3 Reasons Your Real Estate Agent Wants You To Bother Them

3 Reasons Your Real Estate Agent Wants You To Bother Them

“I wish I had called you before, but I didn’t want yo bother you. I know you’re busy…”

This phrase is heard all too often in Real Estate. What bothers us more, however, is when you DON’T bother us! Let’s look at 3 things your past or present real estate agent always wants you to bother them for:

  1. You just want to check out a house
    You’re not serious about buying the house. You don’t even want to move. So instead of bothering your agent that you trust or have used in the past, you call the listing agent. Next thing you know you’re making an offer. It may seem like a bother, or think it’s a completely innocent house tour, but it’s not. Call the agent you trust, they prefer it this way.
  2. You want to know how much your home is worth
    You may think you can just do this online, but these “automated” valuations are highly inaccurate! Asking for their professional opinion is never a bother.
  3. You are considering a home improvement project
    Home improvements will increase your home value. Wouldn’t you like to know what projects will give you the most bang for your buck in the future? Call your agent! They are always happy to help as well as give you a list of their trusted contractors.

Reach out to your agent before you do anything real estate related. Your trust is never a bother!

The industrial real estate market in the Baltimore area is expected to remain hot in 2018, with close to 7.3 million square feet of projects are underway or proposed.

Some of those projects include a new Amazon.com fulfillment center in Sparrows Point that will total close to 900,000 square feet , a 1.3-million distribution center for Under Armour in Sparrows Point and a 500,400-square-foot industrial project in Glen Burnie.

Prime waterfront Fells Point property eyed for 300 apartments, townhomes

2001 Aliceanna Street, the 3.5 acre lot that sits along the Fells Point Waterfront, is being proposed for apartments and townhomes by owner Elm Street Development.

It is currently the site of a warehouse and a parking lot being rented out by the National Aquarium for large fish tanks.

This plan would convert the existing 184,962 SF building into a parking garage. It would then build three stories atop the warehouse that would hold 277 apartments. On the adjacent surface parking lot, the developer plans a mix of 23 townhouses and condos, says Jim Mobley, a project manager for Elm Street Development.
