First Story believes homeownership should be within reach for every hardworking man and woman. To make it happen, First Story offers a zero-down, zero-interest, 30-year home loan to qualified individuals and families. We work hand-in-hand with our building partner, Hayden Homes, and with our trade and supply partners, to get a new First Story home up and running. Homes are sold move-in ready with all appliances, washer & dryer, blinds and front & backyard landscaping.
While it’s our job to build quality homes and provide the interest free loans, it’s our families’ job to prepare for a successful homeownership journey. We encourage all applicants to contact your local housing authority or housing assistance program to take specific home buying and budgeting classes prior to applying for a First Story home.
First Story believes in an integrated approach to affordable housing. All First Story homes are located in Hayden Homes communities and built with the same quality and aesthetics as all of the homes in that community. Hayden Homes selects the floor plan for each home and no custom options are available.
First Story is excited to offer homes for sale in the McKenzie Meadows neighborhood in Sisters, Oregon. To become eligible to apply for a home, applicants must first complete the Homebuyer Education Class and complete a home buying counseling session through NeighborImpact.
