Learn About MeadowView’s Deed Restriction
MeadowViews sell to qualifying households for a below market rate with a deed restriction that limits the appreciation the owners receive at resale. When owners sell, they must sell to a qualified household or to the community land trust at a predetermined affordable price. When purchasing homes in MeadowView, buyers know the maximum appreciation percentage they may receive annually for the period that they own their homes. This model allows households priced out of expensive housing markets to purchase, benefiting from limited appreciation and housing stability, while ensuring that the investment to create affordable housing remains in the community in perpetuity.
MeadowView Phase II Units Under Contract
Phase I sold out, and all units in Phase II are under contract. There is currently a waiting list for Phase II units.
The MeadowView development is comprised of functional studio and two-bedroom condominiums, each with heated one-car garages. Studios have a laundry closet, a kitchen, full bathroom, and room for sleeping and living accommodations. Two-bedroom condos have a living and dining area with a deck, full kitchen, laundry closet with a half bath, and two bedrooms with two full baths on either an upper or lower level.
Located on a cul-de-sac adjacent to the Big Sky Community Park, national forest, and common open space, this property connects to maintained foot and Nordic ski trails. MeadowView is on the free shuttle route and is also proximal to the post office, the public golf course, Town Center, and Meadow Village.
Local full-time employed buyers must take an online homebuyer education class, live in the condos, and satisfy income and other qualifying guidelines. The project is eligible for Fannie Mae financing, which may offer buyers a lesser down payment than those offered with traditional loans. Down payment assistance may be available for qualifying buyers, and conditions exist to govern future sales.
