By Scott
January 16, 2017
If you were riding up Chapel road in Havre de Grace recently, you probably saw some bulldozers performing site work on some land across from Bulle Rock. And if you’ve been frequenting this area for a while, you probably remember this happening a few years back, only to stall at some point. Well, now it’s officially in motion, and we’re going to give you a bit of a rundown.

Aberdeen MD Real Estate November 2016

People have been on the fence about the real estate market in Aberdeen, MD. I’ve heard everything from “BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure) wasn’t all it was cracked up to be,” and “they overbuilt the area preparing for what would never happen.” While this could be partly true, I’d like to point out that it could be that the building may have just been done a little too early and that the market in Aberdeen is stronger now than it was at the peak of the Base Realignment. There ...
Harford County Real Estate November 2016

So instead of it taking 91 days to sell the average home last November, it only took 82 days ...

We haven't seen the number of home sales fall on a year over year basis in a while, but we're going to discuss just that. In Havre de Grace, MD, for the month of October 2016, the number of home sales in the town fell by one to 24 for the month. With that, the median sales price remained constant at $270,000, reflecting the type of home you're likely to find in the waterfront community.   It took a little longer to sell a home in this zip code. This year, it took 17% longer to sell a home in Havre ...
What is Going Behind Beards Hill in Aberdeen?
If you’re like me, you’ve taken the back way to Beards Hill Plaza by coming in from Paradise Road, down past Maxa, in order to elude the traffic lights that can be a little slow. With the construction on Route 22, it has become even slower to get through the area, so scurrying down what once was a back road was always a little faster. That’s about to change. The huge swath of land behind Beards Hill, just across from the Jiffy Lube, has been cleared, and is now quietly under development. The site work ...
