The Purchase Process

What To Expect When You're Expecting (... a home)

When a Housing Trust home becomes available for sale by way of resale or new construction, we look to our waiting list. We will offer the home to the highest-ranking applicant on the list.


Once you have been offered a home, you will be given one week to decide if you want to purchase the home. If the home offered to you is not the right fit for you or your family, we encourage you to pass on the home until the right home becomes available.

This process is structured to help Housing Trust applicants find a home that is the right fit, at the right price, at the right time. The selection process moves quickly. While you are waiting patiently on the waiting list, it is best to prepare yourself mentally and financially for "the call".

Once you have signed a sales contract, a standard due diligence period begins. Housing Trust staff is available to help you through each step in the process as needed. Once the purchase has closed, the joy of homeownership begins.
