Q: How much money do I need to make?
A: AHSTI's program is restricted to households that make 80% of the area median income, but we will have our subsidiary Framework Homes on hand at the event as a possible alternative for households that make more. We will also be able to provide outside financing options through our partnership with the Nationwide Mortgage Collaborative.
Q: How much do you require as a down payment?
A: AHSTI's program requires a $3,000 deposit at the time you reserve your lot. The deposit is 100% refundable so if for some reason your loan does not go through we will refund your entire deposit.
