Cynthia McIntyre’s Hot House column grabbed the most eyes this week on Baltimore Fishbowl, featuring a 1,600-square-foot bungalow for sale in Idlewylde for $279,000. With an open floor plan, a finished basement and some crucial upgrades, readers were eager to take a look at the viable dwelling in the county.

Cynthia noted the home has an “elusive combination” of affordability, a safe neighborhood and high-quality schools nearby. As she put it, “these are the big three factors driving first time home buyers as millennials begin, after a slight delay, to enter the real estate market in droves.”
