Odenton Maryland Home Sales

A summary of key Odenton, Maryland, home sales statistics for March 2015, provided by RealEstate Business Intelligence.

Home sales in Odenton, Maryland, were largely flat last month, with several key numbers little changed from the same period one year ago. One big exception to that trend, however, was the number of home sales that closed in Odenton in March. Closings were down 27 percent from March 2014.

Among other key findings of the latest Real Estate Business Intelligence (RBI) report:

– the number of new listings in Odenton in March (61) was down 6 percent from March 2014 (65);

– the number of new transactions awaiting closing (70) was up 3 percent from March 2014 (68);

– the median price for homes sold in Odenton ($283,500) was down 1 percent from last year ($286,000);

– the number of homes listed for sale in Odenton last month (121) was basically the same as last year (124); and

– the average “days on market” for homes sold in Odenton in March (78) was slightly more than in March 2014 (74).

Another key sales metric watched by realtors is the average “sold-price to original-list-price” ratio, which gives home sellers a rough idea of what price they can expect to get from their home sale based on a realtor’s pricing strategy. In Odenton in March, average final sale prices for homes sold were 96.8 percent of the original list price amount.

Anne Arundel County Property Owners Face Stiff New Vegetation-Removal Rules

Effective April 16, prior county approval is needed to cut, prune or remove vegetation within 1,000 feet of tidal waters, tidal wetlands

e22e05d1-28d0-449e-b94e-6565a2e08104_1

Anne Arundel County property owners seeking to cut, prune or remove natural vegetation anywhere within 1,000 feet of tidal waters or tidal wetlands must now obtain prior approval of such activities or face stiff penalties.

Under new county regulations that took effect April 16, affected property owners must submit — and obtain prior county approval of — a standard vegetation/buffer management plan before removing any existing natural vegetation within key areas. Such areas include designated Critical Areas, buffers and expanded buffers, areas subject to Forest Conservation Easements and all properties containing bogs and bog buffers.

Property owners, contractors and other individuals found performing unapproved work on site are subject to fines, mitigation requirements and civil and/or criminal prosecution.

The new vegetation-protection initiative was adopted under Anne Arundel County Legislative Bill 93-12. The county’s Department of Inspections and Permits recently issued a formal notice to local arbor contractors outlining the new requirements.

The legislation contains certain mitigation (replacement) requirements for existing natural vegetation approved for removal and includes allowable clearing thresholds for affected properties.

The county’s notice to arbor contractors clarifies that activities involving earth disturbance, including grading, hardscaping and other construction and development activities, remain subject to a standard grading plan, and cannot be approved under a standard vegetation/buffer management plan.

For more information on the new rules, contact the county’s Code Compliance Division/Forestry Section at (410) 222-7441.
