Very good information for Maryland home buyers.

I hope you are having a most productive month as home buyers continue to take advantage of the very low mortgage interest rates.

That is good news. This is a great way for Baltimore Neighborhood Housing Services to move some properties and help buyers gain assistance. It looks like a win-win for both parties.

Leander this is a timely post, since buyers are out looking to buy, and why not,interest rate is low.  The NHS downpayment will be a big help.

Leander-That is quite a financial investment but the education is probably an even more important aspect of helping the home buyers stay in the homes long-term. Do you still have that Harley you bought a few years ago?
