New Yorkers Can Get Second Home for Less in Baltimore with Jeremy Batoff
Maryland will fit the bill for New Yorkers seeking to swap the city for a quieter and not-so-distant Maryland’s Greater Baltimore area. Jeremy Batoff has a lot to offer.
One of the profound changes the pandemic has inflicted on our lives is that many city dwellers, distraught by the need to work at home and desperate for more space, started moving to places outside of a typical daily commute. That sudden freedom to make lifestyle choices may be one of the very few silver linings in the devastating pandemic. The appeal of a non-full-time urban life has never been stronger than in the last 18 months.
One of such locations that would be a perfect fit for New Yorkers is Maryland and the Greater Baltimore area. Baltimore is home to seventeen colleges and universities, some among the nation’s best, so it’s no wonder millennials are coming to Baltimore in droves. There are plenty of jobs in the area with major employers in health care, biotech, manufacturing, fintech, and sports. Several Fortune 500 companies are headquartered here, Black & Decker, Constellation Energy, T. Rowe Rice, among them.
Only 190 miles from NYC, Baltimore is ranked 19th out of fifty outbound destinations for New Yorkers in 2021. All this makes Baltimore and the greater Baltimore area an excellent destination for those willing to part with NYC’s urban landscape in the quest for a quieter haven and better cost of living.
Jeremy Batoff, a Baltimore native and an accomplished realtor, is a founding partner in Batoff Group at Compass with an exclusive network not only in his native area but also among the New Yorkers who have purchased properties in Baltimore suburbs as “country retreats” and weekend homes.
In many cases, those new homes ended up serving as primary residences at the time of the pandemic’s work-at-home mode. With an inventory of Baltimore’s top-notch suburban and estate properties that would suit the most demanding taste, Batoff stands out from the ranks of peers as a genuinely many-sided specialist capable of working efficiently on both the supply and demand ends.
Also, at a time when the immense — and growing — role social media plays in the field of real estate, Batoff is able to utilize this marketing tool for the benefit of his clients, being the most followed realtor across social media in the Baltimore metro area.
