2017 Housing Market Outlook!
2017 HOUSING MARKET STARTS STRONG
The new year has started out promising for the housing market in
Maryland, with a 6.8 percent increase in January in Harford County and Baltimore homes sales,
according to the Maryland Association of REALTORS®, (MAR). Both
average and median prices rose by 6.6 and 8.4 percent respectively, as
compared to the same time period in 2016. Except for four
counties—Queen Anne’s, St. Mary’s, Talbot and Washington ---- the
state’s markets posted exceptional gains in prices.
“The strong start to 2017 is very encouraging for the residential
sales market,” said MAR President Shelly Murray. “We believe the rise
in pending units or houses under contract of 13.4 percent from January
2016 is an indicator for a vital, strong spring market for 2017,” added
Maryland monthly housing statistics are compiled by data as reported
by MRIS and the Coastal Association of REALTORS®. For the purposes of
this report, “units” are defined as the closed sales and “pending
units” are properties under contract. Months of inventory are based on
the current active inventory and monthly sales for the corresponding
HARFORD COUNTY REAL ESTATE
There was an increase in total units sold in May, with 406 sold this month in Harford County Real Estate versus 344 last month, an increase of 18%. This month's total units sold was higher than at this time last year, an increase of 2% versus May 2016.
Last May, the median sale price for Harford County Homes was $243,000. This May, the median sale price was $260,875, an increase of 7% or $17,875 compared to last year. The current median sold price is 6% higher than in April.
This month there were 577 homes newly listed for sale in Harford County compared to 544 in May 2016, an increase of 6%. There were 438 current contracts pending sale this May compared to 372 a year ago. The number of current contracts is 18% higher than last May.
As you can see the spring market is heating up as summer approaches and there is new inventory to choose from. With interest rates starting to rise now is a great time to buy and with prices increasing the market is as strong as it has been over the past couple years.

Alternative to Foreclosure in Maryland
Why a SHORT SALE may be your Best Option
What is a short sale in Maryland?
It’s likely you’ve heard the term “short sale” thrown around quite a bit. But what, exactly, is a short sale in Maryland? A short sale is when a bank agrees to accept less than the total amount owed on a mortgage to avoid having to foreclose on the property. This is not a new practice; banks have been doing short sales for years. Only recently, due to the current state of the housing market, has this process become a part of the public consciousness.
To be eligible for a short sale, you first have to qualify! We are Baltimore County Short Sale Realtors and Harford County Short Sale Real Estate Agents.
To qualify for a Short Sale in Maryland
a.) Your house must be worth less than you owe on it, and
b.) You must be able to prove that you are the victim of a true financial hardship, such as a decrease in wages, job loss, or medical condition that has altered your ability to make the same income as when the loan was originated. *You cannot qualify for a short sale if you simply want to move, as the bank will scrutinize your financial records to confirm financial hardship. I meet all of these criteria. What do I do now? Once the bank is on board, the real work begins…
1.) Find a QUALIFIED agent to handle your short sale in Maryland . It’s a good idea to find one who has completed at least 30 successful short sale transactions, as short sales require a very specific skill set. Knowing how to successfully navigate pitfalls and avoid potential delays is key to the success of the transaction. Read through our short sale expertise throughout this site.
2.) Speak to a certified accountant to determine if there are tax ramifications. If you’re listing your primary residence (meaning that you have occupied the property for at least two of the last four years), you will more than likely be exempt from any IRS penalty. However, that’s not always the case, and in some instances on primary, secondary, or investment real estate you may have some liability. Remember, real estate agents cannot give tax advice, so be sure to see an accountant prior to starting the process.
3.) Put together a short sale package for your agent to submit to the bank. The short sale package should include: Your last two years’ tax returns Your last two months’ bank statements An authorization letter granting your agent permission to speak to the bank on your behalf An itemized accounting of how much money you make per month versus what you’re paying out in bills A financial hardship letter. (Your agent should help you write the letter.) Give all of the information and paperwork to your agent and get that property listed! *Once your agent has listed the property do not communicate with the bank anymore. All communication from this point forward should be handled by your agent. Remember, dealing directly with the bank can cause confusion and lead to unnecessary delays.
Once you’ve completed these steps, you can look forward to selling your property and moving on! Bear in mind, the short sale process is extremely complicated, and best handled by a trained, experienced professional. If you need further information on short sales please contact us! The information above is just an overview for consumer education purposes. There is much more involved in completing a successful short sale! Contact Robert to find out if a short sale is right for you. We are Short Sale Agents in Maryland, Harford, Baltimore, Cecil County

Are you delaying listing your Maryland home
until the season begins? Many believe sales in Harford and Baltimore County and prices tend to peak in
the spring and summer. However, this year is different. Jonathan Smoke, realtor.com®’s
chief economist, stresses in his latest column that the conventional
wisdom isn't correct this winter. Here’s why: At the beginning of 2017,
inventory levels plunged to multiyear lows. Sellers are currently facing
very little competition, he says. Mixed with that, buyer demand is
“abnormally strong for the off-season,” Smoke writes. “The climb in
interest rates that started in October and accelerated in November and
December has created a sense of urgency among buyers.” With interest
rates largely forecasted to move higher this year, buyers are more in a
rush to lock in a low rate sooner. Plus, your sellers may have to worry
about lending rates as well; Smoke estimates that 85 percent of sellers
are planning to buy another home after they sell. Here’s the best tip,
Smoke says: “If you are thinking of selling and buying in 2017, the
early bird may get the worm. And the best new nest.” Source: National Association of Realtors®
