How to Buy A City Owned Property

Baltimore Housing's Land Resources Division makes purchasing a property owned by the City of Baltimore a simple process.

The Vacants to Value initiative will use different strategies to market Baltimore's vacant properties and land. From homebuyers, contractors, investors and rehabbers, Baltimore City has an inventory of properties with good economic and community investment opportunity.

NOTE: Baltimore Housing reserves the right to decline any offer to purchase City-owned property if the offer does not advance Baltimore Housing's goals or comport with its policies for property disposition. If an offer is rejected, Baltimore Housing will provide the reason for the objection upon request.

Bundle Purchase

We encourage developers of all sizes to consider purchasing bundles of properties for redevelopment. If you want to purchase five (5) or more properties, we will work with your organization to create a project that matches the needs and plans of the neighborhoods.

Side Yard Program

Turn the vacant lot adjacent to your home into an attractive garden, expand your existing yard space, create a parking pad or add additional landscaping to your property. To learn more about purchasing your side yard, please contact the Land Resources center at 410.396.4111
