A homebuyer fair highlighting neighborhoods on Baltimore's west side will take place Saturday, giving prospective homebuyers a chance to tour neighborhoods, view for-sale homes and browse listings of available houses.
The first 50 participants who close on a house within 90 days of the fair will be eligible to receive a $3,000 city grant to put toward closing costs.
The fair, sponsored by the Live Baltimore Marketing Center, will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Baltimore Polytechnic Institute. Four narrated tours will visit about 15 neighborhoods.
Each tour will also stop at four open homes along the way. Participants will get a printout of homes for sale in the western part of the city.
Recipients of this year's Healthy Neighborhood Initiative, a program to sustain neighborhoods, will be featured on the tour, including: Southern Mondawmin, Reservoir Hill and Garwyn Oaks.
A homebuyer fair focusing on the eastern region of the city is scheduled for Sept. 15.
