Affordable Home Ownership
In support of the community’s goals, the master plan for Mueller includes a commitment to diversity, providing a wide range of home types and prices. Mueller‘s affordable homes program was created specifically to include homes for families earning less than the area’s median income that might not otherwise be able to afford a home in central Austin. Catellus, the City of Austin, Mueller homebuilders and apartment developers work together to provide a portion of all the homes at Mueller at a purchase or rental price structured for these households through Mueller’s affordable homes program.
The affordable homes program will include at minimum 25 percent of Mueller’s for-sale and for-rent residences at the project’s completion. These houses, condominiums and apartments are interspersed throughout the community and are essentially indistinguishable, having design and construction standards consistent with all homes built at Mueller.
Prospective homebuyers and apartment renters interested in the program work with Mueller builders and apartment developers going through an application process to income-qualify and meet eligibility criteria modeled after the City of Austin’s S.M.A.R.T. Housing Program. The earnings benchmark to purchase a home is 80% or less of the area’s Median Family Income (MFI) and is 60% or less of the area’s MFI for apartment rental in Mueller’s affordable homes program.
