The Town of Huntington is accepting applications online through Aug.17 for a 4-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom single family home eligible for the affordable housing lottery at Harborfields Estates Phase 1.
“This is a very unique opportunity for a first-time homebuyer,” Supervisor Chad Lupinacci said. “The exterior is beautiful and I cannot wait to see what it looks like when the interior is complete.”
The town, in cooperation with the Huntington Community Development Agency and Island Homes Estates, encourages all eligible individuals and families who meet the income and asset guidelines to enter the lottery for the opportunity to purchase one affordable single-family home, with four (4) bedrooms and two-and-a-half (2.5) bathrooms, currently available for sale at Harborfields Estates on Pulaski Road in Greenlawn. Applicants must be able to qualify for a mortgage.
The Town’s Community Development Agency Director, Leah M. Jefferson, said, “I would encourage everyone interested to apply – don’t let the fact that there is one unit available in the lottery discourage you from applying. This is an absolutely gorgeous home.”
The lottery selection will be held in Room 114 at Huntington Town Hall on Wednesday, September 5, 2018 at 5:00 PM.
Priority will be given to applicants who are residents of the Town of Huntington or who are employed by a business or entity that maintains a verifiable physical location within the Town of Huntington, or non-residents who have parents, children, grandchildren or grandparents who are residents of the Town of Huntington. Applicants who do not meet the above criteria are also welcome to enter the Town’s affordable housing lottery.
The home is priced at $221,600. Real estate taxes on the unit are estimated to be $6,000 annually and estimated HOA fees will be approximately $460 annually, billed semi-annually.
A non-refundable application processing fee of $26.50 must be paid online with submission of the application. All applications must be submitted online.
Eligible applicants will appear in list form on Aug. 31, at http://www.huntingtonny.gov/
The house is expected to be move-in ready by the end of the year.
