Thinking about buying a home in Baltimore City? Live Baltimore is hosting a Winter 2024 Trolley Tour, a free event open to all buyers at all stages of the home-buying process. It will take place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 3, at Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, 1400 W. Cold Spring Lane.

If you're interested in the home-buying process, the Trolley Tour is your chance to explore neighborhoods, sit in on expert-led workshops, and connect with counseling agencies, lenders, real estate agents, insurance companies, home inspectors, neighborhood associations, and community organizations.

Your attendance at the Trolley Tour qualifies you to apply for the $5,000 Buying Into Baltimore down payment and closing costs assistance incentive. Twenty homebuyers from a pool of eligible applications will be selected to receive the funds. Additional information and details can be found here.

Live Baltimore offers incentives that may be used in conjunction with the Live Near Your Work grant program through Johns Hopkins.
