Baltimore Market Conclusion
Our greater Baltimore Market (Howard County, Baltimore County, Harford County, Howard County, and Baltimore City) is showing signs of true market growth that has not been seen in over a decade. What is driving this growth? Is it the change in our president? or Is it a still low interest rate environment powered by he central bank? or Is it our areas citizens that have been working harder since the great recession to make a better life for themselves and our community? We are not 100% sure, but one thing is for certain; the out look of our local housing market and economy are showing strong signs of forward motion.
Keep it up Baltimore!
