Real Estate Agent with Search Homes for Sale in Maryland at

I have got to say that rentals are pretty active right now in Baltimore City and Baltimore County.  There are quite a few times in the last several weeks that we have made appointments to show a property to a rental client and the property has gone under lease just before our appointment.  I have had clients in the 1400 price range and also the 800 to 1000 price range with this experience.  Now might be a great time for investors who have wanted to start a rental portfolio.

If you want to get started on an investment property give me a call, I would love to help.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!  I have really enjoyed reading everyone's blogs so far and I hope to be able to keep up and provide some thoughtful relevant posts that are up to the AR standard that has been set.  This is such a great opportunity to chew the fat with fellow real estate industry folks. And really so far just some really nice people.

Hi Maggie, welcome to Active Rain.  Rentals do seem to be doing quite well at the moment. No wonder, all the people being forced out of their homes due to short sales and foreclosures still have to live somewhere. Good luck to you!

Silvia, Thanks for the Welcome! 

I am wondering if the rental business will be brisk for the next 3 years? Since 36 months is about how long a short sale will keep you from getting a mortgage?  Some of my tenant clients have been short sale survivors, some were just not yet ready to make a purchase.

We've been hit really hard by foreclosures here in San Diego, so all those people who have lost their homes have to have somewhere to live, and they are turning to the rental market, which is booming.
