Pre-purchase Counseling

Pre-purchase counseling helps first-time homebuyers understand the home buying process and prepare for the responsibilities of homeownership.

Please note: To be eligible for funds through Maryland State and/or Baltimore City incentive programs, first-time homebuyers must attend a homebuyer education workshop and one-on-one pre-purchase counseling.

DUE TO COVID-19, all counseling is being held remotely.

To schedule an individual session (via Zoom and/or telephone) contact Stephanie Davis at stdavis@chaibaltimore.org or 410-500-5310.
