Jerry Kline Helps Parents Purchase Off-Campus Housing in College Park

 This home, located at 9430 Rhode Island Ave. in College Park, Maryland, was recently purchased by clients of Jerry Kline, realtor, Keller Williams Flagship of Maryland. The clients purchased the home as off-campus housing for their two children, who attend the University of Maryland at College Park.

This home, located at 9430 Rhode Island Ave. in College Park, Maryland, was recently purchased by clients of Jerry Kline, realtor, Keller Williams Flagship of Maryland. The clients purchased the home as off-campus housing for their two children, who attend the University of Maryland at College Park.

With two children attending the University of Maryland at College Park, Rob & Rajshree decided it made more financial sense to purchase an off-campus home to meet their daughters’ housing needs. So, the parents contacted Jerry Kline of Keller Williams Flagship of Maryland to help them locate a safe, well-maintained home that allowed for an easy commute to the university. The transaction recently closed.

“The best part of the search was spending so much time on and around the campus,” said Jerry Kline, a 1982 alumnus of the school. “The university is so dynamic and always changing, but helping clients buy and sell real estate in this area allows me to visit my old haunts and maintain my connection with a place that’s been so special in my life.”

The College Park area has enjoyed an incredible real estate boom in recent years, with the Metro Line and several large commercial developments drawing lots of successful professionals to the well-established neighborhoods. In fact, many of the old homes around the university are being completely renovated, and the finished properties are garnering premium prices.

“Not every student is meant to live on campus,” Jerry said. “But those who live off campus need to find secure neighborhoods with ready access to the school.”

In Odenton, Career Day at Waugh Chapel Elementary School!

 Jerry Kline, Realtor with Keller Williams Flagship of Maryland, near Fort Meade, recently spoke about his profession to students at Waugh Chapel Elementary School Career Day. 

Jerry Kline, Realtor with Keller Williams Flagship of Maryland, near Fort Meade, recently spoke about his profession to students at Waugh Chapel Elementary School Career Day. 

What does a realtor do? How does a realtor spend his days? And most important of all – at least to a third grader – does a realtor have to be good at math?

I answered all of these questions and more when I recently visited Waugh Chapel Elementary School in Odenton, Maryland, for its annual Career Day exposition. Moms, dads and other family members like me spoke to students about the various kinds of careers kids might want to consider when they grow up.

 A warm thank you from the students at Waugh Chapel Elementary School who welcomed me to their recent Career Day event!

As I explained to 3rd graders in Ms. Kyte’s class, 1st graders in Ms. Hill’s class and several other groups of students, as with any job, being a realtor has advantages and disadvantages.

 Yes, you do need good math skills to be a successful real estate agent. But technology can be a really big help with this!

The kids clearly liked that realtors usually are their own boss, they have flexible work hours, and realtors can be well compensated. But the kids frowned and groaned when they found out realtors have to work on weekends, spend hours on the phone and computer and do a ton of paperwork.

 Yes, real estate agents do travel a lot as part of their work. But we can often be reimbursed for the mileage we drive.

Still, in learning about what realtors do, the kids were attracted to the overriding theme of helping people in need – which is the most fulfilling aspect of the job for me.

Many heartfelt thanks to Principal Cheryl Cox and all the kids and staff at Waugh Chapel Elementary School for inviting me to participate in your event! Your school is a wonderful environment for learning, and I hope to help each and every one of you find a home some day!

December 2017 Piney Orchard Home Sales: Prices Up Sharply, Supply Lacking

The Fort Meade-Area Housing Community Remains Extremely Popular With Buyers

 Odenton, Maryland's, Piney Orchard residential community faces a severe shortage of homes for sale.

Odenton, Maryland's, Piney Orchard residential community faces a severe shortage of homes for sale.

 

The continued shortage of homes for sale in Odenton, Maryland’s, Piney Orchard community pushed the median home price there up 24 percent last month, according to year-over-year real estate data just released by MarketStats.

The median price for homes sold in Piney Orchard in December was $312,000, up from $251,600 in December 2016. Seventeen homes sold in Piney Orchard last month, while 18 homes sold in December 2016.

 December 2017 data for Piney Orchard, Odenton, Maryland, provided by MarketStats by ShowingTime.

December 2017 data for Piney Orchard, Odenton, Maryland, provided by MarketStats by ShowingTime.

Despite the sharp jump in median home price, Piney Orchard homes took considerably longer to sell last month (65 days), on average, than in December 2016 (37 days). Still, the new data shows there simply are not enough homes for sale in the community to satisfy demand.

The “months of supply” of homes for sale in Piney Orchard last month was 1.8 months. Typically, less than 6 months of supply of homes indicates a market favorable to sellers, while more than 6 months of supply indicates an excess of homes for sale that favors buyers.

The number of homes actively listed for sale in Piney Orchard in December (36) also was well below the five-year average for the community.

Of the 17 homes sold in Piney Orchard last month, 15 were attached homes (townhomes and condominiums) and two were detached single family homes. Buyers in six of those transactions used conventional financing to purchase their properties, four used Veterans Administration-backed loans, four used FHA loans, two purchased with cash and one buyer used another kind of financing.
