[ARCHIVED] Calling First Time Homebuyers! 3 Affordable Units for Sale

The original item was published from January 8, 2021 10:35 AM to March 22, 2021 1:22 PM

First Time Home Buyers Friends!

This is a clarification on the announcement below: the monthly tax of 8 Juniper St. # 23 is $15 monthly and not $357.  
Tax rates for affordable units are low because the affordable units have a special classification in the Town's Assessment system that makes them 'affordable' to families below annual household incomes at 80% of area median income.  
My apologies,
David Guzman, Housing Planner

Happy New Year!
