Quality Housing Options 
Condominiums also cost less than townhouses or single-family homes. “The ones on the water were clearly in much greater demand,” said Weissgerber. “They had a nice year.”
“If something is properly priced, it will sell in three to six months,” Ferguson said, adding that the normal time
on the market is closer to six to nine months.
The only sluggish parts of the market are new construction and land sales, except in the mountain communities near Wisp Ski Resort. In some of those communities, you can ski directly from your front door. Not many builders
are putting up homes on speculation, but that could change if inventories of existing homes stay small.
The housing market in Garrett County does seem to have a bright future. Despite the low inventory, it is not at a saturation point. With its abundant parks and recreation areas, its popularity as a year-round get-away and its proximity to major cities, the county looks to grow as a second- home market.
My Deep Creek Experience
MY PARENTS MOVED THEIR FAMILY OF THREE YOUNG CHILDREN TO DEEP CREEK LAKE after falling in love with the
area while vacationing here. Growing
up in Garrett County provided me with
a childhood full of close friends, lasting memories, and a top-notch education that prepared me for higher education and ultimately my career. I am fortunate enough to have a career that allows me to utilize the degrees I have earned and to interact with the children and families of Garrett County as an employee of our public school system. I feel very blessed to live and work in Garrett County. The people of Garrett County are what make it such a close-knit and fun place to live. I socialize with a group of young professionals who keep me involved in the community. I am thankful I decided to stay in Garrett County; I can’t imagine living or working anywhere else!
