A couple of overall reasons. It is a little further out, consequently the land is less valuable. It is in a school system that is not as highly rated as the nearby counties. It is a mixture of various types of property, older, smaller, homes designed for short term rental etc, so it is a more diversed grouping of real estate. These are all factors accounting for it's relative value compared to other alternatives you are considering.
It all depends on what factors are most important to you in your search, of course your budget, what type of locational commuting requirements you may have, if you have school age children, the school system etc.
