Depending on what you mean by 'good buy'. There is a lot of inventory in those areas right now so getting a 'deal' might be more likely than in other areas. Highlandtown also has an arts district and is considered a Main St where you can go shopping, eat etc all while on Eastern Ave. Patterson Park obviously has the park which is very large and they also do outdoor free concerts during the summer.
Since there is a lot of inventory, just make sure your agent runs the comps to validate the price you choose.
Good luck!... more

Baltimore appears to be a very attractive market--very inexpensive with pretty good rents. However, people who know Baltimore will tell you that the character of the city changes block by block. You really have to know what you're doing and what you're buying. While I know some people who've done well in Baltimore, I also know some who've gotten badly burned.
Make sure you're dealing with someone who knows Baltimore, who's done this before. Make sure, too, that you've got good management in place. And remember that you're buying solely for cash flow. Forget the "ARV" figure on any properties you buy for rentals. All you care about is a healthy positive cash flow.
Hope that helps.... more
it will depend on how your loan officer looks at the debt & their underwriting requirements. Most lenders are counting the rental properties against the borrower, just in case the renter is unable to pay you now got to cover it.

I would contact BGE and let them know the approximate square footage of the home. They should give you a rough idea concerning GAS, Electric. Concerning the Perk Test, contact Baltimore County to see if you need a wet season test done. If so you need to get on the list to be scheduled. The inspector needs to be there as the test is being completed. Some contractors cost anywhere from $400 to $600 depending the location, etc. GOOD LUCK!!... more

Maryland has no standard for new home sales contract's. New home contract language vary widely from builder to builder. Most contracts contain the language the builder can take up to 2 years to deliver you your new home.

The way Rent to Own usually works: the renter pays more in rent each month to the homeowner. Then the additional rent will be used as down payment when ready to buy. If the renter decides not to buy then they lose all that extra rent. Rent to own is not common around here.... more
