I Have The Buyers For A Baltimore Home

Instead of waiting to see what will be coming on the market, I plan to be proactive using this blog platform, my website and my weekly radio show to find a home for this couple moving to Baltimore in a few months. 

The email below, sent by the buyer, is my guideline for finding the right home.



My wife and I are looking for a home under $240,000. We would like our home to be in the Baltimore suburbs with a  neighborhood no more than 20 minutes away from UMBC (University of Maryland Baltimore County). We prefer a single family home, but we are also open to a townhome. My wife would like to have an open kitchen and some outdoor space to grow her flowers.  In addition to an open kitchen and a yard (a small yard is perfectly fine too), we also hope to have at least 3 bedrooms (1 master, 1 study, and 1 guest room for our parents when they visit) and 2 bathrooms. We like a more modern/contemporary style. 

We are planning to visit Baltimore to see houses and make an offer around the second week of June, and we would like to make our move to Baltimore by the end of July. 


 Do you think I can find a home by the time this couple moves to Baltimore?



We found the perfect home!
