Does an affordable home fit your life?

How do you qualify for an affordable home?

1) Maximum household income*

Affordable homes are also called income-qualified homes because they are for individuals or families whose gross (before-tax) annual income is at or below the figures below:

1-person: $42,950        2-person: $49,100

3-person: $55,250        4-person: $61,350

5-person: $66,300        6-person: $71,200

* These maximum income figures are subject to change based on U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development annual updates. (4/14)

2) Primary residence

Your affordable home must be your only home, where you live full-time.

3) Finances

You must meet your mortgage lender’s requirements for income, debt and credit. Depending on your lender and the kind of mortgage you have, you may also have to supply a down payment and closing costs.


Just to be clear

The thing about buying an affordable home is that it stays affordable for you and anyone who buys your home. When you buy an income-qualified home at Stapleton, you agree that your home will appreciate at no more than 3.5%* annually, which helps maintain the home’s affordability for the next family who lives there.

* The 3.5% appreciation cap lasts for a period of 15 years following the home’s initial sale, after which the home may be sold at market value.
