- Affordable Housing
The Town of Winchester has a First Time Home Buyer Program. Units will be listed on the left hand side of this page when they become available. Income and assist limits apply and the applicant must be able to obtain a mortgage.
A list of all available units statewide can be found on the on the following websites:
- For affordable homeownership: My Mass Home - https://www.mymasshome.org : MyMassHome.org, designed specifically to provide a central place with resources for homebuyers with low, moderate, and fixed incomes. These include a new search tool for affordable and accessible homes for sale, down payment assistance resources, first-time homebuyer education courses, and state-sponsored products offered by the Massachusetts Housing Partnership (MHP) and MassHousing.
- For affordable rental units: Housing Navigator - https://housingnavigatorma.org : Launched in 2021, the Housing Navigator Massachusetts transformed the process of searching for affordable rental housing, providing users the same experience as those searching for market-rate apartments on familiar websites like Apartments.com andTrulia.
Together, the Housing Navigator and MyMassHome will replace the now outdated MassAccess Housing Registry, which has been the primary online resource for Massachusetts residents searching for affordable, accessible housing since 1996. Though a valuable tool for tens of thousands of residents during its lifetime, MassAccess had begun to show its age with an outdated design, difficult user navigation, and limited connections to other housing resources.
