Over the years, Mountainlands has been an advocate for affordable rentals, and we have a variety of properties reserved for low-income residents. These properties are in high demand, and getting on the waitlist is typically the only way to secure an affordable rental.Show Me
Whether you have a house, condo, or just a spare room available, we can help you get started as a landlord. Standard lease terms are usually for six months or a year, but seasonal workers in Park City often need a room for just a few months. Your rental property may be just what a new family or local needs to feel at home in our town. Click the link below for sample leases, roommate agreements, and a listing engine.List Your Rental
The Mutual Self Help program lets low-income participants achieve the dream of homeownership through “sweat equity.” Six to twelve participants work together under a construction supervisor to build approximately 65% of their homes. The program takes about 5 to 8 months. The participants complete their homes simultaneously; no one moves in until all the homes in the group are completed.
With this sweat equity program, the labor acts as the down payment, and reduces the price of the home by as much as 20%. Qualified families are eligible to receive a reduced interest rate that will keep monthly mortgage payments affordable, often times lower than what they are now paying for rent.
To participate in the Mutual Self-Help program, you must be willing to set aside your spare time for approximately 5 to 8 months. Participants are required to contribute a minimum of 30 hours per week. Family and friends that are willing to work on the participant’s behalf can contribute up to 15 of the required hours per week.
There is no cost to participate in the program. You will need to purchase a tool belt and construction hand tools.
