For most moderate-income Calgarians, it’s the down payment that creates a barrier to owning a home. That’s where we come in. Attainable Homes offers assistance with the down payment, helping moderate-income Calgarian families achieve their dream of homeownership. Paint the walls your favourite colours, adopt a pet, and earn equity in your investment!
We’re a for-purpose, social enterprise created and owned by The City of Calgary, helping moderate-income Calgarians with the opportunity of homeownership. We work with builders, developers, lenders and lawyers to boost you into homeownership sooner than you imagined possible.
Our Attainable Homes program helps you out with the down payment: you contribute $2,000 and we’ll pay the rest! From there it’s all about sharing; if and when you sell your home, the growth in the home’s value (the appreciation) is split between you and us. The longer you live in your home, the more you keep. We put our portion back into the program to provide more homeownership opportunities for Calgarians. Pick from a range of apartment and townhome condominiums throughout Calgary. It’s an investment you can feel great about.
