Your best bet is getting on Craigslist and going to "Rooms and Shares" and trying to find a home where you will have room mates.

To research a properties owner, you must either have the address or name of owner. You can use either of these websites to find this information:

State Dept of Taxation and Assesments for Tax record.

Md Land Records for deed information.

Hi Tiearra,

I'd love to assist you. There are certain details I need to be most helpful. Are you the owner for the subject property in question? If so, how soon do you need to sale? Tell me more about the property. The last home I SOLD in the 21216 area was 830 Whitmore Ave. I SOLD it in 13 days for $120,000! Sales of 3 bedroom rowhomes in this area range in price from as little as $20,000 or less to over $100,000; depends on location and condition.

CALL ME for a private conversation about your selling, buying or investing needs. I currently have a NEW CLIENT PROMO you could take advantage of; CALL ME.

Baltimore is a medley of neighborhoods ranging from a complete downtown feel to suburbia meets city attitude on the playground of diversity and culture! Coming from NYC & Philly - you should find plenty of areas that will help you feel at home. When I first moved here, some of my favorite neighborhoods were Mt Washington, Hampden, Mt Vernon, Fells Point & Canton. I've lived in or near each of them and am now presiding in the Towson area and overall very happy with the amenities near to me. The city is only 7 minutes down the road with the county and nature in my backyard.

Good luck with whatever you choose! I'd be happy to help you figure out a good fit if you haven't already found a place!

All my best,

Hi Liz - Welcome to the area!

St Agnes puts you into an interesting area because you can choose to be close to Baltimore proper, or head towards Columbia or Ellicott City - which both have great reputations for schools, community and quality of life. They are also the mid-point between Baltimore & DC. So you get the best of both worlds :)

Here are two articles that might help you delve into the areas a bit:

Of course, as many of the other folks who responded reiterated - it always comes down to your affordability, what you are looking to spend each month on a mortgage or rent, size and type of house, # of br's and ba's, etc. If you are new to the area, I would absolutely recommend scheduling an appointment with a local realtor to have a consultation about your specific needs and hopefully identify the areas that will work best for you.

Good luck to you and your search! Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss any of this further!

Catonsville is a great little area but you have lots of options within a 30 minute commute including Howard County, Baltimore County and Anne Arundel County.

If you like shopping & Casinos, Arundel Mills Mall area in Hanover (Howard and Anne Arundel County) has lots of new construction and older homes, Catonsville which has lots of amenities and more affordable single family housing, Ellicott City and Columbia have award winning schools. And lots more options. Get connected with a good local real estate agent to discuss your list of priorities and narrow down your choices. ... more

Hello Tucker,
Fair Housing Laws protects the public from discrimination; hence it prohibits real estate professionals from providing information that can be construed or intended as such.
Here are a couple sites to check on the information you're looking for:

Both neighborhoods are great- it all depends on your personal preferences and what you are able to pay. Your best bet is to sit down with a local Realtor that you trust and go over your options and start your home search. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Remember, it's your life, your style, your home!

Pam answered:
This area is being revitalized. With that being said, I worked with a guy who bought a townhouse near the park and put a lot of remodeling work into the house. He was robbed three times. Two of the times he was at home. He finally moved out since he feared for his safety. Also, his car was stolen. There are still people buying houses and moving in....but this was a personal experience that I wanted to relay. It is a little pricey but you want to look in Canton area. This area will fulfill all of your needs. BTW I live about 10 miles from Aberdeen. Good luck on your new job. I have been trying to get a job at Aberdeen for six months. Cannot get an interview. ... more

Schools official ratings and other info can be found in the states and counties web pages, It is illegal for a Realtor to rate a school. The official ratings change from year to year and are based on a set of guidelines that include education issues as well as goverment madated requirements..
For an up to date report do go to schoos and talk to guidance counsellors and teachers and principals. Attend PTA meetings and public events like sports where you can talk to parents about your concerns. Don't discount what the students themselves have to say about their school.
