Washington D.C. and the surrounding areas of Maryland and Virginia offer premier career opportunities that attract successful professionals from across the region and around the world. In fact, U.S. News and World Report ranked Washington D.C. fourth on the list of Best Places to Live in 2017 when considering the top 100 metro areas. With climbing real estate prices and fast-paced living, however, the city isn’t always the first choice for many families.
If you’re searching for a close-knit, family-first community close enough to work but far enough away from the hectic lifestyle, Severna Park, Maryland may be your perfect solution. Located a few miles outside of Annapolis, MD and in between Baltimore and Washington D.C., Severna Park boasts a family friendly atmosphere that is close to the city.
The small community of Severna Park sits between the Severn River and the Magothy River so the area has plenty of beautiful waterfront property with relatively mild temperatures year round. Real estate prices have continued to rise in value which is good news for both buyers and sellers. A home in Severna Park will hold its value – according to Melissa Cheetham, Realtor® with Remax First Choice.
