LiveEvanston is a City of Evanston initiative that makes attractive, high-quality homes affordable to qualified moderate-income families. Participation in the LiveEvanston program is not limited to first-time homebuyers. However, potential homebuyers cannot own a property that is their primary residence when making an offer on a LiveEvanston home.

Qualifying Income
If your household income is between the minimum and maximum levels shown below, you may be eligible for a LiveEvanston home! The income guidelines are based on the total number of persons in your household, regardless of familial relationships, and all purchased homes must be owner-occupied.

Downpayment
You can purchase a LiveEvanston home with a downpayment of just 3.5% of the purchase price. An earnest money deposit check of $1,000 is due with an offer to purchase.

Homeownership Education
LiveEvanston also helps by providing free homeownership education. Before purchasing a home, buyers are required to complete eight hours of counseling with a HUD-certified agency. Housing Opportunity Development Corporation, one of our partners, provides a flexible program that includes workshops and one-on-one sessions to meet your needs and your schedule.
