Below Market Rate (BMR) Ownership Housing

A Below-Market-Rate (BMR) home is a home that is priced to be affordable to households that are low to moderate income. Usually, the BMR price is lower than the prices of similar homes that are being sold on the open market. BMR owners must occupy the home as their primary residence and cannot rent the home.
