2018 started off with a huge start to the real estate market. 2019 is having a similar start. Since I represent both Baltimore area sellers and buyers, follow homes hitting the market as wells as going under contract. I have personally written offers on 4 homes this week in multiple offer situations. It’s a great sign for the economy.
Patterson Park and the 21224-zip code in general is no exception to the active market. Homes in the area are getting a lot more traffic now than they did in the 4th quarter of 2018. The market is alive, and sellers are getting out in front of the typical busy spring season.
Patterson Park has been my home for almost 20 years. I can’t speak for everyone but I’ve stayed here for several reasons. I like being close to the 137 acre park vs the bars and restaurants of Canton, just a little farther south. There is typically always something happening on the park: free concerts, parades, bike races, running races, food truck gatherings, and sports. This section also sits a little farther out from where the traffic jams usually are. Even though Patterson Park is right next to Canton, I feel like I can get to 83 and 895 quicker.
My seller at 9 N Luzerne Ave, Baltimore, MD 21224 just listed at the end of January.

Deciding to become a Real Estate agent in the Baltimore Metro area is no simple task. There is an obvious learning curve when jumping into any new industry. In Maryland real estate, I’d say that curve is about 3 years. It takes about 3 solid years to fully understand the process, laws, contracts, etc. Most things you just need to experience.
