These new construction homes are high quality, with quartz countertops, soft-close hinges on cabinets, contemporary lighting, and high-efficiency furnaces – features that are unusual in the affordable housing realm. They are built with energy and low maintenance costs in mind, making them a great option for those who are looking for a home that’s both sustainable and affordable.

Additional features of these 3 bedroom, 2 bath homes include: large front porch, finished basement with spacious living room, open concept kitchen with island, many windows allowing for a lot of natural light, parking pad (no garage), and ENERGY STAR appliances.Open-Concept-Kitchen

Clint Twedt-Ball, Founder and Executive Director of Matthew 25, explains the importance of these homes: “At a time of a national housing crisis, Matthew 25 is working hard to create high quality, affordable housing that will add to the vibrancy of the neighborhoods where we work.”

Homebuyers must make 80% or less than area median income and plan to live in the home. Matthew 25 has earned grants to lower the cost of the home from the building costs of $286,000 to $224,500. In addition, lenders are offering other opportunities to lower the cost of the home by up to $58,000 through subsidies and grants. Information on specific  grants and subsidies is available through Neighborhood Finance Corporation.
