Tuesday, 4 December 2012: Attainable Homes Calgary Corporation (AHCC) has received over 6,000 registrations for its attainable home ownership program since it launched in late 2009, demonstrating there is a strong need to support aspiring home owners.
The program supports eligible households earning up to $80,000 annually by delivering quality entry-level homes at attainable prices, as well as providing gifted down payments.
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.
