Harford County Real Estate November 2016

People in Harford County have been enjoying a thriving real estate market recently! In November 2016, things continued their upward swing, with one little outlier statistic that we still haven’t figured out, although we have some theories. Also, the high sale was one of the largest recorded residential deals in Harford County in many years.

The number of sales in November was up 15.1% over the same month in 2015, and it took almost 10% fewer days for a deal to close than last year. So instead of it taking 91 days to sell the average home last November, it ...

The huge swath of land behind Beards Hill, just across from the Jiffy Lube, has been cleared, and is now quietly ...

The award for the hottest market in our area of emphasis is White Marsh, MD! Not because of the sheer number of sales; more so because of the type of activity. 48 sales occurred in the 21236 zip, and 5 changed hands in the 21162, and while these represented a decrease from September of 2015, the fundamentals for demand are actually greater.

Let me explain.

Last year, there were 167 homes on the market in White Marsh, with only 40 having sold, which means there was more than 4 months’ worth of inventory available. This year, these numbers became compressed, where there ...

I remember as a kid, one of my favorite cartoons was The Flintstones. For those of us old enough, you’ll recall that Fred worked at a quarry, using one of those massive earth-moving machines. One of my most vivid memories was how he reacted when the whistle blew at the end of the day and it was time to go home!

I couldn’t help but think about the cartoon when I saw the massive rocks being shoved around in the picture below, which is ...
