Southampton Teachers Purchase Affordable Home Through Town Re-Sale Program

Community-Housing Logo 1x1

Daniel and Jessica Gomez, employees of the Southampton School District, are the new owners of an affordable home resold through the Town’s affordable housing program.  The original owners purchased the unit at “The Courtyards”, on Major’s Path in North Sea, over ten years ago through the lottery program and recently retired, allowing the unit to be available for resale.  The Gomez family qualified for the affordable property and are now the second owners.

“This is how the affordable housing process is supposed to work,” said Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman.  “When a unit opens up, our program maintains the affordability for another qualified homebuyer.  The Town of Southampton has been working diligently to create as many affordable housing opportunities as possible, including new construction, inclusionary zoning for builders and updating the accessory apartment law to increase the number of affordable rentals.”

This unit was marketed by email to the Town’s Attainable Housing Registry and was featured on the Town Web site.  As current homeowners move on, there will be more opportunities to purchase affordable resales in the future.
