Must be a first-time homebuyer or have not owned a home in the last 3 years.
- Willingness to Partner
Homebuyers participate in the construction of their home by completing 200 hours of sweat equity. Hours can also be completed by attending required classes, volunteering at our ReStores or by volunteering in your community.
We serve households that make between 35%- 80% of the Area Median Income for the Portland Metro Area.
- Ability to Pay
Applicants must demonstrate the ability to repay an affordable mortgage. We verify income, work history and credit during the application process. Applicants must have a minimum verifiable combined gross income of $30,000 and 2 years of work history for any employment income.
