What Are the Advantages of Purchasing a 128 Crivello Ave?
Owning a below market rate (BMR) home in Bay Point may provide you distinct buying opportunities and advantages that you may not have in purchasing a similar non-restricted home.These primary advantages include:

  • The selling price is fixed. It is set by the County and cannot be bid up.
  • The terms you offer to buy the home do not affect your ability to participate in the purchase. Accordingly, you will not be competing against buyers that are trying to buy in all cash.
  • The buyer of this home will be chosen through a fair and unbiased lottery process. Giving everyone and equal chance to purchase the home.
  • Households that meet or fall under the 80% AMI limit for Contra Costa County may be able to secure additional homebuyer assistance in the form of a $15,000 loan.This loan will turn into a grant after five (5) years of owner occupancy.

 
What Are the Key Ownership Restrictions?
This home has 3-year resale restriction term that starts when the homebuyer closes escrow. Owners who purchase a below market rate property must adhere to the following ownership restrictions for 3 years after purchase:

  • The property must be owner occupied – it cannot be rented out
  • The property can only be resold to an income eligible household. Buyers must have a gross household income which is at or less than the required Area Median Income (AMI) for Contra Costa County
  • Any new buyer of the property must have at least three people in the household (this includes dependents)
  • You cannot refinance your property for an amount greater than the first loan amount you received at the time you purchased the property
  • The county will assign the resale price of the property if the property is sold before the 3 year resale restriction is terminated


All of the above restrictions will fall off the property at the end of the 3-year term.
