(Editor's note: The following announcement comes from Lower Merion Township staff.)
The Lower Merion Affordable Housing Corporation, in cooperation with Lower Merion Township, is accepting applications for the affordable first-time homebuyers program.
The Affordable Home Ownership Program's next home will be an end-unit townhome, located at 1048 Floyd Terrace in Bryn Mawr, Lower Merion Township. It has 3 bedrooms, 1 ½ baths, a front porch and off-street parking. Special preference will be given to people who currently live or work in Lower Merion, former residents and active Lower Merion volunteer firefighters. The asking price is $190,000.
Homebuyers must meet eligibility requirements including income restrictions, good credit and savings for the down-payment. Household income restrictions are based on U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) income limits adjusted for household size.
Households with two members could have a maximum income of $50,700. Households with three members could have a maximum income of $57,050. Households with four members could have a maximum income of $63,350. (All thresholds have been lowered since the beginning of 2013.) Homebuyers must comply with program requirements and agree to resale restrictions.
