Langford Attainable Home Ownership Program

welcome home.

The world is ever changing. Changes in the economy and sky rocketing rents have made it increasingly harder for buyers to secure a home for their families future. With the high cost of housing and ever increasing amounts required for down payments, for many, the thought of homeownership is just an unattainable dream. In recognition of these challenges, the City of Langford has introduced a first-of-its-kind initiative in Canada to help qualified buyers secure up to 75% of the down payment* for their home.

why is it revolutionary?

The City of Langford has always been about hard work and it recognizes the hard work of individuals and families looking to secure affordable housing. Creating unique opportunities for residents is a foundation upon which Langford was built. The Attainable Home Ownership Program is not a loan, it’s a gift, a boost and a jump-start for their life and the lives of their families.

While affordable housing has always been a focus of Council, we are now directing our attention to attainable home ownership.” said Langford Mayor Stew Young. “This program comes at the height of a major housing crisis across the region and will assist those Langford families who could afford a mortgage payment but are struggling to save the amount necessary for a down payment. We want to see more Langford residents in a position where they can purchase their own home.
