This chart and map track recent movements in single-family home sales in Baltimore and Baltimore County by ZIP code. The chart lists sales volume and median price for May, the most recent month available, and for the first five months of 1992, and compares those figures to 1991 statistics. The map reflects percentage changes between the median price during January-May 1992 and the same period last year.
In future weeks, charts and maps will appear for Harford County, Howard and Carroll counties, and Anne Arundel County. The next metrowide roundup of sales activity will appear at the end of the third quarter.
These figures show general residential real estate price trends, and should not be construed to show the relative increase or decrease in value of any particular property. At any given time, there may be more sales activity in certain market niches -- starter homes, for example -- and this may distort the median price.
