How to Apply

If you are interested in an existing BMR unit being sold by the owner, please read our BMR Ownership Steps to learn about how you can prepare to apply.  After reviewing the BMR Ownership Steps and BMR Program Guidelines, please contact the sales office or listing agent to view the unit and make a purchase offer to buy the unit.

City of Emeryville’s Homebuyer Program

Homebuyers who previously benefited from the City of Emeryville’s Below-Market Rate (BMR) Homebuyer program 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 Emeryville residents. Bookmark this page or sign up here to learn about BMR homes that may be for sale in the City of Emeryville and other opportunities.

A Below-Market-Rate (BMR) unit is a unit that is priced to be affordable to households that are moderate income or below. Moderate income is defined as an annual income of 120% or less of the AMI, and varies depending on the number of people in the household. AMI is adjusted every year. Usually, the BMR price is lower than the prices of other units in the same development that are being sold on the open market. Sometimes BMR units are priced for and restricted to households that are low income (80% or less of AMI) or median income (100% or less of AMI). BMR owners must occupy the unit as a primary residence.

To learn more about the City of Emeryville Homebuyer Program, please see the BMR Program Guidelines.
