Another musician, that's just what Hampden needs. I can remember my neighbors band playing all night long. The trouble was we lived in rowhouses so the sound goes right through the wall. I even asked him what kind of moron rents a rowhome for band practice without having consideration for the neighbors. I had to contact their landlord to give them the boot. "Why not rent a detached home," I said. His response was I like the city.

You've never been there and you get your "facts" from a TV show, so you have no idea what your talking about.

You don't understand because you haven't been here.

This city has a very unique vibe and you can only appreciate it once you live here and get to see what the city has to offer. I just went to the B&O museum and rode the train to the Mount Clare Museum House. It was really cool and everyone was really nice.

Thank you for including that link. I never saw that thread before. Oh well, I guess we can't all live in the land of Mary Tyler Moore. (Thank God!)

YOU MUST BE ON DRUGS!!!!!!!!

I would not even think of buying a house in Baltimore City. Haven't you noticed? America's middleclass is collapsing. If you thinks social problems are bad now, wait till inflation really kicks in and social upheaval and crime will be off the chain!!!!!

The house you will buy for a 150,000.00 today will be worth leass than 100,000.00 tomorrow. Get used to the new American Middleclass; LOWER STANDARD OF LIVING!!!!!!!

THE SOLUTION IS TO RENT!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you can afford to buy and financially it is beneficial (mortgage is cheaper than renting) then it makes a lot of sense to buy. There is always a possibility that the house will be worth less but also the possibility that it will appreciate in value over time.

Houses in the county are usually more expensive then in the city. With the shrinking of the middle class and lower standard of housing then the value of those houses have more of a likely hood of dropping more than the city. Plus with the cost of gas high people can't afford to drive hours to get to work and will look to move closer to their employment (city) so that will cause a shift from rural/suburban living to city.

Do you want to rent so you can pay someone else's mortgage, I DON"T THINK SO!

Default Doomsday scenarios

If you want to predict the collapse of the middle-class and the consequences, I bet they will be felt more acutely in Harford County than in Baltimore City. What will happen to all those developments when gas prices shoot up again and people, already struggling with making mortgage payments, are squeezed even more. By comparison, people who have at least the option of getting from point A to B by mass transit, will have an easier time.

Exactly. Great post. Not to mention the costs to heat those homes. Look at foreclosures and the pain is shared throughout this great land. Suburbia is far from immune.
