Many prospective home buyers in the D.C. area who find properties too far above their price range in the city turn to Prince George’s County. That suburban Maryland jurisdiction is known for its more affordably priced homes compared to other nearby counties. But home prices are rising quickly in Prince George’s, so that affordability may not last forever.

The median sales price in Prince George’s County was $390,000 in February, according to Bright MLS, an increase of 20 percent compared to the median sales price in February 2021 and 25 percent higher than February 2020. However, the regional median sales price in February 2022 was $526,000. It’s easier to find a home with more space and in good condition that fits a budget capped at $400,000 in Prince George’s County than in many other parts of the region.

For example, the townhouse-style condo at 10015 Greenspire Way #10 in Bowie is priced at $348,000. Monthly condo fees are $300 and annual property taxes are $4,392. A sale is pending on this property, according to Zillow.
