Shared Equity Program

Salt Lake City’s Community Shared Equity Program provides low to moderate income families the opportunity to become homeowners.

By placing city-owned property into the Shared Equity Program, monthly mortgage payments can be kept affordable. Home buyers purchase the home and the improvements. From there, they lease the land the home is built on from the City.  This allows Salt Lake City to preserve the homes affordability into the future while still allowing the buyer to build equity in their home.

This model can be used to protect the affordability of both single-family homes and rental units. Salt Lake City’s plan is to use the ground lease option as an effective, enforceable, and durable mechanism to ensure future generations of low to moderate income households have access to affordable housing.
