The goal of CHOP’s Homeowner Program is to provide quality, affordable homeownership opportunities to the community’s working individuals and families who are priced out of the current real estate market. This opportunity is meant to help not only the first homeowner, but also those that follow. Together we are creating permanently affordable homes in the Patagonia area. CHOP uses the Community Land Trust (CLT) model to achieve this goal. The model can be applied to new home construction, homes in need of rehabilitation, homes that already meet occupancy requirements, and permanently affordable rentals.
