Parks and open spaces continue to be an enormous draw for all ages. The Roland Park community has been working diligently to preserve, improve and even create new green space right here in Baltimore City. The Open Space Campaign for Greater Roland Park selected three projects. The final project, and the largest in scope, is the purchase of the surplus land from the Baltimore Country Club. For almost a half century, the threat of large-scale development on the 17.5 acres of open land at the Baltimore Country Club (BCC) has been a source of community concern. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a permanent community recreational space in one of America’s oldest Olmsted planned developments is now at hand. The Baltimore Country Club land is the remains of a 150-acre golf course, one of the first courses in the country and the first to be incorporated within a planned community in Roland Park. The community would like to transform this site into a public community recreational park. The park would be planned using the informal, natural style of Frederick Law Olmsted and his sons, who designed the surrounding landscape. The healthiest parks are those that welcome three generations. Initial plans for the new park include a dog park, playing fields, a playground, paths connecting to the existing footpaths and a central expanse for community gatherings, with no lights or additional parking other than what exist on Falls Road.

Top reasons to sell during holidays in Baltimore area

September 25th, 2014


Years ago when I sold my house in Homeland during the holidays, I found some up sides to this process during what most consider a difficult time to sell, and to buy for that matter.  First, the added effort to decorate for the holidays pays off big for more than one reason.  Not only did the festive décor add to my buyer tours, it allowed our family to enjoy the added effort I put into final beautiful, visual effect.  Also, I found the buyers who were out looking were more serious, and we negotiated a contract in a short time frame.  Therefore, when I saw the Keller Williams “Top reasons to sell during the holidays” list, I totally agreed with the following:

8.  By Selling Now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the spring, when

many more houses are on the market for less money. This will allow you to sell high and buy low!

7. Even though your house will be on the market, you still have the option to restrict showings during

the six or seven days around the Holidays.

6. January is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs. Since transferees cannot wait

until spring to buy, you need to be on the market during the Holidays to capture that market!

5.  Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons!

4.  Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays!

3.  Since the Supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there will be less demand for your

particular home! Less demand means less money for you!

2. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Holidays and less competition means

more money for you!


1. People who look for homes during the holidays are more serious buyers!
