Baltimore Housing Hosts Vacants to Value Model Home Open House

Local builders design an affordable luxury model home for prospective homebuyers

(Baltimore, MD - July 10, 2013) Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and City Life Builders hosted a Vacants to Value model home open house at a formerly blighted, now renovated home in the Middle East community near Johns Hopkins Hospital. City Life Builders will use the model home for prospective homebuyers to design their new Vacants to Value home.

"Today is another great milestone for Vacants to Value, turning this vacant home into a dream home is astounding," said Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. "Prospective homebuyers can now come to this model and design every detail of their home. It is opportunities like these, that will help us bring 10,000 families to Baltimore over the next 10 years."

As a women owned business, City Life Builders restores and re-builds housing while working with the community to make neighborhoods stronger, safer, cleaner and greener, and provide employment opportunities to local residents. City Life Builders will rehab 50 vacant properties throughout the City houses located in up and coming communities, with rich history, that are undergoing great positive change. City Life homes can be fully customized to fit a homebuyers every need in a variety of locations of their choosing. Homeowners can choose their home at a great price, with financial incentives programs that are unbeatable. Some homeowners have received incentives up to $30,000 toward closing costs!

City Life is making the custom, luxury home buying experience available and affordable for Maryland residents. "It used to be only people buying very high-end homes, over $500,000, could build a custom dream home," said Anne Riggle, President of City Life Builders. Due to current market prices, incredible tax incentives and other financial perks, living a City Life in the home you've always imagined is within your reach.

Launched in November of 2010, Mayor Rawlings-Blake's Vacants to Value initiative seeks to encourage reinvestment in neighborhoods impacted by blighted properties by strengthening code enforcement, promoting rehabilitation, streamlining the sale of vacant city property, and, by providing new, targeted incentives for homebuyers and developers who invest in vacant homes.
