Ellicott City 11631 Whitetail Lane
Original price: $1.1 million
Current listing: $975,000
This home, just five minutes from downtown Ellicott City and 30 minutes from Washington, has been on sale about four months and has already been marked down $125,000. The two-story home's combination of stone and vinyl siding gives it a colonial style. The home was built 10 years ago and has four bedrooms and 5½ baths. Though there is a small wooded area out back, much of the new subdivision lacks trees and development.
