MARYLAND - City of Baltimore Surplus Real Estate

Department of Housing & Community Development

The Vacants to Value (V2V) Program offers interested homeowners and small developers the opportunity to invest in Baltimore City by purchasing and redeveloping individual or small bundles of city-owned properties. With more than 200 unique neighborhoods, Baltimore City is as diverse and magnificent as the people who call it home. While Baltimore's vacant and abandoned building stock is often viewed as a challenge, we see it as an opportunity. Cleaning up and redeveloping these properties can be a valuable investment and can help raise property values, create community amenities, increase local tax revenue, and attract new residents and businesses.
