Purchase Rehab &
Homeowner Development Homes
East Liberty Development, Inc. is offering for sale vacant homes that are in need of renovation. These properties are for homeowner occupancy only. Our goal is to increase homeownership in the neighborhood and to ensure that properties are renovated in accordance with the guidelines of the community plan.
To purchase these homes, you must be either a prospective homeowner looking for purchase-rehab opportunities or a developer who will renovate properties for sale to homeowners.
All offers for purchase-rehab or homeowner development should include a development plan, scope of work, and budget. ELDI staff, board, and committees review proposals before accepting any offers.
We offer the following support to individuals and developers who are interested in purchasing and renovating these properties:
- Purchase-Rehab: We provide guidance to prospective homeowners as they go through the purchase-rehab process.
- Homeowner Development: Our “flipper program” guides developers who are renovating properties for sale to homeowners.
