The median price of existing homes sold in Maryland rose to $255,498 in August, up 6 percent from a year ago, according to the Maryland Association of Realtors. That was the seventh consecutive month of year-over-year price increases. The number of sales jumped almost 10 percent to the highest level in the month of August since before the Great Recession started in late 2007.
