Baltimore’s Hottest Houses of 2021


As most people know, the housing market this past year was crazy! There were times when I wrote the Hot House article on Monday, and by the time I submitted it on Tuesday, the sale would be pending, so I’d have to start over with a new house.

All of the real estate agents I know were super busy from about March through August, when things began to slow down. The sweet spot for home prices was between $350,000 and $650,000. The most expensive house I featured was Charlcote House for $4.99 million (now $4.25 mil) and the least expensive was the green mid-century modern house at $239k, which sold within a week for $259k.
