Home Ownership Could Be Easier Than You Think

Posted by on February 28, 2013 - 0 Comments

The City of Evanston is taking steps to make home ownership easier for moderate income families through the LiveEvanston program.

The city’s NSP2 program, marketed as LiveEvanston, is a great opportunity for families who think homeownership in Evanston is out of their reach, or for people who work in Evanston and want to live closer to their work. “LiveEvanston makes high-quality Evanston homes truly affordable,” said Mayor Tisdahl who commends LiveEvanston on working with local employers to inform their employees about the program.

Eligibility is based on an income scale, and is not limited to first-time homebuyers. For people with disabilities, you may even find some great, accessible options opening up in the near future. Here’s an example of a fully-accessible home that’s available soon:
