Thinking about buying a house here in Baltimore? Maybe. Interested in $4,000 to help you do it? We bet you are. Live Baltimore—the folks who do basically everything possible to encourage us to live, work, and play right here in the city—are offering one of their twice-yearly Homebuying Incentive Events in a couple of weeks. And this isn’t some kind of sit-down-in-a-stuffy-room-and-listen-to-droning-talks event. No, no. This is Baltimore, hon. Things here are fun, lively, and done our own way. At the event, potential homebuyers get to take a narrated bus tour of homes and neighborhoods (you can also drive your own car, if you’d prefer), you can also sit in on homebuying workshops, speak with trusted real estate professionals and community organizations, and get local perspectives from neighborhood associations and neighbors to help with your big decision. And mid-day you can take an outdoor lunch break at one of the great local food trucks that will be on-site.
The event takes place on Saturday, June 15th (like how we’re giving you plenty of notice to decide to buy a home?). Advance registration is encouraged—the event is $10 per person in advance, or $15 the day of. Not bad for something that will turn around and give you $4,000 toward the purchase of your home. That’s like paying the cost of a couple dish towels for a redone kitchen floor and countertops! Cha-ching! And we should really drive home that the incentive is good for a home bought anywhere in Baltimore City. Yup. Anywhere. These events only happen twice a year (next time is in the fall), so we encourage you to jump on it while the jumping’s good. After all, it is real estate season. Might as well get the most out of it that you can.
Live Baltimore’s Homebuying Incentive Event takes place on Saturday, June 15that Digital Harbor High School, 1100 Covington Street in Baltimore. For more information, or to register, visit www.livebaltimore.com.
