This two bedroom unit will be offered to income eligible, ready buyers through a pre-lottery application, lottery, and income certification process who can enter into a Purchase and Sales (P&S) agreement within 15 days after the City determines their eligibility and the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) approves it. Interested buyers should be prepared to proceed and meet the income eligibility guidelines by collecting their past three years of W2s and federal tax returns, including all schedules and pages, and the most recent three months of all income and asset statements. The City reserves the right to request more income/asset information during the income certification. This property is deed restricted and the sale price is set by formula. Buyers of this unit will be subject to the same equity and resale provisions.
