No pretense. No staging. What you see is what you get. Willing to negotiate for all or part of the property.
It is located on an island in the Potomac River of Maryland and consists of about 1 ¾ acres of waterfront. The view is wonderful and the access to the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay is “right here”. There is a Cape Cod house, a large garage, a trailer, and a 2nd garage which is currently being made into a studio/apartment. The main house was built in 1947 and, while it has been undergoing renovations, it is like its owner – getting old.
This is the reason why I am marketing the property at this time. It has become a younger person’s property. The remaining renovations and maintenance are no longer a pleasure for me. It has become work.
You can look forward to having rental income. Starting out with built-in equity. The opportunity to replace the trailer with a house (if you desire to do so) because permits are so much easier to obtain for replacing a structure than creating a new one. Privacy – nice neighbors across the road but vacant lots on either side.
Protected creek frontage where you could land a float plane, tie up your power boat – or both. Jump in your boat and go water skiing, fishing, or cruising.

In exchange for House in Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania
Approximate value $ : 500000-850000
What we have come to realize over the last 35 years of buying and selling properties is that unless a property is in the same neighborhood, you are always comparing “apples to oranges”. Therefore, I am not as concerned about the price of your property as I am about the value of your property in terms of our satisfaction and happiness. A property in our area that would market for $1,000,000 might market in your area for $600,000 or it might market for $1,500,000. We know what our property’s currently worth and what its potential is. Finding a new one that is compatible is more important than the price tag hanging off the mailbox. That being said, we are not interested in assuming your mortgages, liens, or encumbrances.
What we seek is a retirement property somewhat like where we are now living:
Rural – but not secluded.
Reasonable property taxes.
Opportunities for cultural activities.
Within ½ hour of a four year college campus.
A military base with a hospital/clinic within 90 minutes.
Water features: river, lake, waterfall on or bordering the property. No beachfront.
Trees and acreage – the more the better.
Strong preference for Pennsylvania or North Carolina. But will consider other beautiful areas that meet our requirements.
