"Highest percentage" means the answer is probably a suburb of a booming metro, not a large city itself.

Yes cities indeed do have cookie cutter homes but nothing nearly as dull, cheap and unattractive as what you see in the suburbs. I've been there, seen the hideous things and sold them many times over. And please don't try to compare anything 100+ years ago to any of the dull, lifeless cookie cutter things of today.

I will I agree that alot of houses in the city do look similar,but they are in no way,shape,or form the same as the new cookie cutter homes.The older houses were built better,and just give off a better vibe.Alot of the cookie cuuter homes have the same types of rooms inside,and I mean the exact same.Older homes may look different on the outside,but one your on the inside,you can't compare two older homes.

I have been a visiting nurse and have actually been inside many of these older homes. The "cookie cutter" older homes have identical floor plans. As for being built better, see my previous post.

[sarcasm]Don't you know that it's not cool to talk about city homes like that, even if it's true? Tackiness only applies to suburbs![/sarcasm]

The row homes in Baltimore are probably some of the ugliest housing developments in the U.S. It's not cool to point that out though.

Yes, I am very much aware of that. It is the same in Denver. "What do you mean, these houses have outdated wiring, plumbing, etc, etc? No they don't! You just don't run too many things at one time! Don't get a drink of water while someone else is taking a shower!"

These homes all have pretty much the same exterior and interior (layout) and it looks as if they were also mass produced. But wait, they're city row houses so there's no way they can be cookie-cutter!

Really, I have no problem with these homes. I think they're very charming and suit the city well. However, I can't help but notice that they all look alike and most likely share the same interior floor plan.
