Buying a home in Frederick is no different than any other area. Even if you could get meaningful stats on median household income for the area, I don't think this stat would be helpful. You should first sit down with a local, reputable mortgage broker and determine exactly what you can afford. After that, a Realtor that specializes in Frederick can help narrow down areas and neighborhoods that are a good match for your needs. There's a lot of available homes in Frederick, so take your time and get a great deal on a home that meets your needs.
