I am currently working with a non-profit organization that is renovating homes for low income buyers. These homes are completely refurbished and in a like new condition when they come to the market. To qualify you must be owner occupied and below 50% of the area median income depeding on household size. The one in Blaine that is on the market was featured in a recent blog of mine.
We have 3 more coming soon in Coon Rapids and eventually one in Andover too. These were funded in part by a NSP grant through Anoka County. Watch for upcoming homes and go look at the work already done on their first renovation. Then share with a friend who may qualify.
