Buy an Affordable Home

There are more than 500 affordable homes in the City of Cambridge. Just-A-Start works with the City of Cambridge to maintain and re-sell these homes to provide affordable homeownership opportunities to more people.

When a current owner decides to sell their home, a new buyer is selected from the Homeownership Resale Pool administered by the City of Cambridge’s Housing Division.

Please visit the City’s website for more information about the affordable homeownership program.

A copy of the homeownership application can be found here.
