No. 1: Downtown, Baltimore City (21202)

With a boom in development in Harbor East and historic neighborhoods like Mount Vernon and Little Italy, this Zip Code has a lot of diversity, says Carol Snyder, branch vice president for Coldwell Banker. "Walkability is a very popular selling point in today's real estate market, and these areas have that," she said. Synder said walkable neighborhoods are particularly in demand in Baltimore because transit options aren't as robust as other cities like New York or D.C. The median sales price for homes in this area was $201,500.Lloyd Fox / Baltimore Sun
