Thanksgiving Tradition In Baltimore The Rome Way

Thankful in Baltimore


Thanksgiving turkey 


Last year on Thanksgiving Day, I ratified the contract on a special home in Ellicott City.

This year I think it may be happening again.

The buyers wanted to come back with a family member before they left town for the holiday.

Being Thanksgiving, they were embarrassed to even ask.

I was pleased to accommodate since our dinner was not until the evening. 

Their concern... someone else might make an offer before they returned. 

We met for that one last look around the house and the decision was made. Write it up. Within the hour the contract was written, emailed to the buyer and signed.

Since my seller was having an early Thanksgiving dinner, there was not enough time today and we will be meeting tomorrow.

Post turkey day is still a thankful time to sign. 


 I like selling a home on Thanksgiving.

This could be a tradition in Baltimore The Rome Way.

I actually showed a house today and my client was really appreciative. I celebrated Thanksgiving with my family about a week ago when and where we could all get together. Congrats Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland

Good Morning Margaret - I can see this happening.  Families get together as ours did and family members use the time to find something closer.  It happened in our family this week but it was done the day before Thanksgiving.

Margaret - that is a good Thanksgiving tradition. No where is it written that ready, willing and able cannot happen on Thanksgiving ... well done!

Thanks everyone for stopping by. It is fun putting up that Too Late sign and getting calls from the neighbors.
