Due to increased land and construction costs in the last twenty years, architectural styles in Maryland have shifted to more open and functional home designs with, on average, smaller total square footage. Most modern homes are built in the colonial style, typically with two stories and multiple bedrooms. The single-level ranch or rambler home has historically been a very popular design. Though there are very few new ranch homes in construction, many older models remain on the market.

Though one of the smallest states, Maryland is also one of the most densely populated. Its largest city by far is Baltimore with a population of over half a million residents. Columbia and Germantown are its next two largest cities. Baltimore has a historically rich cityscape; one in three buildings in the city are listed on the National Register. Columbia is a planned community and is located in the second wealthiest county in the United States. It has been listed multiple times as one of CNN Money's "Best Places to Live in America." Recreation is an important tenet of life in Columbia, which is supported by many publicly maintained swimming pools, skating rinks, various sports facilities and athletic clubs. Germantown, which is located approximately 30 miles away from Washington, D.C., has an active arts and tourism scene. Popular places to visit include the Waters House History Center and the BlackRock Center for the Arts.
