They are building three new homes on the 900 Block of 12th Street & around the corner on Jersey. Two of these homes will be 3 bedroom split-entry ranches, the home on Jersey will be a 3 bedroom true slab ranch with a zero-step entry. Two additional homes will be purchased into our community housing trust. All five homes will be sold at approximately 40% subsidy to qualifying buyers and held permanently affordable in the community housing trust. 

Eligibility requirements include:

  • Credit score of 680 or higher
  • Meet income guidelines (more information)
  • No bankruptcies in the last 2 years
  • Good bill pay within the last 2 years
  • Must attend a free homebuyer workshop, see schedule here.
  • You must be able to qualify for a home loan from a Tenants to Homeowners lender. This means you must have stable verifiable income, good credit and a low debt-to-income ratio.
  • Homes must be owner-occupied.

This program is an exciting and innovative way to make affordable housing available, and be certain it passes to others who need the lower-cost housing in the future.
