40b Affordable Homes


Sawyer Hill EcoVillage was developed as part of the Chapter 40B program, a state program designed to help address the shortage of affordable housing in Massachusetts by encouraging new developments to offer at least 20-25% of the homes at prices affordable by low- and moderate-income buyers.

40B Home Prices

17 of our 68 units are sold at reduced prices set by state guidelines, which are designed to make the homes affordable to families making 70% of the area median income.

  • $138,000 for a 1 bedroom home
  • $154,470 for a 2 bedroom home
  • $173,000 for a 3 bedroom home

40B homes for income-qualified buyers are still available. These homes are available on a first come first served basis to those who qualify, so apply now.
