This chart and map track recent movements in single-family home sales in Howard and Carroll counties by ZIP code. The chart lists sales volume and median price for January 1991, the most recent month available, and for all of 1990, and compares those figures to 1990 statistics.
Year-to-date median figures were not used because they would have reflected only one month of data. Instead the chart includes sales and price information for 1990 and comparisons to 1989, which offer a more complete indication of sales trends. In future weeks, charts and maps will appear for Harford County (April 28); Baltimore City and Baltimore County (May 5); and Anne Arundel County (May 12). The next metro-wide roundup of sales activity will appear in late June. The information is provided by Rufus S. Lusk & Son Inc.
