Most people who know me, know I specialize in unique and unusual properties.
Those that are old, maybe historic, contemporary homes, Deck Houses and homes that have been on the market with other agents and not sold.
The houses that agents say cannot be sold or will never appraise because there are no comps, the difficult listings...they are the ones I want.
It is not unusual for my properties to have a higher DOM (days on market) count. My properties are not cookie cutter homes or what I refer to as 'Cloneonials'.
Maryland and many other states love 4 bedroom brick colonials with a side loading garage on a half acre lot. They also want move in condition and, of course, in the 'perfect' school district. Being close to major roads for easy commute but yet quiet less traveled streets are also desirable.
The majority of agents say any home that does not sell is overpriced. Granted in many cases that is the reason.
But check out some challenging, one of kind properties that just have not found the right buyer.
Homes have been sold by me that were ON the railroad tracks or had their yards abutting the beltway. One property was a 2 bedroom house with 5 bathrooms, no basement, a pool, adjacent to a beltway exit and... had five agents before me.
I have sold the biggest house in the neighborhood and the smallest. I sold the over and the under improved house.
