Affordable Homeownership

Affordable and beautiful homes in a growing community

Homeownership Matters

Low-moderate income families deserve a chance at stability through decent and affordable homeownership.

When we began revitalizing the Blythe Oldfield neighborhood in 2014, only about 30% of homes were owner-occupied. In contrast, the average owner-occupied housing rate in Cleveland, TN is almost 50%.

When the majority of homes in neighborhoods are rentals, neighbors lose control over that area. Property owners may not invest the necessary resources in rental units to create a thriving community. 

That’s why we believe in homeownership. We hope to see Blythe Oldfield reach 50% resident-occupied homeownership. 

We sell to low-moderate income individuals and families who are either first-time homebuyers, public servants, or local resident renters.

Our Approach

When it comes to housing, we take our approach very seriously. Rapid revitalization is often used to describe a lot of positive changes in an area. However, rapid revitalization can often have unintended consequences. This quick process can cause rent and property taxes to increase to the point where existing residents can no longer afford to live in the neighborhood. As an organization, we are aware of this and are working to implement solutions to mitigate this problem by strategically restoring ownership back into the hands of the Blythe Oldfield community.
