Frederick County, MD 3/8/11

The Median Sold Price for Frederick County, as a whole, for last month was $249,743. This number dropped from $258,476 in 2010.  This -3.38% Sold Price change has many wondering what will happen this spring.  Have prices finally fallen to the bottom?  Is the Frederick Real Estate Market ever going to stabilize? These are questions we all would like to have answers to.

Looking at the Average for Frederick County does not accurately show the Good News – that I am happy to report in many areas.  New Market (zip code 21744) has an Average Sold Price of $287,682, Middletown (21769) Average Sold Price of $312,000, Dickerson (20842) $855,000 and Jefferson (21755) $870,000 have a lot to be proud of.   All of these numbers are well above the average for the county.  I see a very productive spring and summer ahead for 2011!

Downtown Frederick, named a Great American Main Street by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, has a lot of historic charm,  and is home to Carroll Creek Park.  Shop for gifts, antiques and more or dine at the city’s share of more than 200 eateries countywide.   Sports enthusiasts can catch a Frederick Keys game at a home stadium that’s the envy of other minor league baseball teams.

If you enjoy the open spaces Frederick County has several award-winning wineries or take in the natural beauty of a 78-foot waterfall at Cunningham Falls. Hike the C&O Canal towpath.
