Below-Market Rate Homes for Sale in Alameda

Homebuyers who previously benefited from the City of Alameda’s Below-Market Rate (BMR) programs can pass along the opportunity to the next owner when they sell their home. This ensures that there will be affordable housing available for future generations of Alameda residents. Sign up for our Stay Connected newsletter to learn about BMR homes for sale in the City of Alameda and other opportunities in the Bay Area.

The Application Process

Buying a home, especially in the Bay Area, is an emotional journey. And because of the scarcity of affordable homes for sale, the competition to buy an affordable home in today’s market can be tremendous. Our goal is to create a qualification process that meets Alameda’s program requirements AND is respectful of your time. With this in mind, we have broken the application process down into a few key steps.
