RPS Solutions LLC, an NCST community buyer, is focused on providing opportunities for first-time buyers in the Baltimore area. The new owners of this fully renovated Baltimore City townhome, who earn less than 80 percent of area median income, were ecstatic to purchase their first home. “RPS Solutions took all of the questions out of home buying, and made it much easier to plan for this new opportunity.” The family mentioned that RPS Solutions made the transition to homeownership much easier than they expected.
Renovations include refinished hardwood floors throughout, and adding crown molding and recessed lighting. The home now also features a new modern kitchen, complete with a new appliance package, cabinetry, and ceramic flooring, renovated bathrooms, and a fully-finished, water-proofed basement, complete with a powder room, an enclosed laundry room and utilities, plus a walk-up to the backyard. The more than $60,000 in renovations also included repairing the front porch and steps, freshening the exterior paint, repairing walls and applying fresh paint throughout, replacing exterior and interior doors, replacing the hot water heater, rewiring the home to bring it up to code, and installing new light fixtures and hard-wired smoke detectors.
This home is located in the Glen Oaks community of Baltimore City, which mostly contains single-family homes with spacious yards. It’s near the city center and is well-served by public transportation, which connects the community to downtown, making this a great neighborhood choice for young couples and families who want a more suburban feel, but also want convenient access to workplaces. It’s also very near to Belvedere Square, a nearby shopping area that hosts public concerts and events, and offers a good variety of stores, services, and restaurants.
