Projects > Ownership


Home ownership remains the American Dream — and the goal of most Northbay families as it's their single biggest step toward building wealth over a lifetime.

Northbay Family Homes assisted many homebuilders in constructing products that are available for ownership by workforce families. Their depth of knowledge and industry contacts allowed them to guide private-sector homebuilders in producing affordable homes faster, more efficiently, and with sufficient return on investment. They assisted in the creation of both single-family and attached housing with projects including from two homes to 200 or more on a single site.
