Laurel, MD Homes For Sale
Those browsing homes for sale in Laurel, Maryland, may find themselves overwhelmed by the number of active listings—there are literally hundreds of them! That’s probably because the community is rather large. First, there’s Laurel itself and then there’s North, South and West Laurel. The aggregate population is about 60,000 residents, with real estate properties ranging from around $100,000 to well over a million.
The community dates back to 1658, when 19-year-old Richard Snowden arrived on a boat from England and founded the Patuxent Iron Works (perched along the Patuxent River, naturally). Snowden and his progeny were a busy lot—also growing tobacco and building cotton and grain mills. For many years, this early industrial village was known as Laurel Factory, for obvious reasons. The town was officially incorporated in 1870 and has never stopped growing. To learn about Laurel, MD homes for sale, check out the MLS listings below.
