Hello everyone,

I'm looking to buy a condo in the state of Maryland. My two counties of interest are Montgomery and Prince Georges County because of the easy commute to my place of employment in Downtown DC.

As I am a single professional woman, can anyone provide some advice on which county has the safest, friendliest, and least impoverished cities?

Many thanks in advance.

Well it depends on what you want. I think P.G. is going to be a little cheaper. Largo has some new condo's. It's near Capital Blvd. Also in Suitland near the Branch avenue metro station there are two brand new condo complex.

Greenbelt, Laurel, Bowie, Hyattsville off of route 1 where the Arts district are good places to look for reasonably priced new and existing condos. I think existing tends to be a lot cheaper than brand new, but you get what you pay for. I'm not that familiar with new developments in Montgomery county. If you are looking that way they would probably offer you more of a city life. So just take a look at both areas, and please don't let anyone deter you from looking in P.G. there are some good deals and there also in good areas. Best wishes to you.

P.S. Also check out the National Harbour, I think they are starting to advertise for new condo's as well.

Jayman had a good suggestion with the EYA - Hyattsville Arts district located on Route 1 in Hyattsville. You may also want to look at a development called UTC - University Town Center also in what is considered to be Hyattsville.
