Abandoned Housing In Baltimore

Inside of Abandoned Alley House


  1. Great work! I enjoyed the pictures and the commentary. Gave me a much better feel for the city. We other housing bloggers should do likewise for our own local cities to give people a taste of what is going on and what things look like.

    I'll add it to my to do list . . .

    Anyway, it looks like there is some really solid housing stock there. It is sad to see it so run down. Too bad about the schools and crime.


  2. Yeah, this report has been fantastic. By doing these reports, David gets us info you can't get anywhere else.

  3. Thanks for the kind words. I am planning more city reports for Washington, Federick, MD and yet to be determined suburb in Northern Virginia. Stay tuned.

  4. Great work David-

    I have not been to the DC area since 2001 (which is my home town) Been in Connecticut near Hartford since I was 6.
    Baltimore and Washington have some great housing- I remember going up New York Av. in DC- and seeing the fine homes that are run down- a crime invested druggie area. Too bad really.

    Two townhouses now listed in my small 24 unit community- one has been on the market for 4 weeks- the other came on line Friday. I saw two realtors here Saturday and yesterday, showing the units. Both are end units. One has a whirlpool tub- but few other updates-price $164,900.
    See this link (these unites are located in Vernon CT(pop. 30,000) 17 miles NE of Hartford.

    The other unit, This other unit -also and end unit has hardwoof floors on the second level-price $161,900

    Taxes are 2K a year. Self managed -Condo Fee $120.00 a month.

    These units are very popular- small, attractive community-close to I 84, shopping and 17 miles from the University of Connecticut. Close to the popular 'quiet corner' of Connecticut. 77 miles from Boston, 53 miles from Providence, and 40 miles from the ocean beaches. Still cheap compared to most other areas along the northeastern megalopolis.
