Maryland is sometimes called “Little America” because of its rich diversity in it geographical features. From the mountains in the western part of the state, to the flat land of the eastern shore, to the beaches of the Atlantic Coast, Maryland offers a far reaching variety of land types. The central part of the state is divided by the beautiful Chesapeake Bay and its many tributaries which are world famous for seafood, sailing, fishing, and hunting.
Approximately one third of Maryland’s six million acres is farmland. From horse farms to the poultry industry, to the lush croplands, Maryland farm provide a diverse cross-section of land uses.
Maryland is centrally located on the east cost which provides for easy access to a number of major U.S. Cities. Washington D.C. and Baltimore make up Maryland’s two biggest metropolitan areas, but Maryland is also located within a short drive of Philadelphia, New York, and Richmond, Virginia.
A great many federal government agencies are located in Maryland, D.C. and the surrounding areas. It is because of these many government job opportunities that Maryland is considered to be more insulated from economic volatility than other locales. For this reason, Maryland has historically been among the leading U.S. states for property value increases. All of these factors make Maryland a prime location for real estate investment.
