Listening to various buyers, I started listing what they said was important when buying a Baltimore home. These things come after selecting the right location, condition, style and of course price range.
Here are a few, and they are in no particular order.
Kitchen: open floor plan, white cabinets; double ovens; center island; gas cooking, stone or quartz counters; a single large sink; and a walk-in pantry.
Parking: two-car garage, carport, but, at the minimum, definitely off-street parking.
Butler's pantry for those who like to entertain.
Main-level primary suite and laundry on bedroom level.
Mudroom or a suitable place to unload groceries, packages, and hide shoes and coats with lots of hooks and storage.
Wood flooring/or high-quality engineered wood.
Double vanities and at least one bathtub. Large built-in showers with a seat and frameless enclosures.
Home office, maybe more than one.
Multipurpose lower level with bath, walk-out, storage, and flex room for play, exercise, hobbies, and guests.
Outside- privacy from existing neighbors, fencing, and mature landscaping. Note: Too big of a yard can scare buyers away with the thought of too much maintenance.
Good security and electric car hook-ups.
Knowing which items are mandatory and which are just nice to have is essential when working with buyers.
This is what my buyers are asking for in Baltimore. How about your area?
