Hittin' the Links (3 Interesting Web Links to Start Your Week)

I came across 3 interesting articles/web pages today that I wanted to share. Sorry, they have nothing to do with golf, but hopefully the good local and national real estate information will suffice!

1. According to The Daily Record, Maryland's home sales are showing some signs of life. Decreasing inventory and an increase in the number of houses under contract (but not yet sold) in March are some pretty good indicators of a market that may have reached bottom and is improving.

2. The National Association of REALTORS just put up a new page on which explains the 2009 First-Time Home Buyer Tax Credit. This is a straightforward and simple explanation of a very important development in the real estate world. Thanks to Todd Carpenter (@tcar on Twitter) for sharing this link.

3. Lastly, Marc Pina (@MarcTheRealtor on Twitter) from Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage shared this NY Times article (A New Website Helps Borrowers) and website link ( Mortgage modification help is out there for those who need it, and this should help cut through the noise and determine if modification is right for borrowers/homeowners.
