WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- While home prices continue to fall across most of the US, prices in the DC area have increased for the 18th straight month.
Last month, area home prices were up one and a half percent from one year ago.
But the increase was not universal. Prince George's and Howard counties in Maryland and Spotsylvania and Stafford counties in Virginia continue to lag behind.
The median price for a home in our area now stands at $294,800.
So just what can you get for that amount?
You can get a condo, you can get a townhome, you can even get a single family detached home, but you will likely have to settle for a whole lot less than you would in parts of the country that are still struggling.
Darren Bumbaugh was checking out a Rockville Cape Cod listed at $250,000. But after just a few minutes looking, he cleared out, unhappy with what he'd found.
"Pretty small for a family with children."
