November 28, 2016 - Event Recap
On Saturday, November 19, we hosted our last City Living Starts Here event of 2016 in the Greektown neighborhood of Southeast Baltimore. What a way to end the year! City Living Starts Here: Greektown boasted 131 attendees, the highest attendance of any City Living Starts Here event all year.
Potential homebuyers packed the well-appointed Greektown Event & Conference Center (or “Platia,” Greek for “town square”) to learn the ins and outs of buying a home from industry experts and community organizations. From there, event-goers hit the streets for a walking tour of the ever-evolving neighborhood. They strolled through charming rowhome-lined streets and avenues, spattered with restaurants and shops, while basking in the unseasonably warm weather (a whopping 69 degrees)!
If you attended the event in Greektown, there is still time to apply for the related incentive! Applications, to be entered into a lottery for the 10, $5,000 homebuying incentives, are being accepted at Live Baltimore’s offices (343 N Charles Street, Baltimore MD 21201) until Tuesday, December 6 at 5:00 p.m. The incentives may be used toward downpayment and closing costs on a home anywhere in Baltimore City.
This year’s City Living Starts Here events spanned Baltimore, with Greektown in the Southeast, Pigtown in the Southwest, Howard Park in the Northwest, and Belair-Edison in the Northeast. We’re excited to showcase even more of Baltimore in the coming year! To learn more about Greektown, visit the Live Baltimore neighborhood page here and browse our virtual tour library on Facebook.
If you are interested in attending an incentive event, we hold them 6 times a year! The next is City Living Starts Here in January. We hope to see you there!
