Homes for Sale

restored house in Guilford County

With homes available in the Ole Asheboro neighborhood in Greensboro and the Southside neighborhood in High Point, CHS promotes home ownership opportunities for low-income families while helping to stabilize neighborhoods.  We are building NEW homes on vacant lots and rehabilitating existing homes in these three neighborhoods.  Home ownership helps families create real assets, as well as increasing the value of surrounding properties thereby “lifting up” the whole neighborhood.

Our expectations for quality are high – We are careful in our work to make sure that homes are well-built, meet high energy-efficiency standards, and have excellent systems and appliances. We want our homes to not only have an affordable purchase price, but also remain affordable after the new owners get the keys.

  • All plumbing, electrical, roofing, and floor systems are built or updated to building code
  • All work meets System Vision and Energy Star Program standards, lowering utility expenses
  • All work is performed by high quality professionals, including CHS staff and verified, trustworthy subcontractors

Our homes are available to qualified home buyers with limited incomes. CHS is a member of NCHFA’s Community Partners Loan Pool Program, enabling us to provide additional financial options to the home buyer. For information about our homes for sale and how to begin building wealth for your family through home ownership, contact our partner organization, Housing Consultants Group, Sofia Crisp, (336)553-0946.

Operation Inasmuch

Paint The Town

Paint the Town is an annual one-day Community event that targets a neighborhood in need of support. CHS partners with local businesses, corporations and faith organizations to do exterior repairs, painting, and landscaping for one neighborhood. This year's event will take place on Saturday, September 22. Paint the Town is designed not only to assist low-income homeowners with the preservation of their homes, but also to lift the neighborhood by the aggregate effect. Repairs completed during Paint the Town often allow families to keep their homeowner’s insurance in place and thus decrease their risk of foreclosure. Eligible homeowners are elderly or disabled individuals living on a fixed income who are unable to do the repairs themselves.

Ramp-a-thon gathering

Ramp-a-thon

Ramp-a-Thon builds wheelchair ramps and restores access to families with mobility needs. Ramps built during this annual week-long event improve the quality of life for people who desire to live independently and restores hope and dignity to these homeowners. Ramp-a-Thon helps both elderly homeowners, as well as individuals of any age who have limited mobility.
Ramp-a-Thon is a partnership between CHS and the Catholic HEART Work Camp (hosted by St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church) who provide the volunteer labor. More than 80 high school and college students give a week of their summer to serve building the ramps. Ramp-a-Thon is funded through the generous support of local businesses, faith groups and civic organizations.
