START HERE! WHAT IS THE PROCESS AND/OR WHAT STEPS DO I TAKE?
Our Lease/Option to Homeownership Program has a simple three step process for you to make one of the homes yours!
Step 1: Visit the home in person.
If you want to own your own home and are considering making one of our houses a home for you and your family, don’t you think it would be a good idea to visit the house in person? After looking at the photos and watching the video walkthrough on our website, go stop by the property and walk around the outside, look through the windows, walk or drive the neighborhood and talk to neighbors! If you are going to be living in your new home for years to come, you want to make sure it is the right fit and feels like home!
Step 2: Complete the application
Go to the “Apply Now” tab on the website (https://avidpgh.com/application.html) and submit your application, ensuring to READ & FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS.
If you would prefer to complete a paper application, you can find them in the info box at any of the houses, or at our office, 1 Forestwood Dr. Ste 101 Pittsburgh, PA 15237 between 8:30 AM and 2:30 PM or by appointment (for appointments you can submit a request through our contact page, here: https://avidpgh.com/contact.html)
Step 3: Meet us at the home!
After we have reached out to you and notified you of your approval, you will schedule a convenient time to meet us at the home or homes you are interested in. At this meeting, you will take as much or as little time as you need to decide if this is the home for you. Once you decide on your new home, we will complete the paperwork, you will switch utilities, and you will get the lockbox code to move into your new home!
