You know it is funny how the banks are now doing this and years ago is was and may still be not accepted practice for the average Joe investor to do the same thing. The homeowners were crying they didnt know they sold their home to the investor.once they got back on their feet. Hmmm...

To Ronald's Points: 1. Builders customarily do not pay the front foot fees in any new community. 2. Of the scores of homes mentioned in the 15+ posts I've done for Odenton Patch, I was the listing agent for only one property, 2255 Misthaven Lane, and that property was already under contract well before the home was mentioned in a post. (The property was listed along with 12 other homes in a table in the post.) Indeed, I go out of my way not to write about any of the homes I list, and very much strive to offer local residents facts and guidance on homebuying homeselling, rather than trying to sell them anything. 3. Why list my employer, location and contact information? First, listing my professional affiliations and training add credibility to the information I share. And second, readers of my posts often have follow-up questions about the material I present.

Ronald, Suggest you work on developing a sense of humor and get therapy for the doom and gloom outlook. Your best new friend, Edward

Tell the people out of work (still over 8%) that the recession is over.

I'm glad for this as it get's my house advertise as I'm a For Sale By Owner (FSBO). I'm retired after 20 plus years in the services and many tours over in the middle east. I'm moving and was glad to hear from a neighbor that our house was listed here. We had quite a few people Sunday during our open house and 3 repeat visits this week. Plan on having another open house this Sunday 26th 1 - 3 pm. Keep up the good work. On the other issues the news had new home sales up. Jobless rate up and home values down. JR
