When Bob and Marian Matthis came to Baltimore to search for a home this year, they were trailed by a Home and Garden Television cable channel film crew. The newlyweds became the first family to have their home search in the Baltimore area filmed for House Hunters, the channel's top-rated show. The network was drawn to Baltimore because of its unique architecture and the number of older homes in the area, said Nate Hamlin, a show producer. Hamlin particularly liked the area's Colonial-style homes and the charm they conveyed on camera.

Thinking of adding a deck, but don't want the high maintenance? Think about new composite decking products from Trex Company. While composite decking -- with its man-made wood replacement material -- has been around awhile, it often doesn't resemble wood decking. New this year, Trex Company has launched Trex Accents, a line of wood-grain-looking decking. Made of waste wood fiber and recycled plastic grocery bags, Trex decking is weather-resistant, slip-resistant and insect-resistant, and will never rot, crack or need stains or sealants.

Burleigh Cottage, an historic Howard County house whose origins go back to the late 1700s, sold in October for $1.1 million. The house at 10250 Burleigh Cottage Lane in Ellicott City started out as a log cabin used as a hunting retreat. Additions were made to the cabin over the years, and the house is now 3,579 square feet. "The log cabin part of the house is still the original. It's got the original floors, the original fireplaces," said Concetta Corriere with Remax 100, who represented the seller.

House hunters searching for an in-town, historic mansion in Mount Vernon, the heart of Baltimore's cultural center, need look no further than 514 Cathedral Street. The address is home to a 9,000-square-foot town house lovingly restored over the last eight years by its owner, Drew Rieger. Dating to 1847, the six-level, elegant home was once the residence of a commander of the Civil War. "It's the only house in Mount Vernon that has been restored back to its original 1840s floor plan," Rieger said.

THE REAL ESTATE notice in the newspaper said the rowhouse was located in Canton and sold for $120,000, but the place turned out to be two doors away from Eastern Avenue and the heart of Patterson Park. A sense of deflation ensued; we felt sorry for Patterson Park. When did such a neighborhood, dear to any city dweller's heart, start calling itself Canton? It felt like the owner's ad had attempted to disguise his home's very own birthright. Patterson Park is not Canton, somebody said. The real estate agent just shrugged.

Home shopping in the late 1980s often meant contract wars -- too many buyers chasing after too few properties. But today a house hunt can trigger stress from too many choices."

Ben Nacev knows how hard it can be to buy a house. After two unsuccessful attempts this year, he finally came up a winner when the seller of a Govans house accepted his contract. "It's pretty crazy," said Nacev, who settled on the $114,000 property June 7. "But I would say, don't get too wrapped up in it. Realize when you go into it, you may have to go through two or three rounds." Nacev's experience is one that's become common at a time when high demand and historically low interest rates continue to fuel a fast-paced seller's market.

Before their marriage 14 years ago, Andre and Debbie Jones remember, they had a slight issue to overcome. They knew they would be moving in together, of course, but the question was where. Andre Jones was happy with his townhouse in Woodlawn. Debbie Jones was comfortable with her rented house in Ridgely's Delight. Something had to give. "I wouldn't live in the country, and he wouldn't move anywhere there were alleys with rats and where there were buses that shook the windows," she said.

Tracy Gosson was everywhere yesterday, electronic megaphone in hand as she called out departures for the vans hired to carry prospective homeowners on tours of Baltimore neighborhoods. "I don't care what the census says. People want to move [into] Baltimore," said Gosson, director of the Live Baltimore Marketing Center. "This is not three years ago. There are very positive attitudes about the city." Yesterday's "Buying Into Baltimore Fair" gave the nonprofit agency another chance to showcase the city's neighborhoods.

When Lisa and Randy Crawford were looking to buy a home -- an older, quality home -- they began their search in Frederick where they both worked. But prices for the kind of home they were looking for were well over $200,000, more than what they wanted to spend. They looked for three years, but finally turned their attention 25 miles east to Taneytown. "Taneytown has a little gold mine of homes," Lisa Crawford said. The couple finally bought an old Victorian on West Baltimore Street, the town's main street, for just under $130,000.
