I always enjoy taking Baltimore buyers to Canton, Fells Point, and Federal Hill to see the newly rehabbed CHAP credit houses. I like to show my clients how different each row home can look in the inside. In many cases, buyers go thru the listings looking at the exterior picture and deciding if they want to see it or not. These fully renovated row homes can be quite the surprise once you open the front door. As an agent and investor, I like to see each builder’s creative layouts, trendy finishes, and space-saving ideas. It’s good to see these with buyers too so you can see what things are immediately liked and how one layout mistake can ruin an entire sale.
I am working on 261 S Ann Street in the Fells Point / Butchers Hill area. Here is what it looked when I bought it:
I bought it because of the great location. The owner of this home will be able to leave their car parked all weekend because of how close the area’s attractions are to their front door. The home itself is wide and deep. As we were planning out the rehab for this, we were excited to be able to keep the historical rounded staircase. Much to our surprise the wood floors throughout are completely salvageable!
Systems are going in. Kitchen cabinets have been ordered. Soon drywall will be hanging and the fun starts. Selecting tile, lights, handles, faucets, paint colors, etc. is when you can really start to see the house come together.
I’ll post an update once that starts. You can see more pictures of the progress on my CrabbyHomes FB page. Click “albums” too see all the before and construction photos. I am an active agent in the popular city of Baltimore with a tigh grip on the developement in the area. Let me help you get a CHAP credit rehab BEFORE it hits the market!
