I can tell you that the closer to Washington, DC you are, the higher the prices are. We live north of Baltimore in Bel Air. The market here is a good buyer's market and buyers are getting some great deals right now. My husband commutes about 20 minutes daily to his office in the White Marsh area. I work in both Harford & Baltimore Counties, so it would be my pleasure to assist you with finding your way! Maryland is a busy state and there is a lot going on. There are a lot of opportunities for IT professionals here. BRAC (Base realignment) is taking place in this state. Two of our major bases are adding a ton of jobs.
