Maryland is the 3rd best state in the country for buying and flipping homes, according to 24/7 Wall St. and USA Today. So what makes Maryland a great place for investing in and flipping real estate? It has a lot to do with the state’s foreclosure rate. Maryland has ranked in the top 5 states with the highest foreclosure rate for many consecutive months now. Just two months ago in February there were 2,210 foreclosure starts in the state, and in March the state ranked as the second highest in the nation for foreclosure rates behind Florida. In March, 1 in every 527 units received a foreclosure filing in Maryland compared to 1 in every 1,121 nationally.

So what kind of earning potential is there in Maryland? According to 24/7 Wall St. the average gross profit for a flipped property in 2013 in Maryland was $98,122. Home flipping has significantly increased in popularity over the past few years as well, with 3,522 homes flipped in 2013 compared to about 1,000 in 2011. Maryland’s proximity to the highly desirable D.C. metro area also bodes well for flippers. “On average, flipped homes in the D.C. metro area were sold for $372,792 at a profit of more than $112,000 last year, more than in most other metro areas.”
