1. Hampton has the lowest house values but Richmond is pretty close.
2. Maryland has a very high tax burden, so likely it has the highest taxes.
3. Maryland has a pretty bad foreclosure rate also.
4. Baltimore has the highest income, Richmond second, and Hampton third.
5. Baltimore has a very high poverty rate, Richmond second, Hampton third.
6. Baltimore has a very high yet declining crime rate (most crime in West baltimore and other parts), Richmond a high but declining rate (crime is more spread out), Hampton has an average crime rate (concentrated on the Southern part of the city)
7. Hampton lowest, Richmond second, and Baltimore third.
8. Richmond highest, Baltimore second, and Hampton third.
9. Baltimore highest, Richmond second, and Hampton third.

As a native of Hampton i'm picking it but i could be just as happy in Richmond.

Richmond doesnt seem to fit with the other 2 cities mention. Richmond is at best a medium sized city with the city Population being just under 200,000 people

You can nearly add Richmond and Hampton Roads metropolitans together and they would barley equal the Baltimore metro!!!

But if you add the cities together then it's a done deal 345,000 compared to a now rising again 640,000!!

But that's really not a fair competition because if you include the Baltimore/Washington Metro then it's over 8,000,000 and close to 9,000,000!!! LOL

Plus Baltimore isn't a midsized city it's considered a large city, and if Baltimore and Baltimore county were combined again then the population would be over the Richmond metro's population, but less than the Hampton Roads only because it includes so many largely populated cities (with nearly 4 cities that have over 200k)!

I believe that Richmond and Hampton can be compared a lot better!!!

Baltimore would be more liberal if it is a criterion but the cost of living goes to Richmond.
