.

“The Neighbor From Hell” . . Welcome to the Neighborhood!

"The Neighbor From Hell"


Q: I just arrived in DC yesterday. Before my movers were scheduled to come I had a guy come out to give me an estimate on putting a fence in front of the rowhouse I just bought. I haven't even met my neighbors yet. And the next thing I know my neighbor if raising his voice at me telling me that "we are going to have a problem" if I put up a fence and we are going to be getting off on the wrong foot. Never mind the fact that I had literally met this man ten seconds prior to this. I went in the house and listened to the fence guy and honestly won't do the fence because it is way more expensive than I anticipated. But I don't want to make this guy think that he won. He kept on going on about how the neighborhood used to be a certain way and there is his mom has been there fifty years and he grew up in this house and no one else on the block has fences. 
 
I am really at a loss. I have read over and over how you should be mindful of older residents and try to be accommodating, but I literally don't know what to do when I get accosted about something I'm only thinking about doing only 24 hours after moving in. 
 
I'm thinking about putting a fence up for spite. 
What would you guys do?


Question asked and answered on DCUrbanmom.co

 
A: Definitely don't do anything just for spite.
The moment you do that..
you lose
your honor
and
your principles.. .

Pretend this person is crazy and deranged …which most likely he is.
Pretend he is a child living inside an adult body
I would ignore him and simply go on living with purpose. . .

Many years ago, I  sold a house before when the neighbor refused to help us tidy his yard…
he was yelling at my clients from his front yard, deranged and all crazy
 ..cussing them for daring in asking  him to cut his grass.

There was no HOA on the neighborhood and neighbors in general kept their yard tidy and neat..

Except this neighbor from hell.
The bully of the neighborhood

He was definitely making my listing look bad…
Potential buyers were driven away. . who wants to live next to foot high grass with trash littered all around?

"Most real estate experts all agree that curb appeal is one of the most important aspects to consider when selling your home. 
When selling, it's the appearance from the street that determines if the buyer never gets out from their car or not "

In this case…buyers and Realtors were not even getting out from their cars!

Q: Where are all the good deals now that foreclosures in Maryland have decreased numbers? 
 
 

A: I got news for you. Foreclosures have NOT decreased, on the contrary, foreclosures for the state of Maryland have increased when you compare it to last year’s numbers.
According to the latest “Corelogic National Foreclosure Report” Foreclosures in the nation,  have dropped down 34.3 overall since December 2013. The bad news for Maryland is that we are in the top 7 states with the most foreclosures as of February 2015

Is hard to understand that Maryland is put with the like of Florida, Nevada, New Jersey and a few other states that are well known to be always in trouble when it comes to jobs, deficits and housing speculation.
Why are we ranking so high in foreclosures when we lead in the jobs market and low unemployment numbers?
The answer is simple, Maryland simply was too protective of its citizens, providing us with all types of programs and benefits to keep lenders from foreclosing their properties.
There are families still living in Maryland that did not make a single mortgage payment in the last 2 years…some even longer!
 
Completely different of what our neighbor state of Virginia did for its citizens. Not only they did not protect them… but encourage

Should You Buy a House Now…or Later This Year? Maryland Real Estate

Author: Fernando Herboso / Category: German Town Maryland Homes, Germantown Maryland Homes, Milestone, Restaurants

Ask the tiger of real estate

 

from: http://www.reallynicehomes.com/blog/should-you-buy-house-now-or-later-year/

 

 

Q: My wife and I are having a discussion. She says we should buy a house now and I really think that we should wait for later on the year to buy and see if prices get cheaper… Who is right? Do you think prices will come down? 

 

A: A great question to ask and congratulations my friend…you have a very smart wife!

Aside the fact that the decision to buy a home should be timed based on your needs and not the market, let me give you an explanation of what we are expecting on prices this year.

A recent post from Keepingcurrentmatters.com indicated the cost vs price difference in housing for 2015 to be higher at the last quarter of 2015.

This is a little hard to understand from a buyers point of view, specially if you are not a regular follower of real estate market statistics…

But here’s a brief explanation what this means for you:

Should I buy a house in the first quarter of 2015?

or 

Should I buy a house in the last quarter of 2015?

A nationwide panel of real estate experts, including economists  and investment market strategists have predicted that home values will appreciate for at least 4% by the end of the year

Additionally as they look at mortgage rate form Freddie Mac most recent commentary and projections, there is a consensus that interest rates will appreciate to 4.5 by the end of 2015

What is the bottom line if you buy now or wait until the end of the year?

This is a demonstration of what is your bottom line if you wait to buy now in dollar amounts 

Taking as an example buying a typical $250,000 home today.

buying homes

 

Easy to understand.

If the economists are right, for a $250,000 house, you will be paying $172.32 more per month. .

On a typical 30 year mortgage, you will end up paying a total of $62,035.20 more at the end of your loan.

 

Now the question comes again..

Should I buy a house in the first quarter of 2015?

or 

Should I buy a house in the last quarter of 2015?

The answer is YES if you want to save around $60,000 in the next few years…

And you should buy your wife a diamond ring. ..for saving you all this money!
