Homeownership Opportunity at 1 Briggs Way

Kennebunkport Heritage Housing Trust, KHHT, is working with the current owners of 1 Briggs Way to find an income-qualified buyer for their two-story, three-bedroom, 2.5 bath home in Kennebunkport. This home is part of our first neighborhood, Heritage Woods, and was sold as a new home in early 2022. As part of our commitment to permanent affordability, this home will be sold to a household earning no more than 120% of the area median income, AMI, and will be sold for $326,094. The new owners will need to sign a land lease at closing that will ensure the continuing affordability of the home through a maximum sales price formula and income restrictions. This home must be used as a year-round primary residence and the new homeowner will need to live in the home for 12 months of each year unless approved by the KHHT Board. This property cannot be used as a rental property nor can it be used as a short term rental property. 

We will choose the new owner through a lottery process on Thursday, June 27. Details of this process and a FAQ about the process can be found linked below.

 

STEP 1:

The first thing prospective buyers should do is to submit the following to prove income eligibility:

  1. The KHHT homeownership application

  2. 2023 federal tax returns for all members of the household earning income

  3. The two most recent pay stubs for all household members earning income 

 

We will inform you if you are or are not income eligible based on the materials you provide.

 

STEP 2:

No later than Monday, June 24, at 12:00 pm (noon) prospective homebuyers must submit proof of:

  1. Completion of a homeownership course through YCCAC, Avesta, or another hoMEworks class provider

  2. Pre-approval for a mortgage to purchase this home. We encourage prospective homebuyers to explore the mortgage options through MaineHousing to secure the lowest interest rates available

 

Applications and proof of income should be sent as soon as possible to determine income eligibility. No one who is not income eligible will be entered into the lottery. No late applications will be accepted, no exceptions. Materials can be mailed to:

 

KHHT

PO Box 333

Kennebunkport, ME, 04046

 

You may also drop materials off in the KHHT mailbox at the Kennebunkport Town Hall. The KHHT mailbox is located in the Town Manager/Finance office.
