Why Baltimore? City Prices Increase 10.5% Across 2,049 February Closings

Baltimore City turned in strong real estate market numbers for the dead of winter. Homes sold in the city during February showed a 10.5% increase in price over February 2018 levels, the highest increase across the larger overall Baltimore urban/suburban market.

The City’s performance dwarfed fluctuations in price across surrounding Baltimore counties. Howard County prices declined 8% from the prior year period while Baltimore County, Harford County & Carroll County showed gains of 1% – 1.8% versus last February. Anne Arundel County showed no change over last year with a healthy $325,000 per closing.

The numbers are exciting for Baltimore City and are a bright spot among the rest of the Baltimore area’s suburban performance. The actual number of closings across the entire Baltimore region were down 9% over last February. In a market the size of Baltimore, that means a healthy 2,049 home sales closed. Pending sales levels remain high and show just a 2.8% decrease over last year.

“The morale of the story here is that the City remains a bright spot for realtors entering that marketplace with their investor and out-of-city clients. We’ve actually just recently closed our 20th transaction in Baltimore City since we opened our new satellite office in Hampden – a large share of our sales comes from ‘bringing DC money to the north’,” said Gerard DiRuggiero, Principal Broker of UrbanLand Company.

Here’s some things from the trenches in Baltimore that active DC area realtors can appreciate:

  • The city is full of available investor, developer & consumer product at very attractive prices;
  • DC investors & homebuyers with work/location flexibility find it hard to resist the low cost of purchase;
  • There is neighborhood after neighborhood of possible options, each with their own characteristics & dynamics;

For the DC area agent getting inquiries from their clients about Baltimore, or from the local Realtor looking to add incremental volume & transactions, we can help! “We’ve launched a Baltimore showings program where our local team & office can show & sell product in Baltimore for you,” said Gerard. “It is a simple referral-based program, our agents know the city market inside & out, and our office is a great pit stop & real estate center for those making the trip up from DC. The best way to get started is to enroll in the program for free & open up communication with us.”
