We recently sold our home in Laytonsville and are looking to downsize to a smaller single family home around 2500 sq ft. We are considering the Silver Spring area and was wondering which areas we should avoid.

thanks in advance,

Post zip code rundown of Sil. Spring

20901 - Borders Takoma Park and Hyattsville. Mostly older homes. Not the best from a safety standpoint but lots of great ethnic restaurants and convenient.

20902 - Wheaton. Some older neighborhoods are still very safe and well kept but the homes may not be in the best shape. Also very ethnically diverse.

20903 - Hillandale. The worst section of Silver Spring in my opinion. Not much here.

20904 - Mixed bag - you have Fairland and White Oak with a lot of townhomes and apartments, but some of the Colesville areas are decent.

20905 - Here's where you should be. Norbeck Rd area. Lots of nice houses but most are pretty large (ie over 2500 sq ft).

20906 - Glenmont. You get some nice neighborhoods close to Rockville's Manor Country Club but anything off Bel Pre Rd is trouble. Lots of older homes here as well.

20910 - Downtown. Single family homes will be pricey. Some very attractive TH's in the 2500-3000 sq ft range. Downtown Sil. Spring may be the 3rd best place to eat out in Maryland besides Baltimore and Annapolis. Very convenent too. My 2nd choice.
