Live Near Your Work: Purchasing a New Construction Home

Note: On Sept. 10, for one day only, LNYW is increasing its home-buying grant to $36,000 to purchase a new or substantially renovated town home in Eager Park/EBDI. View the video to see what Johns Hopkins employees living in Eager Park say about their neighborhood.

On Thursday, Aug. 13, Katie Schroeder, LNYW program manager, will discuss the steps employees need to take to use a LNYW grant to help purchase a new or existing home in Baltimore City. Ryan Homes will explain what to expect when buying a new construction home, including the advantages of buying new construction vs. existing properties, a typical timeline for this type of purchase, and selecting options in addition to already included home amenities. And the real estate professionals involved in new construction purchases (developer, builder, lender, title company, and others) will be reviewed. Ryan Homes will also provide information about its exciting new development in Eager Park in East Baltimore.

Thursday, Aug. 18, East Baltimore, noon to 1 p.m.
