Value tends to vary. Do you see yourself living there for several years until you are ready to purchase a bigger home as a your family grows?
I would recommend you doing some research to see the city plans for amenities for the area and check the area out yourself. I have seen a few negative reviews but people tend to be more motivated to write about a bad experience compared to good one.
The Dulaney Towers community has been popular for many years in part because of the many amenities you get from living there. There is a pool, tennis courts, playground, and currently the monthly fees include these items.
It is a gated community, with guards at the entrance.
You never know what is going to happen to value in any given area. It isn't yet clear if the new proposed construction may be more expensive than the homes currently constructed, which could, in turn, possibly raise values.
There is no knowing who the occupants of a particular rental community will be, or how much turnover there may be.
There are other townhouse communities in Towson, but don't have the gated entrance or the amenities like the pool. It depends what your goal is, and what you really want in the long run.
If you are working with a real estate agent, talk to him/her. You'll need to figure out what is most important to you, to help you decide if this is the right location for you.
If you are not working with an agent, I'd love to talk with you more about your options, and find out what the best place may be for your needs.

I visited ApartmentRatings.com and saw SEVERAL negative reviews of The Quarters. Mostly complaints about the apartments not meeting Luxury standards and the fact the the management company has changed hands several times in a short period.
Again, I am just wondering what the buzz is out there?vis it risky to buy in that area considering the upcoming projects?
