Why on earth are Temple Hills, MD homes so inexpensive here? It’s all about the real estate crisis that affected Prince George’s County more than any other part of the region, starting around 2008. The market has been rebounding since about 2012 but prices are still well off their high mark. As for new custom construction, developers and contractors in this area are hungry for new business.
Temple Hills condos for sale account for a fairly small slice of all listings, but do exist—often represented by older townhouses and converted World War II-era garden apartment complexes. Again, prices are very low.

How about nice parks, public indoor and outdoor swimming pools, the Temple Hills Rec Center with tennis, basketball and arts programs, and the private Temple Hills Swim Club. There’s also the recently renovated and upgraded Marlow 6 Cinemas. As for commuter options, the Capital Beltway runs right through town, and there’s also the Southern Avenue Metro.
With all this, it’s not at all surprising that homes and condos for sale have been jumping in value recently. Yes, Temple Hills is a mecca for bargain hunters. It won’t stay that way indefinitely, however—the inventory is already shrinking.
