Effective 1/20/17, the Maryland Mortgage Program is offering the Maryland Mortgage Grant Assist Program.
Grant Assist offers homebuyers closing cost assistance in the form of a 4% grant of the first loan amount.
Grant funds must be used exclusively for closing costs of the mortgage loan/home purchase.
Grant funds may not be used for down payment or combined with any down payment assistance products offered by CDA.
The grant must always equal 4%; no higher or lower percentages are allowed.
If the grant exceeds closing costs the excess will be applied as a principal curtailment.
Employers, builders, developers, non-profits or other contributors may offer additional assistance; however, the Partner Match Program is not available and the assistance will not be matched by the Department.

Ski/In Ski/Out Property-Wisp Resort. Ski in/ski out or slope side access have different personalities just as lakefront does. For example, you may be able to ski-in but not out or vice versa. You might have to walk to the chairlift to get to the slopes but then you can ski back to your property. True ski-in/ski-out access means you’re actually skiing to and from your mountain property. Ski-in/ski-out can be located here at Wisp on the upper to mid portions of the mountain. Wisp Resort has condos at the base of the mountain near the lodge as well. The perks and conveniences of this style property is second to none. Imagine having a cocktail watching the game while rotating time on the slopes with the family. Boot warmers, ski lockers, washer/dryer with a mud room help keep everything convenient and easy. Come in from a ski sesh, strip and get into warm clothes and defrost by the fireplace with a hot cup of cocoa! When you get warmed and energized, hit the slopes again!
