Affordable units will be indistinguishable from market rate units on the exterior. Interior rooms, bathrooms, finishes, etc. may differ.
All units are sold in accordance with state DHCD Guidelines. The initial purchase price was established so that a household earning 70% of the Boston-Cambridge-Quincy, MA-NH HUD Metro FMR Area Median Income (AMI) would not spend more than 30% of its gross income for housing costs. These properties are sold below the market prices with deed restrictions. These restrictions maintain the affordability of the property in perpetuity using resale price limitations.
