New Affordable Homes Available for Purchase

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with Mayor Buckhorn

& Marcia Mejia of Congresswoman Castor’s Office

 

TAMPA, FL (June 18, 2017) – June is National Homeownership Month, and to celebrate Mayor Buckhorn and other officials will be on hand on Thursday, June 22, 2017 at 10:30 am to inaugurate three (3) newly constructed affordable homes in Sulphur Springs, Tampa.

These homes offer lower income homebuyers a viable option in a housing market where property values are rapidly outpacing their buying power, in what the Florida Housing Coalition has termed “an affordable housing crisis.” http://www.flhousing.org/?page_id=5915

Homebuyers looking for a house in Tampa are invited to attend the Open House showcasing these new EnergyStar-rated, single-family homes and other lots available for purchase.  These homes have the same quality of design and features as market-rate housing yet at an affordable price – models with prices beginning at $133,000.
