It also depends on whether it's on the Severn River or the Magothy, with Severn being the much more desirable location.

Hi Richard,

With the influx of BRAC and Cyber Command to the Fort Meade area, rental property inventory is at an all time low. You really can't go just on sold comps you have to have an experienced rental agent see the unit to tell you what it could command in today's market. Arnold is a frequently requested area for military and DOD relocation clients. One MUST DO is to have your unit properly photographed and advertised on-line. Many agents don't take the time to do that on rental homes and you could lose $100 or $200 a month just because your home wasn't exposed to the right quantity and quality of applicants. ... more

We had the same thing happen to our property but you will be surprised if you call the AA County assessment office. Even though your assessment has been lowered it does not necessarily mean that your taxes will be lowered. In our case, our assessment was reduced by almost $80,000 BUT our taxes went up. They even tried to remove our Homestead Tax credit because of the decrease in assessment. I called the assessment office and spoke with someone there who reinstated the Homestead Tax credit but after she explained how they calculate the taxes, they always seem to get their money. They have this formula they use and they will explain it to you in detail. Unfortunately the bottom line is, even if they reduce your tax assessment, it doesn’t mean your taxes will go down. The negative impact when that happens is, your house is assessed (valued) less but you aren’t getting the tax break. Call the number on your bill and speak with the tax assessment office and see what they say about your particular situation. ... more

hi Ben... The direct answer to you question is "until sold".Selling a home in Maryland takes 2-3 days. WOW, you may say, how come some houses haven't sold after 100 days on the web site? Houses on the market can take 6 months to a year due to preparation and promotion. When the preparation is done and the marketing finds the buyer, then job of selling starts. Negotiations(selling) may take 2 or 3 days to get a written agreement between seller and buyer., thus the house is "sold". Next its "off to the races" to settlement. Along the way are home inspections, lender loan reviews and repairs completed. After 30 days for this all to happen, buyers sign the bank papers and get their new home key. Sellers get a check and the Realtor is paid. Start to finish in Maryland can be a year. When do you want to start?? ... more

Hi Ben,

This question is very specific to the area that you're looking in. Real Estate is a local business. Looking at national numbers is confusing and misleading.

Let us know which area you are looking in and I'm sure one of the experts here will give you specific stats.

Good luck in your search!
