Maryland Information

Maryland Overview:
A large part of the state's appeal is related to the sea, with fishing boats and 'watermen' who pull fresh seafood from Chesapeake Bay, historic waterfront towns and vibrant harbors, pleasure sailing, bustling ports and important shipyards, beaches and specialty crab cakes. The inland regions have their own kind of charm with lakes, waterfalls, mountains and valleys, rivers and savage rapids that are a delight for kayakers and white-water rafters. Western Maryland has endless opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast as well as beautiful scenery, from hiking and fishing, to skiing in winter.

Maryland Real Estate:
Maryland coastal communities, equestrian communities, neo-traditional, retirement communities, gated communities, private golf course communities, active-adult communities and master planned communities abound in Marland. Demand for housing has resulted in a limited supply. Sellers are receiving multiple offers at asking price. The market is being fueled by activity from first time, move-up and repeat buyers, single-family homes, and condos/townhomes.
