There are many places in the Baltimore area that you may enjoy living in, depending on how long of a commute, how many bedrooms, baths, and more that you are looking for.
I would love to speak with you to find out more of your needs, so areas can be narrowed down.
Please let me know if I can help you further.

I moved to Baltimore County three years ago. As an experienced educator, I am being paid less and the cost of living is outrageous. I cannot afford a decent home in a decent area. I am still living with relatives because I cannot find a decent, detached home for me and my two children. The detached homes here are so expensive. It is impossible to find a nice 4-bedroom home with an attached garage, and a medium size backyard for under $290,000, in a nice area. The detached homes here in Baltimore County are twice as expensive. A house like that would cost between $325,000 to $375,000, if not more. I have been looking online, everyday, faithfully, for hours, for three years, but to no avail. Maybe you might have better luck, if you want a townhome, or home without an attached garage, or a yard.
Best wishes, and Welcome to Baltimore!
Moving into a new City can be very exciting. As far as looking for a neighborhood to live in, there are a lot of on-line resources that can connect you to the planning departments of local jurisdications which can be a starting point. However, depending on your circumstances, you might want to consider renting for a while to let yourself acclimate to the new environment and get you familiar with neighborhoods close to where you will be working.
If that is not an option for you, people where you will be working might be able to give you some insights about neighborhoods convenient to work. Some employers also provide incentives to their employees to purchase properties. In most cases, the incentives are targeted to first time homebuyers. But in some cases, they may also be available to other people.
For information on neighborhoods in Baltimore City, in addition to City government, there is a web site http://www.livebaltimore.com that provides a lot of info on neighborhoods, news and developments for the City. Not sure where your job will be, but if you have not relocated yet, you can start with these on-line resources to get started. A good map of the metro area also will help.
Finally, as a point of information, Baltimore City and Baltimore County are different jurisdictions. In most places, Cities are located in Counties. Here the City is considered a County.
Congrats on the job!

I don't know how you feel about it, but I have always suggested my out of clients to rent something for short or long term whatever they like, then talk to coworkers, drive by different part of Baltimore, check out schools, then decide an area where you might like to live. When you don't know anything about city you are moving into, you might feel pressured in making a decision and you are not educated enough about city.
