- explain the home buying process and the responsibilities of home ownership
- tell you about special programs and grants to help with closing costs, down payment

Where to start?
So glad you asked – because you’ve got options, and home values are strong in Dundalk. Brick row homes are in established neighborhoods, yours to personalize. They’re sturdy as fortresses, with yards that give you green space and parking. Many are renovated, or maybe you’d like to do your own.
You’ll find single detached homes, from small cottages to generous floor plans, in nearly all neighborhoods. Some are new; others have lots of history and are ready for you to add yours.
Waterfront homes span a wide variety – both in type, from new town homes and detached homes, to all sorts of houses that may even have origins as second ‘seasonal’ homes. You’ll find plenty of places to check out – 14 of Dundalk’s 21222 neighborhoods touch waterfront – and many have local waterfront green spaces to add to the ‘I’m on vacation’ feel.
How about a real estate agent familiar with Dundalk, a mortgage lender who knows home buyer programs and grants? Maybe you’d like to talk with a housing inspector or a contractor experienced with renovations in the area. We can help.
