Our new UrbanLand Company office opening soon in Hampden is making fast progress. It’s time to start keeping an eye on the Baltimore real estate market around key pockets of the city.
“We’re continuing an ongoing series with an eye on homes of various types around major destinations. This time we’re taking a look at homes that are near Johns Hopkins. These properties all push their proximity to the campus as part of the selling points in their listings,” commented Gerard DiRuggiero, Prinicipal Broker of UrbanLand Company. “We’re used to tracking what is happening with homes around major DC landmarks or new retail development – this fun look at Hopkins gives you a quick view on how much lower the costs of buying in Baltimore are in comparison.”
Here’s the full group of “Homes near Hopkins” up-to-date from the MRIS listing system. We’ve kept it to $75,000 and above as a means of weeding out wholesale properties, derelict city properties and other challenging (and tempting) projects for buyers seeking value. Renovation costs more than you think if you haven’t done it before!
Here’s 3 rowhomes near Hopkins that give you different stories in the same rough price range.
First up is a 1,680 sq. ft., 3 level rowhome at 429 Washington Street just two blocks from Johns Hopkins. This home needs a little work at just $129,000 is a strong target for the buyer wanting to put their own finishing touches in.
