Where the under-$250k homes are in the Baltimore area
For everyone in the second group -- plus the generally curious -- I've put together a list of places where the average sale price was less than $250,000 last year.
The suburban areas are by ZIP code, or more precisely by the parts of ZIP codes in the suburbs. In ZIPs that overlap into the city, only the suburban sales are included. That's because people identify more with neighborhoods in the city than with ZIP codes, so I did a separate list organizing city sales neighborhood by neighborhood. That follows the suburban stats.
The suburban list is pretty short, but the city list includes many neighborhoods. Read on for the lowdown.
Home sales data is from Metropolitan Regional Information Systems, crunched by me for this story. Wondering where those ZIP codes are? Go to the Maryland State Data Center's ZIP code maps. To track down city neighborhoods, try Live Baltimore's neighborhoods page.
If you'd like to know about other price ranges, go to this post, which has links to a searchable database for ZIP codes and an Excel file for city neighborhoods.
