New Resident Katie Marks

Posted February 6, 2017


Katie moved to Old Dundalk in 2016, along with Bailey and Sasha, her best (4-legged) friends. She went from being a renter in Greektown with a roommate to becoming a home owner in Dundalk, thanks to the DRC Market Boost program and the $10K Historic Dundalk Home Buyer Grant. “I wanted to be a home buyer, but didn’t quite have the resources. I was familiar with the quality renovation work by Charm City Builders in the City, but the taxes were too high.”

“I just love my house.”

Because our Market Boost program gives funding to the developer for projects in Dundalk and includes a buyer’s incentive to assist with closing costs, Katie got her quality renovation from Charm City and help with her down payment with the Historic Dundalk Home Buyer Grant. Now in Dundalk, although she works at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, her commute is only 18 minutes!

“The City is so close.”

Katie notes that she appreciates the quiet neighborhood and the quaint, historic charm of Old Dundalk. It’s still so easy to visit her favorite spots and her friends – “It takes me only 6 minutes to get to Canton, which is so fast and easy! I salsa dance and ballroom dance all over the place, so being close to 95 and the tunnel makes it easy to get everywhere quickly.”

Hey, Katie – tell your friends to consider home ownership in Dundalk! We love your energy!
