Should Sellers Be Home For An Open House?         Well of course NOT!   A few reasons we tell the sellers to "get lost".    Buyers are not comfortable with the sellers around. Buyers don't stay as long with the sellers at home. Buyers will not talk freely with the owners present. Sellers can give away too much information.

Watching a movie outside in the summer brings out the kid in everyone and the Wine Bin on Ellicott City's Mainstreet is the place to do it!Bring a chair or blanket and you can purchase beer or wine inside.  They even provide coolers of ice to keep your drinks cold and sell popcorn and bottled water to benefit a local charity!  Summer movies start at 9pm and are shown on the wall next to their parking lot (park in the large public lot behind them.)  The movie night is popular so stake out a spot early, get a drink and settle in for some classics like "When Harry Met Sally", "Grease" and "The Princess Pride".  Most movies are PG so leave the kids at home and make it a date night!   Want to know what homes are selling for in Ellicott City right now?                    The McIntire Luxury H...
