Ironically, one of our challenges as an organization is convincing people that we're real. We really develop homes that are both beautiful and affordable; we really provide financial assistance by way of gifted five per cent down payments; and we really offer middle-income Calgarians an easy, early entry point into homeownership. Yet despite our best efforts to educate, certain jaded perceptions persist.
We find that the best way to shape the public's ideas about who we are and what we offer is by sharing some of the stories of Calgarians we've helped. These people – once skeptics themselves – have broken free from the rental cycle and moved into beautiful homes in great parts of the city thanks to us. Granted, these families likely would have purchased a home with their own finances one day...but thanks to our Attainable Home Ownership Program, that day arrived far sooner than they had dreamed possible.

WE MAKE HOME OWNERSHIP HAPPEN
Attainable Homes Calgary Corporation (AHCC) is a nonprofit social enterprise and wholly owned subsidiary of The City of Calgary that delivers well-appointed, entry-level homes for Calgarians who have been caught in the city’s growing housing affordability gap.
Through our Attainable Home Ownership Program, we connect builders, developers, lenders, lawyers and others to bring down the upfront costs of ownership so qualifying Calgarians can buy their very own home with a $2,000 down payment. Furthermore, when you decide to buy an attainable home, you're also choosing to pay it forward to help another family in the future. When you eventually decide to refinance or sell your home on the market, a share of the appreciation goes back into the program to fund more developments that will help even more people get a foot on the property ladder.
Do you aspire to own a home of your own? Contact us today and let us show you just how attainable this milestone can be.
