Today there are young people in this country who can't live where they grew up. There are people who can't live where they work. Instead, they must commute great distances because they're priced out of the market and there's a lack of decent affordable housing.
To that end, the Columbus REALTORS® has an active Affordable Housing Committee that strives to keep its members abreast of affordable housing programs and opportunities.
The Committee has identified affordable housing as properties priced $150,000 and below.
Following are programs in place that help us address the affordable housing market in the Columbus Region.
