Neighborhood Profile: Balmoral Community in Upper Marlboro, MD

Located on Route 301 and Govenor’s Park Lane in Upper Marlboro, MD sits the luxurious Balmoral Community.  Balmoral can stand on its own compared to the larger Beechtree community in which it borders.  However, homes in Balmoral are very “well appointed”.  There are several gorgeous models located here that stand out with exterior brick fronts in trendy gray colors and some with cobblestone fronts.  Lot sizes are mostly 8,000 sqft. with finished interior space ranging from 3,000-6,000 sqft. for the largest Kingsport model.

Distracted Driving Is Dangerous!

I'm sharing this information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) website.  Distracted driving is dangerous, claiming 3,477 lives in 2015 alone. NHTSA leads the national effort to save lives by preventing this dangerous behavior. Get the facts, get involved, and help us keep America’s roads safe.

Famous Last Words....SMH

 Get Involved: Help Stop Distracted Driving

 

We can all play a part in the fight to save lives by ending distracted driving.

Teens

Teens can be the best messengers with their peers, so we encourage them to speak up when they see a friend driving while distracted, to have their friends sign a pledge to never drive distracted, to become involved in their local Students Against Destructive Decisions chapter, and to share messages on social media that remind their friends, family, and neighbors not to make the deadly choice to drive distracted.

Parents

Parents first have to lead by example—by never driving distracted—as well as have a talk with their young driver about distraction and all of the responsibilities that come with driving. Have everyone in the family sign the pledge to commit to distraction-free driving. Remind your teen driver that in States with graduated driver licensing (GDL), a violation of distracted-driving laws could mean a delayed or suspended license.

Educators and Employers

Educators and employers can play a part, too. Spread the word at your school or workplace about the dangers of distracted driving. Ask your students to commit to distraction-free driving or set a company policy on distracted driving.

Make Your Voice Heard

If you feel strongly about distracted driving, be a voice in your community by supporting local laws, speaking out at community meetings, and highlighting the dangers of distracted driving on social media and in your local op-ed pages.

Real Estate Market Conditions for Upper Marlboro, MD Showing Signs of a Seller's Market

You might ask, "what exactly is a seller's market"? Simply put, it's when there are more buyers than there are houses for sale.  Prices rise in seller’s markets due to strong demand and inadequate supply. Over the last 12 months more than 1600 properties have sold in Upper Marlboro.  Yet, there are currently only 400 homes for sale or "active" in Upper Marlboro.  

If you are a potential home buyer in Upper Marlboro, chances are the "seller" may receive multiple offers on his/her home.  In this case the seller will want a full price offer and is more likely to pay only half of your closing costs. Still not a bad deal though!

If you are looking to buy or sell a home in Upper Marlboro, MD consult with me and I'll give you the best possible real estate market advice available.  Contact me at 240-535-1855 or  mailto:angelo@realestateuppermarlboro.com
