The Matt Urban Center’s Housing & Community Development department is thrilled to share that we have renovated and sold three properties in the Broadway Fillmore and South Buffalo communities to low-income first-time homebuyers!
One of the properties, located at 933 Fillmore Avenue, was owned by a couple who no longer live in the neighborhood. It had been their dream to fix up the house, but unfortunately they did not have the resources. They originally purchased the home for $18,000, but they decided to sell it to the Matt Urban Center for $1.00 so that it could be renovated and once again become an asset to the neighborhood.
There will be Open House events held at two of our CHDO properties this weekend for interested first-time homebuyers. Visitors can stop by 21 South Ryan Street, Buffalo on Saturday, March 17 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. Those interested in 933 Fillmore Avenue, Buffalo can visit this property on Sunday, March 18 from 1:00-3:00 p.m.
Our agents will be on site to answer any questions about the properties.
