Homeownership Opportunity – Wenham

 

This is not a typical Habitat Homeownership program offering. It is simply a resale of an affordable home.  Essex County Habitat is acting as the monitoring agent to ensure the home remains affordable in perpetuity by ensuring applicants meet income requirements.

The rest of the Homeownership section on this website does not apply to this property. All pertinent information is on this page.
