Baltimore's Westport: Get In on the Entry Level I suppose if I were selling stocks and had the advice of Warren Buffet, or perhaps if I were talking of a growing company that were moving into the area and hiring, then this might sound like something to which one should listen.  But no, it is neither of those, but rather it is a neighborhood.  Baltimore City is an old and established city, so you may be wondering how you could get in on the entry level.  It is very simple; I am talking about the renaissance of a neighborhood. Westport is on the south side of Baltimore City and an initial look at this region would send one running.  But, slow down, there is a lot more to this neighborhood than meets the eye. Westport is one of Baltimore City's last residential waterfront communities.  An ...

Baltimore: Westport: Wow Since Baltimore began its renaissance a few decades ago, it has made strong and steady steps into becoming one of America's favorite cities. Baltimore created the model and set the standard for downtown redevelopments. It is anchored by its famous Inner Harbor, which includes Harbor Place, the National Aquarium, and the Maryland Science Center.   It has been praised for its often copied Oriole Park at Camden Yard.   It paved the way for the future football stadiums of the nation with it Ravens Stadium.   It has formed strong mutually beneficial ties between businesses, educational institutions, and government.   It continues to improve its transportation infrastructure with efficient green modes of transport. For all of it accomplishments, the best may be just g...

Baltimore City's Last Waterfront Community It is the latest up and coming neighborhood in Baltimore City.  Not only is it on the move, but it is a water front community. The success of Baltimore's Inner Harbor is known throughout the country and even the world.  But all of Baltimore's harbor is not developed.  There is a section on the southwest side of town which is just beginning a serious development that may make it even more popular than the Inner Harbor. This neighborhood is only minutes south of Ravens Stadium and Oriole Park.  In fact, if all plans are put into place, it will be connected via the use of an old railroad swing bridge to the very popular Federal Hill, Locust Point, and Riverside Communities. The neighborhood already has Light Rail running right through it to easily...

Baltimore Investors, Westport is Hot I already posted about what is happening in the neighborhood of Westport in Baltimore City.  I showed several houses which can now be purchased for under $75,000.  All properties which could provide a positive cash flow as rentals. Longer term they should see substantial appreciation as the development in this area progresses. The link below shows similar houses to those found in Westport, but in neighborhoods which are around the Inner Harbor, where the Baltimore Renaissance has been well entrenched for several years now.  These houses, none of which sold for less than $250,000, are an example of the potential for Westport. Examples of Westport Potential Here is my original post. Baltimore City's Last Waterfront Community It is the latest up and com...
