I don't think that northern Baltimore County has the diversity that the OP is looking for.

The only area that I can think of is in Greenbelt within the boundary for Greenbelt Elementary. There is a cooperative called Greenbelt Homes Incorporated that has town homes from the 1940s and is a nice little neighborhood. Houses are typically small but in your price range of $150-200K. The local high school is also pretty good. Middle school is a challenge.

Are you kidding? This is not remotely true.

As usual, people on here do not know this area.

According to the data provided on this very website, I would agree that Cockeysville and Towson are fairly diverse. But the other places you listed? Not so much. Looking at the link you provided, of the towns you'd listed, the third one is Lutherville -- 89% white. (Actually, that figure is for Lutherville-Timonium combined.) Hereford and Monkton didn't even make the list.

So, I'll say that I stand partially corrected. It does appear that Cockeysville and Towson probably have the diversity that the OP is looking for. And they're probably more affordable than Howard County as well.

Agreed. I think Columbia would be the OP's best bet. There are also townhouses in that price range where the diversity of the neighborhood compensates for smaller lots.

Only if they have to be closer to DC.

To funny, competitor site yet idiots can get on here and spread lies, and nonsense all day.

It was easier to look it up on the competitor site.

I'm still waiting to hear how this young family/couple, or any similarly employed poster,
can actually afford to purchase and manage ownership at that sort of price level.
And by extension... who is blowing smoke up their skirts telling them to dive in.

There are a number of houses here on this (the west) side of Reisterstown Road in Pikesville that are under $250k. Quite diverse, as well, and the schools (Sudbrook Middle Magnet, Pikesville High, etc.) are pretty good as far as I know from sending a kid to them. Easy access to the metro for getting downtown or to the beltway for getting to DC. Places liek these seem to be fairly common here:

I'd recommend Bowie, MD.

Many middle to upper-middle class African-American families choose that location and other parts of PG county. The prices are a bit higher that the range mentioned, most there are in the $400's, but you can get a decent home in a good community, possibly needing some updates, in the $350's.
