The not-so-expensive neighborhoods

Lookylooing is all good fun, which is probably why so many people lookylooed at last week's lists of the



in the Baltimore metro area.

Sometimes, though, you just want to know where to find the comparatively inexpensive places. You know, with the homes you might actually be able to afford.


Here's a list for you. Today, city neighborhoods. Tomorrow, the world! (The part of the world that includes the Baltimore suburbs, anyway.)

Below you'll find the city neighborhoods where homes sold for less than $250,000 during the first half of the year. A neighborhood had to have at least five home sales to be included.

First column, neighborhood name -- obviously. Second, number of home sales in the first half of the year. Third, average price. (I'm sure there's a way to rename the headers in Swivel, but darned if I could figure it out.)

Before you scroll down, take a guess at the number of neighborhoods. And the average price in the cheapest one.

Ready? OK, go.

Were your guesses close?

And do any of the neighborhoods on the list surprise you?
