Housing events and foreclosure help
Two events for would-be homebuyers and one announcement for struggling homeowners:
o Live Baltimore is holding its Buying into Baltimore fair for the western half of the city on Saturday, May 14, which includes the usual opportunity to qualify for $4,000 in city-funded money to put toward closing costs or a downpayment.
o Comprehensive Housing Assistance Inc. is putting on its own open house tour of Northwestern city neighborhoods on Monday, May 16, also with $4,000 settlement-help opportunities.
o Bank of America announced Thursday that it would open a Baltimore-area center that its borrowers can visit if they're having trouble with mortgage payments, one of 28 "customer assistance" locations it plans to open in the next three months. The closest one now is in Arlington, Va. The potential appeal of showing up in person? A common complaint by borrowers seeking loan modifications from their servicers is that the documentation they fax or mail is repeatedly lost.
