The city of Baltimore is looking to raise some cash, so it is hiring an Annapolis appraisal firm to give it the market value on some beautiful and beloved historic properties. The appraisals are intended to give leaders more information to decide whether to sell or lease the historic landmarks.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Baltimore’s Board of Estimates is scheduled to approve tomorrow a $46,500 consulting contract with appraisal firm Westholm & Associates to figure out the next step.

“We’re looking for strategies and options,” said Thomas J. Stosur, the city’s director of planning. “Should the city retain them? Should we lease them to existing tenants? Or should we try to sell some outright?”

See below for a list (with pictures!) of the fifteen properties.

1. Superintendent’s House, Clifton Park
