"Baltimore City has some of the region's fastest-appreciating enclaves. It also has the slowest. And the gap between flourishing and decaying areas is widening. But at the same time, far more neighborhoods are improving than once did. Since 2002, according to MRIS, the average price of a home in Baltimore has risen faster than in its suburbs - at a time when the number of city home sales jumped by a fifth."
