OVERVIEW

The Baltimore Metro Area housing market continued to show signs of improvement in March, with a second consecutive month of year-over-year gains in median sale price and the level of new foreclosures listed less than half the level of one year ago. Townhome properties saw the largest year-over-year increase in pricing, while detached properties and condo/co-ops experienced more modest increases in median sale price. The $210,000 median sale price for the first quarter was 2.4% higher than Q1 2011. There is solid balance between supply and demand to end the month, with 6.6 months supply of inventory.
