I live in Bel Air and it is starting to become a little over crowded IMO. Do not get me wrong, I really like it here and I want to buy a house around here, just maybe a little more on the outskirts of Bel Air instead of where I am now. If you do consider Bel Air as a prime spot I would be happy to give my opinion on specific areas I would think that would be a good place to buy a house. I would recommend Abingdon, but you have to be careful with this. I would stay away from the RT 40 side of it. Gets a little rough along that area. Havre De Grace is a good choice too. But If you choose there, be careful as well my cousin is a cop there and some parts are kinda shady. Your relator can not tell you of the rough places in any of the places you're considering moving, so ask people in the specific areas where to stay away from. Maybe go grab lunch or dinner somewhere and ask a server or other patron while your waiting.
