Condos Have Arrived
Coldwell Banker’s Tom Rybczynski (snapped blending in at Walters Art Museum on Charles Street, he's the one in the middle), a Baltimore City realtor for 33 years, says buyers see condos as viable alternatives to townhouses. In times past, he says, only transplants moving to Baltimore from elsewhere would buy condos, but now Baltimore’s own suburbanites are moving into the city, and they’re not afraid of condo ownership. He also says residential construction and renovations (for-sale and rental) aren’t just in Harbor East, Downtown, Fells Point, Canton, and Brewers Hill but are even stretching into Dundalk. It’s staggering, he says, considering the stagnant population growth for the previous generation.
