Baltimore County invites county residents to learn about the home-buying process, home rehabilitation grants, how to manage credit and more at Housing Resource Day, Saturday, October 10, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Eastpoint Mall in Dundalk. 

The event will give Baltimore County residents face-to-face contact with housing industry professionals who will help prospective homeowners prepare and “learn the ropes.” The event will offer structured education sessions on home ownership, how to manage credit, how to get a home loan, and how to get funding toward a down payment or closing costs.
