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 starting the 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 pure investor homes that may need substantial rehabilitation. This week we highlight a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom row home at 2156 Druid Park Drive in Woodberry that lets you live Victorian for just $114,900. It’s an end unit with a great covered front porch, nice architectural details and a fenced rear yard. The price leaves lots of room for light interior improvements and updates.
This home is a Fannie Mae Homepath Property, meaning it is a foreclosure and is now past the 15 day waiting period for investor bids. Ask about a Fannie Mae HomePath Renovation Mortgage! Listing information provided courtesy of Your Realty Inc. with data last updated 7/17/2017 at 10:41am.
