Affordable Homeownership Program

The City of Livermore’s Affordable Homeownership Program (also known as the Below Market Rate (BMR) Program is an important part of the City’s overall affordable housing programs. Over the years, the Affordable Homeownership Program has provided residents with a valuable source of affordable ownership housing that would not have been achievable by other means.  There are several homes in Livermore that were built, under the City's Affordable Homeownership Program, to be affordable for very-low to moderate income first-time home buyers. These homes become available for purchase by eligible buyers when new developments are built or when existing homeowners decide to sell. These homes do have occupancy and resale restrictions, that require owner occupancy and restricts the way in which a buyer may re-sell the home. For more information about this program or other homeownership programs, please contact Hello Housing.  If you would like to be notified of affordable homeownership opportunities as they become available, please add your contact information to our Affordable Housing Interest List.
