Cheapest, most expensive communities in Md.
Want to live in one of the most expensive housing markets in the country? You won't have to move far. (You might even be there now.)
Coldwell Banker Real Estate's new ranking of just over 2,300 markets in the country by average price puts Annapolis at No. 2,240, meaning it's among the 100 priciest areas -- No. 1 is cheapest. Annapolis is the priciest sizable market in Maryland by Coldwell Banker's measurement, outpacing the Washington suburbs of Rockville and Silver Spring.
The list doesn't include everything you might consider its own market, such as tony Potomac and Bethesda. And the calculation for Baltimore appears to include at least part of Baltimore County, upping its average price to $265,000 rather than the $135,000 measured by the local multiple-listing service.
But hey, everyone loves a ranking. Go on, have a look:
|Market||Average price||Nationwide rank|
What communities aren't on the list that are worthy of being considered their own housing markets, rather than satellites of larger neighborhoods?
And where do you think buyers get the most bang for their buck?
