Nation’s Largest Homeownership Event Comes to Baltimore

NACA’s Achieve the Dream Tour Offers Free Same-Day Mortgage Qualification


(BALTIMORE, MD) – The nation’s leading homeownership organization announces the most effective and unprecedented home buying event available to would-be homeowners. The Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America’s (NACA) Achieve the Dream tour kicks off at 8am Thursday, April 26 at the Radisson Hotel Downtown Inner Harbor, 101 W Fayette Street in Baltimore. Thousands of prospective homeowners from the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area are expected to attend the event for a chance to get a same day mortgage qualification. The Achieve the Dream event will run five days from 8am through 8pm, ending Monday, April 30th.

The Achieve the Dream event is a one-stop mortgage operation with workshops, one-on-one comprehensive counseling and underwriters to approve/pre-approve borrowers for a NACA mortgage. NACA’s mortgage is unique as it features no down payment, no closing costs or fees and no private mortgage insurance. Everyone receives a below market interest rate and perfect credit is not required. The interest rate can also be bought down to virtually zero. Bank of America and CitiMortgage have committed over $13 billion dollars to this mortgage program, and participants can buy homes anywhere in their area. The cost of significant repairs or renovations can also be built into the mortgage. Single and multi-family homes and condos are all eligible.

NACA, the nation’s largest HUD-certified non-profit organization, is expected to counsel thousands of Baltimore-Washington area residents during the event. Most expected to attend will be first time home buyers, with low and moderate-income.

“Affordable housing is an issue in the DC, Maryland and Virginia areas, especially for working people,” said NACA CEO Bruce Marks. “Our Achieve the Dream events open the floodgates to those blocked from the dream of affordable homeownership.

Many will be qualified for a NACA mortgage during the event and many more will be on the road to homeownership and the building personal financial security”.

Over 10,000 began their path to home ownership during recent Achieve the Dream events in Charlotte, NC and Miami, FL:

Homeowners with an unaffordable mortgage are also welcomed to take part in the event where they’ll have the opportunity to meet with a NACA Home Save counselor for assistance in modifying their mortgage.  NACA’s Home Save and Purchase programs have been highlighted on the national and local news as the most effective in providing affordable homeownership.
