    Yes, another iPhone photo! Daylight makes the camera work well. We weren't expecting as much snow as we received. This was before the storm was over. You can see the snow falling in the foreground -- and an action shot of one on the left! It ended up a very pretty Winter Wonderland that my son loved! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   For any real estate needs in Towson, Maryland or around the Baltimore Metropolitan area, THINK MARNEY IN MARYLAND!   Marney Kirk Keller Williams Excellence Realty 1850 York Road, Suite K Timonium, MD 21093 E-mail: realtormarney@yahoo.com Website: http://www.realtormarney.com Office: 410-560-5858   Cell: 410-493-4884

Five Guys Burgers and Fries Opens a New Store in Towson, MD Five Guys does it again!!  They just opened a new location in Towson.  The new restaurant is located at 936 York Road, Towson, MD 21204 and is conveniently located just inside the beltway (I695) on York Road.  At first glance the restaurant looks small, but don't let that deceive you, there is plenty of seating inside and outside (on a nice day) for you to enjoy their amazing burgers and fries.  Five Guys hasn't messed with their menu either.  They offer their signature burger, cheese burger and bacon cheeseburger and the same range of mini burgers, fresh french fried potatoes and hot dogs along with soda.  All are very reasonably priced.  When we go as a family, we get one large order of fries and share it between the three of...

An old jail in my town of Towson, Maryland is going to have a new life as a pool, office space, and hopefully a cafe. Placed on the National Historical Registry in 1991, the Warden's building, built in 1858, is being renovated to preserve the original details while providing modern amenities.  I am excited that this 1.8 acres is going to be something so useful to the community. Though the pool is going to be private, the public schools around and camps/etc will have access to use. The local senior center will be offered largely discounted memberships. The best part for my neighborhood, is that if you are a charter member, meaning that you pay $2500-$3500 to help build the pool, then that membership becomes part of your household. This means that when someone sells their Towson home, the...

I realize I have written a lot about the Towson Zestimates and how much they have been off in my area. It is not that I mean to harp, but as most of my family & friends know, I am an expert when it comes to house values in Towson. Enter this weekend, with cookouts and family time galore. As usual, the discussion goes to real estate. "I was passing this on the way to your house - how much is it on for?" Of course, I am ready with that information: "$2,495,000." "How about the small one near Charles Street?" "$615,000." (I know my area!) "So, Marney, what is this Zillow Zestimates thing you have blogged about?" Well, here's the PERFECT example as to the difference between TRUE VALUE and ZESTIMATES. List price: $2,495,000. Zestimate: $971,000. Off by over $1.5 MILLION!!!! List price: $615,...

Even though it is not my listing, I can't help but be happy that this house sold. For almost a year I have driven past its sign at least once a day, and was so excited to see the Under Contract sign yesterday morning. What made it sell finally? Price, I am sure! This was a cute cape cod, single family home with a great addition off the back, and fantastic curb appeal, this home was for sale much longer than expected. Yes, it has its drawbacks, namely the busy road, but it is also very conveniently located in close walking distance to a blue ribbon school with tennis courts, playgrounds and lots of open park-like space. So why was this house on the market for 248 days? You can't change location. Its' condition is wonderful. The only thing you can change in price. They began up near $500,...
