Planning a Holiday House-Hunting Trip?

Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc., Crofton, MD 21114

If relocation to Maryland is in your short-term future, you may be considering a house-hunting trip during the week between Christmas and New Year.   No doubt Anne Arundel County is on your short list if your new job is anywhere in the D.C. - Baltimore Metropolitan area, including Fort Meade, Andrews Air Force Base, BWI Airport, or Annapolis.

Annapolis Main Street

While you're here, you may want to stay at a Bed & Breakfast in Historic Annapolis, where you can experience both history and modern-day Anne Arundel County.  There are more than a dozen locations within walking distance of the U.S. Naval Academy, the Annapolis Harbour, and Eastport - not to mention the wonderful restaurants and shops.  Or perhaps you'll want to try one of the Historic Inns of Annapolis - for a meal, if not to stay.  And, if you're planning to be here for New Year's Eve, check out Sailing into 2009 - a celebration of the Arts and Community in downtown Annapolis. 

If you plan to focus your home search in the Bowie or Crofton area, Comfort Inn and Conference Center is the closest place to stay for your house-hunting trip.  It's located in Bowie, at the intersection of Rt. 50 and Rt. 3 - about 2-3 minutes from my office at Long & Foster in Crofton, 15 minutes from Annapolis


The holiday season is actually a great time to buy a home.  Homes on the market are usually beautifully decorated for Christmas, so they're fun to inspect, and home-sellers are extremely motivated.  If they weren't, they would have taken their homes off the market until after the first of the year. 

Give me a call before you head to Maryland so I can have some relocation materials ready for you when you arrive.  In the meantime, check out your Anne Arundel County Online Relocation Package and use the following links to browse through home listings at your own pace.


When you do come for your house-hunting trip, be sure to bring the information you'll need for loan application - names and addresses of lenders, account numbers, names and addresses of employers, and names and addresses of current landlord or mortgage company.

'Looking forward to meeting you soon!
