The ARCH / HOME Investment Partnerships Program:
ARCH Community Housing Trust has teamed up with the Idaho Housing and Finance Association (IHFA) to build and make this brand-new home available via the HOME program.
- HUD determines the maximum purchase price, which is $283,000 at this time; and is recalculated annually based on Area Median Income.
- HOME will contribute $40,000 to the purchase in the form of a subsidy, which stays with the property when sold.
- The Land will belong to ARCH, the buyer will pay $30/month for the land lease. This keeps the property taxes lower than other market-rate homes.
- The buyer only needs to get a mortgage for an estimated $173,000.
- Purchaser understands that they must notify ARCH of an intention to sell AND ARCH will have an option to purchase for 30 days once the option price has been established. The intent is to ensure that qualified household on the ARCH waiting list have an option to purchase in the order in which they applied.
- Fee at Resale: The administrative fee due to ARCH at the time Purchaser re-sells the Property shall be as specified in the Land Lease and may be up to 3% of the sale price.
|Estimated Home Price:|
|HOME Funds Subsidy||$40,000*|
|Land Appraised Value||$70,000*|
* Numbers are subject to revision according to HUD annual requirements.
Program Requirements & Deed Restrictions:

- There is no residency requirement to purchase, however the owner must use the home as a primary residence.

- The goal of affordable housing is to keep it affordable. For this reason, when you go to sell your home, you will need to have it appraised, and there will be restrictions on the amount of appreciation that you can earn. The Sale is of the improvements only and must be to an income qualified buyer.
- There are limitations on the appreciation that can be realized. See the example in the Deed Restriction document under “Sample Resale Calculation”.
- There may be a 3% fee at resale. The purpose of allowing the land trust the ability to charge 3% is so that if the land trust buys the home and then re-sells the home, they are able to pay Realtor fees. ARCH would prefer not to purchase the home but ARCH wishes that when a home comes up for resale, that the people on the ARCH waiting list are given an opportunity to purchase it based on their priority on the waiting list.
