Seawright says it has always been his passion to help those who want to help themselves. The program also partners with the city of Baltimore to renovated homes and give people who cannot qualify under normal circumstances the opportunity to have a mortgage.
Seawright developed the idea after talking the son of a former co-worker, who wanted to buy a home of his own and could not afford it. He asked the young man if he would be okay with purchasing a renovated home that would cost much less. “I jumped at the opportunity,” said Jerel Brown. Seawright says the entire program gives him a great sense of pride.
The goal of RPS is to help the city of Baltimore surpass the 48.5% homeowner rate.
