The Maryland Mortgage Program is run by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development. The goal of the program is to provide incentives and assistance to help eligible borrowers become homeowners.
The program offers borrowers assistance in a few ways -
Down Payment and Closing Cost Assistance Federal Tax Credits Partner Match Programs SmartBuy
Also, the house has to be used as a primary residence and the borrower cannot own any other real estate.
Are there limits on which areas you can buy a house?
Yes and No.
If you are a First-Time Homebuyer, meaning you haven’t owned a home in the past three years, then no. You can buy anywhere in the state.
If you aren’t a First-Time Homebuyer, then you are restricted to areas that the state has designated as Targeted Areas

What Hoops are there to jump through?
All the programs require homebuyer education. The requirements vary by county and so do the eligible courses. Some counties require the course to be completed before entering into a contract of sale for a house and others do not. Best to check with a lender before beginning the process.
About Alexander Necker, Real Estate Sales Consultant
I specialize in selling the Baltimore Metropolitan’s Premier Homes.
I am an Eagle Scout. I mention this because the process of becoming an Eagle Scout provided me with the foundation by which I live my life. The values of trustworthiness, integrity, and helpfulness have allowed me to become the man I am today.
The words that describe me are:
Driver of my own professional destiny
C onduit for connecting people for professional development
Devoted husband with a wonderful wife
Father to 2 beautiful children with growing college funds
Student of Finance and Investments
After graduating college and starting a career in my field of study (agronomy), I quickly rose to the position of assistant and then superintendent of private golf courses. After 17 years in the golf business, I decided it was time to change to a career where I would not be at the mercy of the uncontrollable forces of sun, wind and rain. I chose a field where I would be the master of my fate, where the hard work and the long hours to which I am accustomed would be the determinant of my success.
The primary reason I am in the real estate business is to help people. A real estate transaction is one of the largest financial transactions you will ever undertake. Everyone deserves a real estate partner that understands and appreciates that fact. My focus on integrity, trust and communication are nothing less than I would want for myself, my family or friends entering into a large financial proceeding. I am committed to being the one real estate agent that keeps my client's best interests front and center.
In real estate, I consider myself to be a true professional in the same vein as the physician, the attorney and the accountant whom you must trust with the most important assets of your life. Nothing less is acceptable.

"We had to do most of the sale from California and Alex was very responsive to the problems that came up with the inspection. He found an electrician, a construction company to add one support to the deck and a company to hook up a sewer line to the street."
