Ready to buy a home? Just exploring the city? Live Baltimore’s twice-yearly Buying Into Baltimore event returns on September 10 with expert insights for anyone at any stage in the homebuying process. Attendees will meet representatives from neighborhood associations, consult with lenders and real estate experts, take a guided “trolley tour” of Baltimore neighborhoods, AND become eligible for $5,000 in down payment and closing cost assistance from Baltimore City Housing.
There will be 12 workshops related to buying and owning a home in the city, including “Homebuying Myths, Facts, Do’s and Don’ts,” “Baltimore City Incentive Programs,” and “Preparing your Credit for Homeownership.” With the help of the experts at Buying Into Baltimore, homebuyers will learn how to make the most of homebuying incentive programs such as the Maryland Mortgage Program, Healthy Neighborhoods, and historic tax credits.
The event starts at the Radisson, but will quickly expand throughout Baltimore neighborhoods like Medfield, Woodberry, Ashburton, Callaway Garrison, and Mount Washington. Visitors will get a feel for these charming neighborhoods while a Live Baltimore expert narrates along the 90-minute tour. Admission to Buying into Baltimore is $10 online at LiveBaltimore.com and $15 at the door.
