Bungalow, colonial or cape cod. Spacious two-family or compact cottage. Quaint brick or beachy shake shingles. Newly rehabbed or ready for your own touch. Whatever your preferences, North Shore Collinwood has options for you.
As one of Cleveland’s oldest neighborhoods, we have an incredible array of historic and distinct housing types. Each home is steeped in history and has a quirky personality all its own. Would you expect any less in North Shore Collinwood?
And sure, an amazing house in an amazing neighborhood is its own reward. But what’s really turning heads around the country – and around the globe – is just how affordable owning a piece of this distinct community is.
Our work starts with distressed housing, houses that have stood in our neighborhood for 70, 80, even 100 years but require a lot of tender care to make them homes for the 21st century. For some of them, that means that we take on a full gut rehab, adding open floor plans, energy efficiency features and contemporary finishes. We routinely invest $125,000 into these houses, and thanks to the support of our public and private funders, we’re able to offer them to new homeowners at effective prices as low as $75,000.
If you can believe it, we offer homeownership opportunities at even lower price points. For homeowners who want to create their own home their own way – and don’t mind putting a little sweat equity into the process – we offer houses in moderate to good condition for just $8,500. After you purchase, you then have 6 months to complete a list of modest rehab work, and after that, the house is yours! Click to view available properties.
It’s a truly unique approach to neighborhood revitalization – using low-cost homeownership to make sure that high quality of life doesn’t mean out-of-control cost-of-living. That’s why we’re working double-time to support dozens and dozens of new homeowners. Read more details about our homeownership program, give us a call and make sure you’re among them!
