Fort Meade - USNA - Andrews AFB: How to Get $2,000 When You Buy a Bowie MD Home

How to Get $2,000 When You Buy a Bowie MD Home

Buy a home in the City of Bowie and receive a $2,000 grant if you’re a police officer, city employee or teacher.

 

12318 Whitehall DriveYou can find a real bargain in Belair at Bowie.  Some models are selling as much as $50–$75,000 below what they did only two years ago.   I have a beautiful listing that settles this week at just $275,000 – an owner occupied rancher with a huge addition, updated kitchen and baths, new windows and more.  That’s lower than the price of most townhones in nearby Crofton, Gambrills or Odenton. 

In fact, there are more than 500 homes for sale in Greater Bowie right now, including 107 in the nearby 20715 zipcode.  They range from $160,000 for a townhome in Belair Town to $639,000 for a home in Saddlebrook West. My son and his family live in Belair at Bowie, and they love their local school - not to mention the shorter commute to Arlington than they had from Crofton.

 

Ensleigh in Bowie MDBowie is collaborating with the Prince George’s County Council and the Maryland Department of Housing to offer the City Workforce and Bowie First programs.  These will provide $1,000 in closing assistance to eligible home buyers, and the Maryland Mortgage Program will provide matching funds for a total of $2,000. 

You can search Bowie Homes for Sale  by clicking on the link provided, and then let me know if you’d like to inspect the interior of anything you see there.  You’ll find a wide range of homes including both owner-occupied homes and bargain-basement priced foreclosures, short sales and REO’s.

I guess they had to draw the line somewhere!  They don't have "real estate agents" on the list either.  Heck, they don't have "firemen:, either.

We also have a program in our area for public service people including Fire, police and teachers. Good plan I hope it helps them.
