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 their trade and supply partners, to build a new, move-in ready home. Homes are sold with all appliances, washer & dryer, blinds and front & backyard landscaping. Floor plans are pre-selected and no custom options are available.
First Story homes are located in charming neighborhoods and thriving Hayden Homes communities. Homes are built with the same quality, care and aesthetics as all of the homes in that community. This integrated approach to homeownership provides a hand-up to deserving and capable families.
While it’s our mission to provide quality homes and interest free loans, it’s our families’ job to prepare for a successful homeownership journey. We ask 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 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. Classes available 11/16/19 & 01/11/20. Completion of the Homebuyer Education Class is not a guarantee of an interview or selection for housing.
