40b Affordable Homes

Sawyer Hill EcoVillage was developed as part of the Chapter 40B program, a state program designed to help address the shortage of affordable housing in Massachusetts by encouraging new developments to offer at least 20-25% of the homes at prices affordable by low- and moderate-income buyers.

40B Home Prices

40B homes at Sawyerhill are sold at reduced prices set by state guidelines, which are designed to make the homes affordable to families making 70% of the area median income.

A 2BR home is being offered at $192,255.
