Are you struggling to sell you house in the Baltimore market? There are likely a number of factors that are simply out of your hands. You could have the best house on the block. You could have renovated your property top to bottom. Everything could be perfect and your house could still sit on the market with no buyers.
There are always things in the Baltimore real estate market that affect your ability to sell. If any of the following factors apply to your situation then you may want to reconsidering selling your house on the market.
1. Surrounding Homes
Unfortunately you can’t control your neighbors. Not everyone keeps up their property the same way you do. We’ve seen it all when we buy houses in Baltimore. Scrappers that keep their backyard looking like a junkyard, families that keep toys out in the yard, and homeowner who keep their Christmas decorations up year around.
If buyer are put off by your neighbors then it is highly unlikely that they’ll buy your house, no matter how nice it is. If you’re trying to sell your house in Baltimore fast then homeowners may not be an appropriate buyer. You should consider a professional homebuying company like Dependable Homebuyers. We’ll buy your house no matter how difficult your neighbors may be.
2. School Districting
The oldest saying in real estate is, “Location, location, location.” In Baltimore, your school district makes all the difference. These school lines change all the time. You could have bought the house when it was going to a top school, just to be it be redistricted to less desirable schools over the years. There is nothing you can do to control this and could result in your Baltimore property being worth thousands of dollars less because of it.
While you can’t choose your schools, you can choose how you sell your property. Instead of listing with a real estate agent, you should consider selling your property directly to us! We are not concerned with school districting and can save you thousands of dollars in real estate commissions. Give us a call at (410) 779-4622.
Let’s face it. Baltimore, just like any large city, has its fair share of crime. Crime is unpredictable and concentrates in different neighborhoods. Over the years these concentrations change. A picture perfect neighborhood 10 years ago could be the victim of higher crime today.
When homeowners consider buying a house one of the first things they do is look up the crime report for the neighborhood. If they see any reported crimes in recent months it’s almost a guarantee that they’ll be passing on your property. Nobody wants to move into a neighborhood where they might feel unsafe.
As an alternative you could sell your home to Dependable Homebuyers. We buy houses in all of Baltimore’s neighborhoods. Just because crimes have been reported in a neighborhood doesn’t mean that it’s a bad neighborhood. We understand that!

No neighborhood is off limits for us.
4. New Construction
Was a strip mall built behind your house? Did the city redirect traffic through your neighborhood? Did you go from owning a house in a quiet neighborhood to have it turn into a noisy street? Home buyers in Baltimore hate noise. When they look at your property they always evaluate how busy and noisy the area is. Everyone wants a peaceful, quiet, clean place to live. If your home isn’t able to offer this then they will likely move on to a different neighborhood.
It’s unfortunate. When neighborhoods change there is very little a homeowner can do to control how busy and noise their street will become. If you’re struggling to sell your house to new homeowners, then you should consider selling it to Dependable Homebuyers. Busy streets do not scare us and we’re happy to make you a fair offer right away. You can start by filling out this short form.
Available jobs is one of the strongest driving factors in the value and desirability of a neighborhood. Baltimore has struggled recently keeping the well paying jobs that allow people to purchase homes. If your neighborhood loss a nearby factory, corporate headquarters, or place of employment then it is likely that people trying to sell their homes have struggled as well.
Most people buy their homes based on the proximity to their jobs. Fewer jobs means less buyers. Luckily Dependable Homebuyers isn’t looking to buy your home based on the local job market. We pay cash and can close in a matter of days if necessary. You won’t have to make any repairs as we buy houses “as-is.” What do you have to lose!
