Kevin Seawright is a Baltimore, Maryland-based entrepreneur who founded RPS Solutions LLC. His company, established in 2015, is tackling affordable housing in Baltimore in an effort to increase the number of people that own their own homes in that city. His business provides services such as the acquisition of residential properties, development, asset management, and selling homes to first-time homebuyers.
In September 2017, Seawright announced that RPS Solutions had partnered with the National Community Stabilization Trust (NCST). This is a nonprofit organization that works to make homes more affordable. The NCST program that Seawright is now able to access is called First Look. RPS Solutions will be able to acquire properties in the program before they go on the market for other buyers, keeping the costs down which will ultimately help the buyer of the property once his company sells it. These homes are abandoned vacant homes that his company will fix up as part of the process. Read this article at Live Newspaper.
