The traditional housing co-op involves the formation of a corporation for the purpose of acquiring title to a multi-unit building and, in turn, leasing individual units (apartments) to the shareholders of the corporation; whereas condominium ownership involves acquiring title to individual apartments or units. In fact, condominium ownership is, for most practical purposes, only one form of cooperative housing and, like the co-op, must include provisions for management and maintenance of the building(s) and common areas, usually dictated by an elected Board of Managers, in the case of a condominium, and a Board of Directors in the case of a co-op. Co-op ownership represents an interest (i.e. stock) in realty; condo ownership is actual ownership of realty. ... more

I'm, Jocelyn Rolle, your local Realtor. I would be honored to assist you with all your real estate needs. I will ask a few questions to set up a search for you. How many bedrooms and baths would you like? Are you open to fixer-uppers? What are your must-haves for the property? What are your desired items in a property? What are your deal-breakers in a property? What is your desired price range for properties in the 21209 areas? What is your maximum price range?
Please provide your name, main contact number and email along with the best time to contact you. Feel free to contact me by email at or phone at (443) 379_4582. I hope to hear from you within the near future. Thank you and have a safe and wonderful day!

I would be glad to help you with your search in those areas. I have recently sold homes in Hampstead and its a great area. You can get a lot of house for the price. It would be better if we talked live so that I can get some more information from you so that we can refine your search to meet your criteria.

Great question! Also let me commend you for being in good condition, financially, at just 20 years old. 2 years ago you would have had a lot easier time than today, but most lenders are going to require 3 active credit lines in good standing.

That said, what is a credit line? Of course credit cards, auto loans, personal credit etc, which you said you do not have.....but what about: Have you paid rent to a landlord or servicing company? Do you have a cell phone in your name that is on a contract-not prepaid or MtM? Do you have any bills in your name-BGE, Phone, Car insurance? Some lenders will use these as trade lines if you have proof-or a statement-from them saying you have paid on time.

If you have none of these, then you will have to establish some trade lines and pay on them for 60-90 days as Dan said. Your best bet is to talk with a good lender in the area and they will help you to establish what you need. If you need some great suggestions for lenders, contact me and I will pass along some recommendations.

As a side note, if any of the above options are possible with trade lines and you can find a home, you could still qualify for the $8000 first time buyer tax credit!

Don't hesitate to contact me if I can be of any or 443-912-4866

Hi Tatjana,

I did a search on our site for 5700 Cottonworth Ave and our site brought me to the link below which shows available homes near this address. I also refined the list to show only townhouses and condos with 2+ bedrooms.
