New Construction

New Construction

NeighborWorks Lincoln builds a variety of new homes each year, both subsidized (affordable) and market rate. New homes are offered first to individuals who have completed the Homebuyer Education Course. While each of the homes is built to the same high-quality standards, not all of the homes are exactly the same. NeighborWorks builds one- and two-story single-family homes, duplexes, and townhouses in neighborhoods across Lincoln, with special emphasis on core and disinvested areas. These homes range from 2 bedroom/1.5 bath layouts to units that are expandable to 5 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. This array of home type and size has historically accommodated a broad array of household types and family sizes.

To reach necessary production levels and ensure enduring affordability, NeighborWorks Lincoln will be narrowing this range over the next few years. Our focus will shift to smaller units that can meet the needs of our low- and middle-income clients during critical and transitional phases of their lives and help them transition into the non-subsidized market when they are ready to do so. Many of these homes will be placed into the Community Land Trust to ensure their resale to additional low- and middle-income buyers for years, and generations, to come.
