The Maryland Association of REALTORS® (MAR) is the largest trade association in the State with a membership of over 23,000 real estate professionals. It exists to develop and deliver programs and services to maintain and elevate the high standards of the real estate business and the professional and ethical conduct of its practitioners. MAR seeks to create and support affordable housing opportunities for all Marylanders, and recognizes that education is the first step in this process. This website was created to provide information to consumers to help them determine whether and how they may be able to obtain financing to become a homeowner, as well as general information on the home buying process.
To further support affordable housing efforts, in 2001 MAR created the Partnership for Housing Foundation (PHF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, to provide an opportunity for real estate professionals (and members of the broader housing industry) to have a more direct impact on development of affordable housing opportunities throughout Maryland. Please visit PHF’s website at www.partnershipforhousing.org, or visit their Facebook page for more information about programs and services related to housing.
