Housing Eagle County
January 17, 2024 - Homeownership in the heart of Eagle County is within reach. The Eagle County Housing and Development Authority (ECHDA) is excited to announce the upcoming availability of 43 price-capped deed-restricted units in Haymeadow Phase 1, located in Eagle, with two-bedroom, two-bath condominiums starting at $400,508.
“Helping our local workforce access the dream of home ownership is what motivates our team every day,” said Kim Bell Williams, Eagle County Housing Director. “Haymeadow represents a rare opportunity for homebuyers to purchase new construction at prices well below the market average, thanks to a subsidy from the ECHDA Board of Directors. The last time our community had this opportunity was in 2006 with the Miller Ranch development.”
