There are many variables related to the relative worth of an end of the line Townhouse. Every property is different! There are no two alike. Always have a professional come out to your property or prospective property to independently evaluate the pros and cons of each and every property before you buy or sell.

Single family home will have a better resale value if put in the same locality as the duplex.
However, a lesser price duplex might attract more buyers (lower price range = more buyers).

Single family home has no neighbors - and privacy is appreciated by buyers.
It has a back/side/front yard - with no one telling you to match your flowers to the siding color, and
kids/dogs can run everywhere.
There is no "discussion" of when to change the roof or siding, or porch (if shared).
Your neighbor won't start defaulting on his mortgage - putting you in an unpleasant situation.
Sudden low resale of your neighbor won't decrease your property value.

Hope this helps,

The Housing Market has really picked up of late - multiple offers on homes, reduced inventory have had a significant impact. There are still many options in Annapolis - some requiring sweat equity but worth th effort to be close to the dock!! ... more

They seem well built and have a nice layout. 3 bedrooms and 2 baths upstairs, kitchen, dinning room, living room and 1/2 bath on entry level and basement. Some have fireplaces and finished basements

Community is well maintained and community owns off street parking. Easy stroll to everything downtown.
if you are concidering the Downtown areas of Historic District, Murray Hill, Actons Landing etc, I would also consider City Gate.

I could probably get that info for you, but that home is not listed for sale. Do you have an interest in the home?

Bernadette Coates answered:
You should have shopped lenders before committing to NVR mortgage and then negotiated your incentives. The fact that you are non-contingent is a major plus for builders. You could have probably asked for the same incentives they are offering with the use of NVR mortgage. ... more

City Gate Lane usually has the best value for your money in the historic district of Annapolis. They are 3 bedroom townhouses, brick exterior, central air, built in the 1980's and have off street community parking lots. Some have finished basements others do not. You can get a townhouse for less than the price of a condo at Acton's Landing located just around the corner.

They are kind of hidden, its an easy street to miss. Making them a hidden jewel in downtown Annapolis.

Does not hurt to try.

But work with your agent and lender to find properties that are within certain conditions / location (if NACA or ACORN has restrictions on them).

At the same time, try to look for other financing options.

Good luck!
