We’re super proud of NextHome Discovery associate Ashley Christie for her hard work in securing the exclusive listing agreement for 30+ townhome units being built directly across from Plant City High School in a community called Alexander Woods Townhomes!
Alexander Woods features two and three bedroom townhomes, a large playground, swimming pool, picnic area and a clubhouse perfect for hosting birthday parties and other social activities!
Alexander Woods is an affordable housing community built buy Florida Home Partnership offering down payment assistance for those who qualify.
From the Florida Home Partnership website: “Alexander Woods Townhomes is a beautifully landscaped and gated community located in Plant City, Florida. The townhome community is secluded in an enclave with easy access to schools, restaurants, theaters, banks, shopping centers and Interstate 4. Thanks to a partnership with Hillsborough County, down payment assistance is available for eligible buyers to purchase a new townhome, without the need to provide “sweat equity.”
Initially created for luxury living, the 80 unit townhouse complex was left partially completed after the housing market crash in 2007. With only 2 buildings (14 units) developed, the property was acquired by Hillsborough County’s Affordable Housing Services in 2010. As part of the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (N.S.P., a program under the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 which addresses abandoned and foreclosed properties in an effort to remove blight from neighborhoods; and invest funds in the community), Florida Home Partnership was awarded the Request for Proposals (RFP), on March 1, 2012, and took over ownership October 2012 to complete the development of Alexander Woods. With support from Wells Fargo’s Priority Markets Initiative, FHP was awarded a $100,000 donation in 2013 which has helped to accelerate the building of the community.
As the new developer, Florida Home Partnership prepped and sold the existing fourteen units and is well under-way of building and selling the remaining townhomes which were re-designed for greater affordability by incorporating green building and energy efficiency and to increase optimal space usage. With prices starting from $115,000, the townhomes offer 2 to 3 bedrooms with 2 to 2.5 bathrooms and can comfortably accommodate individuals and small families. In addition to establishing and managing a fully functional home owners association with residents, FHP has built a beautiful community clubhouse, swimming pool, playground and picnic areas on the 6.58 acre community.
You may not need to be a first-time home buyer to qualify to purchase one of these homes! Minimum down payment for eligible buyers ranges between $1000 – $2,000 and is calculated based on household need.”
