Carlyn Lowery Exceptional Homes Moves to eXp Realty!

I’m excited to announce that I’ve moved my real estate business to another brokerage. 

My new company is eXp Realty. It was started and built by some of the best people in the industry, and it’s an exciting opportunity. The company now has over 6,000 agents in 46 states, DC, and Canada. More and more of the best agents in the business are moving over.

eXp Realty was just named a Best Place to Work in Glassdoor’s 2018 Employees’ Choice Awards.

This is an opportunity for me to better serve you and the people that you introduce to me, with access to great technology and people. And, it is an opportunity for great agents across the country to enhance their businesses.

If you’d like to know more, please call or write! I’d love to talk to you or anyone you know about the benefits of eXp Realty, and why I made the move.

This move just happened, and I am in the process of moving all of my business systems over to new and better platforms. Please accept my apologies for any glitches during the transition.

Sometimes it works best to talk. So don’t hesitate to call anytime! My direct number remains the same, 443-569-3977.

And if you’re in town, let’s get together for one of the many holiday events that’s happening  around Annapolis (like Midnight Madness this Thursday!)

P.S. Considering a move? Please call for a confidential chat. Your personal needs, wants, and finances are my priority and my passion and my specialties run from waterfront luxury estates to distressed properties.

Call me today for your Annapolis real estate needs, or for a referral to a great real estate agent anywhere.

Anne Arundel County Real Estate Market Statistics August 2015

In Anne Arundel County, the real estate statistics through the end of July 2015 show that this year’s sales have been stronger than last year’s, with 17.47% more homes sold (a total of 4573). However they sold 8.75% slower, with an average of 87 days on market.

The number of waterfront homes sold in Annapolis year to date in 2015 was the same as 2014.  Across Anne Arundel County, sales of waterfront homes were up 6.21% compared to the previous year.  However, the average sold price was down 4.88%.

Here are more numbers on home sales, year to date through the end of for July 2015 vs. the previous year for Anne Arundel County:
County-AnneArundelCountyMD-201507

  • Average Discount Off Original Price: 5.2% (was 4.8%)
  • Average Days on the Market: 87 (up 8.75%)

Whereas the overall statistics show that we have moved into a sellers market, with approximately 4 months of inventory, it is also important to note that average sales prices are down and the average discount taken has increased.

Of course, conditions differ within sub-markets; each price range and neighborhood differs. For example, in Davidsonville, a high-end area, the market has shifted even more dramatically; the number of homes sold year to date in 2015 was up 26.32% compared to the previous year, yet the average sold price was down 7.36%.

Now, more than ever, it’s important for home sellers to pay attention the market activity, and employ smart strategy and top talent, in order to make the best sale.

Anne Arundel County Real Estate Market and Events in Annapolis

The real estate market is starting this year strong in Anne Arundel County, with lots of action in between snowstorms!  In January, 649 homes went under contract, which is more than any January in the last 10 years!  And I’m happy to say that the Glen Burnie home that I wrote about last week has already gone under contract (with multiple offers), and a Davidsonville home that we sold on a lease-option last year closed in February.  We recently helped other wonderful buyers find homes and investment property in Howard County (Ellicott City and Columbia).

Right now I am working with buyers who are looking for

  • a waterfront home on Spa Creek or Back Creek
  • a house in Davidsonville
  • a house where the owners are tired of managing it and would sell on a lease-option or take payments over time

Pickings are slim in the MLS.  Do you know anyone who might be able to help me out with these?

And in other news…. How would you like to improve these cold winter days with toasty, tasty pies?  My friend Ken Haedrich at The Pie Academy was just interviewed by USA Today for today’s article “10Best: Places to get a sweet slice of American pie.”  One of his top ten pie shops, Dangerously Delicious Pies, is here in Baltimore.  I’m gonna have to check it out.  You can learn the ins and outs of pie making at Ken’s comprehensive web site ThePieAcademy.com

How about an opportunity to give locally, supporting people who are short on food? Join the folks at Revolution Annapolis for the Grocery Store Buyout on March 22.  Let me know if you can join me and help empty the shelves at Shoppers Food Warehouse!
