I have a property in Baltimore that I would like to sell to a teacher or police officer. What is the name of this program if anyone knows.


Thank you.

It's the HUD Good Neighbor program that most people are familiar with. These aren't individuals selling homes but rather the government. They are discounted by 50% in return for the participants living in the homes for 3 years. Teachers must serve students in the area where the home is listed.

Most of the homes in our area are not in areas where you would want to teach.

Are you planning on selling your home at a 50% discount? That's really kind of you. Put a notice up at a local school or police station after you have it appraised for FMV. I'm sure you'd have a teacher's or police officer's gratitude.

Contact your local police community liaison officer, for teachers contact your local AFT office (aft.org lists them by area),

Why the AFT? It doesn't represent teachers in Maryland. Better to contact Baltimore City Teacher's Association.

You're right. I'd forgotten they'd kicked MSEA out a number of years ago.

It doesn't matter. If the OP wants to sell his house he likely won't knock off 50% and if the house would be eligible it's probably in a challenged neighborhood.

The same here in Calvert, the houses in the program are where you need burglar alarms for the burglar alarms.
