As a businessman with a passion for helping others, Kevin Seawright leads a company that facilitates homeownership in the city of Baltimore.

He is the Chief Operating Officer and Managing Partner of RPS Solutions LLC (Real Property Solutions) which has a goal of dramatically boosting the rate of homeownership in Baltimore. Seawright has said that the present level of homeownership in that city is 48.3%. Their goal is to boost that up to 66%.

Homeownership comes with a number of great benefits. Kevin Seawright says that the first positive is that people own their home and begin to increase their net worth as they pay off the home and gain equity.

The other big benefit, he says, is that people who own homes put down roots and have pride in their homes and neighborhoods. This leads to safer, cleaner communities with a sense of belonging. Read more: Kevin Seawright and RPS Solutions LLC Assist Baltimore City Housing Employee Attain First Home
