Clinton, MD Homes for Sale

This past weekend's home showings took my Buyer and I to Clinton, MD to see several properties.  This 4 bedroom, Split Foyer style home was completely renovated and listed for $299,900.  The interior of the home showed well.  However, my Buyer didn't like the back yard.  She was completely "spooked out".  It had a creek running through the property and this old ugly barn/shed.  The back yard also had weeds and many soft spots.  Experience tells me there are drainage issues in that yard and the potential for snakes to crawl around.  Well, that was definitely a show stopper!  Our search for a home continues...…...

Basement Flooding....The Woes of Home Ownership

A few weeks ago my basement flooded again.  Oh, the woes of home ownership!  The Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area had over 63 inches of rain in the last year.  Ground water and water tables persist in Upper Marlboro.  Water seeps in from under my basement floor where it meets the foundation footer.  The french drain (gravity flow system) I personally installed in the front yard didn't seem to solve the problem as the ground water made its way to the front wall of the basement.  

So, I decided to hire a local waterproofing company.  They did a great job and gave me a fair price.  Ask me how much? The labor costs are the bulk of the job.  The contractor had to dig a channel (trench) around the perimeter inside my basement, alongside the footers.  PVC pipe was then installed in the newly-made channel to allow the flood water to flow into a sump pump basin, then pumped outside of the house. 

Here's a video I made of the project..........

Negotiating the Astronomically High Cost to Replace Windows in Your Home

Based on my personal experience using an established home improvement company, the purchase price and installation of one standard size window can range from $300-$700 each.  A bow or bay window alone can cost upwards of $4,000. 

If you are considering replacing windows in your home, do a little homework first.  Google "double-hung vinyl windows."  Get at least three estimates from reputable home improvement companies.  It's a big negotiating game once the salesperson comes to your home for a presentation.  He or she will make recommendations and actually show you a sample window.  Consider the best quality windows of course. 

After a 1-2 hour presentation, the salesperson will quote you an astronomically high price!  This is where the negotiating begins.  Hold your ground.  Don't be forced into overpaying with the promise of low monthly payments for 15 years.  

Please note, financing huge investments like this will normally attach the loan to your house.  What this means is that if you miss several payments on the new window loan, the lender has the right foreclose on your home.
