Building Home ownership Dreams

At St. John Community Development Corporation (St. John CDC), we firmly believe that home ownership is not just a dream; it’s a tangible goal within reach. Our commitment to empowering the Overtown and greater Miami-Dade County communities is exemplified through our Home Buyer Education Workshops.

Home Ownership: St. John Phase 1

Our Success Story

St. John Village Homes I

St. John CDC takes pride in being a pioneer in our community. We developed “St. John Village Homes I,” the first new construction home ownership project in the area in fifty years. This 14-unit split-level townhome-style project offers modern amenities, including stainless steel energy-efficient appliances, central air/heat, spacious kitchens, indoor laundries, and French doors leading to landscaped outdoor patios.

Advantages of Home-ownership

A Foundation for Prosperity

At St. John CDC, we understand that home ownership is a significant milestone. It offers numerous advantages, including:

  1. A Sound Investment: Home ownership is usually a sound financial investment, providing long-term value and potential for growth.
  2. Stable Housing Costs: Owning a home stabilizes housing costs, providing predictability from year to year.
  3. Pride of Ownership: Home ownership instills a sense of pride and belonging within the community, fostering strong ties.
  4. Building Equity: Each mortgage payment builds equity, serving as a long-term savings plan.
  5. Tax Incentives: The tax benefits associated with home ownership can result in wealth-building income over time.
  6. Long-Term Financial Gains: Home ownership’s financial benefits extend into the long term, creating a secure foundation for your future.

St. John CDC plans to continue the new home construction home ownership program and provide training and counseling for tenants and community residents to take advantage of the opportunity to fulfill the “American Dream” of owning their own home.
