Homeownership with BHC

See all of our home listings

Owning a home is part of the American dream, but often it is beyond the reach of many working families. Better Housing Coalition is committed to providing opportunities to families to purchase their first home - one that is not only affordable but also built to last a lifetime.

We Build Green

Every BHC home, whether new or old, is designed with classic architectural details, quality construction, modern amenities, and charming exterior and interior details. Better Housing Coalition is a leader in green building, constructing homes that are energy efficient, low maintenance and affordable. Each home is built to Earthcraft™ standards, which serves as a blueprint for healthy, comfortable homes. Earthcraft™ homes reduce utility bills and protect the environment by featuring quality insulation and air-sealing, sustainable building products, recycled materials, Energy Star™ appliances, energy efficient heat pumps and a separate fresh air ventilating system which contributes to healthy indoor air quality. BHC homes are built with cement board siding that has a 50 year guarantee.

We Can Help You

Our homes are generally available to first time homebuyers with low to moderate income. Excellent financing packages can help make monthly mortgage payments more reasonable than monthly rents. Monthly payments may vary from $900 to $1200 depending on the loan amount and the type of financing available. Through various municipal and private organizations, down payments and closing cost grants are available to qualified buyers.

BHC has many affordable options in a variety of neighborhoods in the Richmond region. Let us help you find a home you can afford. For more information, please contact Alison Snow at 644-0546 x21 or a.snow@betterhousingcoalition.org.
