Kevin Seawright, representing RPS Solutions, recently appeared on the Larry Young Morning Show to talk about his company’s efforts to revitalize Baltimore’s image through boosting affordable home ownership. It’s an effort, Seawright insists on Twitter, is both good for the under appreciated sections of the city and keeping in line with RPS Solutions’ own ambitions in real estate.
It is no secret that the city of Baltimore has had trouble drawing new people into its more urbanized centers, and it’s those areas of the city that has drawn the attention of RPS Solutions.
The majority of clients that come to RPS Solutions are seeking property for the first time in their lives. With a market that is still unsure of how to treat these new home buyers in a real estate market that’s still trying to engender confidence in the public following the housing crash in 2007. RPS sees these areas as a perfect fit for their clients who are looking for affordable housing in Baltimore. It provides them with an investment that is relatively low risk while also affording them the opportunity to be part of an emerging community as an influx of home buyers attracts new business.
At present, Baltimore has a home ownership rate of about 48%. Seawright has stated that the mission of RPS Solutions is to boost that number significantly in a relatively small window by making the city more attractive to young and intrepid people looking to help develop the areas in which they live.
Kevin Seawright is a project manager that has worked for both governments and private organizations that have taken him to many major cities in America. He’s chosen to make Baltimore his home, putting his experience to work to revitalize the city’s image by boosting home ownership.
