A: Buying a home is a big deal, but going in unprepared can put your financial life at risk. Don't overextend yourself in looking for a home that is too big in appearance and mortgage payments
If you purchase a home that is too big and over your needs....not only you are stuck paying more for a mortgage every single month but...a big house needs more maintenance and energy to heat and cool.
Be honest with yourself and consider using any extra money you may have to buy a rental investment instead...of buying a home with rooms that you will never use.
A: The best thing about living in Urbana is having 3 major airports within one hour's drive.

Another smaller airport that is near: Hagerstown Regional Airport (HGR / KHGR), and is 40 miles from Urbana, MD.

There are two smaller airports within a 30-minute drive, mostly for private planes. The Stolcrest Airport and Ijamsville Airport
Yes, you will hear noise from the traffic of all these airports overhead...but nothing above the normal noise you will experience anywhere.
A: Be prepared and set your priorities straight before going house hunting.
Take notes and factor your travel times to I-270 and 355. These two routes are the ones you will be utilizing the most
When you are touring, check for possible parking problems. Where would you park and where would your guests park to help you celebrate your new home.
Neighbor's have the power to make you happy and "very" unhappy. After selling hundreds of homes, I can assure you that there is a high factor of probability that the reason why someone is selling is because they want to get away from their neighbors.
A good Realtor can provide you with tips how to test your neighbors before deciding to buy your house?
A: It seems sometimes that the city and planning commission seem to never say NO to more new homes. It is baffling to know that just because a developer or builder purchases a farm or piece of land. That should not be a basis for building more homes.
There should be more emphasis on providing more affordable communities to a family moving into the area rather than creating more McMansions that eventually transform our society in a negative way.
Please call, as we are informed about any new developments in the area. This changes on a weekly basis. We will be happy to discuss different possible areas to move in around Urbana and Frederick in general.
A: Yes and your Realtor will be able to discuss this with you... when you are house hunting. Just ask...there are well know areas where this is a problem.
A: Young families have an edge when buying condos in the Villages. Some builders have designed condo buildings with top and bottom level condos. The top-level condos are bigger and a better buy for young families if they are ok using "stairs"
Top level condos are not a priority for the most older buyers because of the stairs they have to take to their homes. Your competition is less in these areas if you are considered to be a young energetic family.
A: From time to time we will find a home that simply does not sell for some reason or another. To help you, we developed an exclusive page about this: Home Not Selling Forum and Solutions

A: Judging by the shopping experiences & habits of my wife and 15-year-old daughter...I say it is the Clarksburg Premium Outlets. Just a few minutes away and you have access to over 100 designer stores from Nike, Under Armour to Polo, Hugo Boss and Kay Jewelers. From Michael Kors, Puma and Rack Room Shoes to Skechers, Tommy Hilfiger and UGG. See more here
A: This is just an estimate and you should check with your agent for more accurate numbers.
As an example: If you are buying a home in Villages of Urbana for $400,000
You will most likely need around 3.5% of the price of the house for a down payment
Around $4000 for closing costs related to City, County and State taxes
You will need another $1000 for Radon test, Home Inspections and appraisal
The good news, you and your realtor should structure an offer that will give you a seller's credit to offset your closing cost nearly to zero. (except your down payment)
There are also grants and benefits for first-time homebuyers. You can also get more information reading the "Ultimate Guide To Buying Your First Home In Maryland"
