Lanham MD Homes For Sale
Located in Prince George's County in Maryland is the community of Lanham. Measuring 3.5 square miles in size and with around 10,157 residents, this comfortable suburban neighborhood offers solid real estate values and a convenient location. The town is intersected by the Capital Beltway and is also close to U.S. Route 1 and the Anacostia River. The town is often associated with neighboring Lanham Seabrook.
Lanham's early roots go back to tobacco farmers during the early 1700's. In the 1800's, Trueman and Mary Ellen Lanham bought a sizable portion of land. In 1873, Mary Ellen who was by then widowed, deeded a substantial portion of her property to the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad. The town subsequently became known as Lanham Station. Jumping ahead to the modern era, the grand Georgian manor that once belonged to Trueman and Mary, was leveled to make way for the Capital Beltway. Such is the price of progress.

While you'll find properties of all styles in Lanham, the most concerted period of residential expansion occurred between 1950 and 1970. Numerous neighborhoods and subdivisions sprung up during this period, as well as a rash of Split-level homes. You'll find a wide variety of split-level styles in Lanham including bi-level, tri-level, back-split, side-split and stacked split. It was a popular architectural type at the time and in fact, seems to be making something of a comeback. It probably has less to do with retro Brady Bunch charm than the fact that they represent some of the most competitively priced homes in today's Washington Metro marketplace.
Homes for sale in Lanham are mostly detached single-family units with a median value of around $290,000. In addition to the previously mentioned Split-levels, you'll find Colonial Revivals, Cape Cods, Ramblers, various bungalows and cottages and some newer custom homes. Despite the low average price, there's a significant range, from $100,000 all the way to around $700,000. The majority of the inventory however, falls into the lower six figure category. The tree-lined neighborhoods are pleasant, there's a strong sense of community and there's plenty of parks and recreation. While there isn't a local Metro station, there are plenty in neighboring communities such as College Park and Hyattsville.
