Thank you for your interest in buying a home from Atlanta Land Trust!
GET STARTED IN 3 EASY STEPS:
- Determine if you qualify for a home through ALT
- Understand how a CLT works
- Join our mailing list and attend a Community Information Session
1. Determine if You Qualify for a Home Through ALT
As is true with any home purchase, buyers must meet minimum qualifying requirements to purchase a property through a CLT. Every individual purchase is unique and has different qualifying standards, but generally, buyers should be able to answer “YES” to each of these statements:
- Is your household income at or below 120% AMI (area median income)? View income qualification criteria.
- Are you employed, disabled or a senior citizen?
- Do you have a minimum credit score of 620?
2. Understand How a CLT Works
There are unique dynamics of a CLT. Your understanding of the process and expectations is important to the success. Review how a CLT works for an overview and then attend an information session for more details.
3. Join Our Mailing List and Attend an ALT Information Session
Attend one of our monthly Community Information Sessions to learn more about home buying options and determine if home ownership through ALT is right for you.

Down Payment Assistance
In many cases, down payment funds are a major obstacle, especially for first time homeowners. Based on our experience, we recommend the following organizations.

We invite you to preview our available listings, though ALT homes are only available to qualified buyers who have attended a Community Information Session explaining how an ALT home purchase works.

The Atlanta Land Trust is building both single-family and townhomes. We have three townhome communities under development: The Avenue at Oakland City, The Trust at East Lake and The Trust at Oakland City. Learn more about each of these communities below.
The Avenue at Oakland City
Atlanta Land Trust owns a 1.8-acre vacant parcel of land on Tucker Avenue in the Oakland City neighborhood, a historically Black community which has endured decades of disinvestment and predatory financial schemes. Due to recent public redevelopment investments in the Atlanta BeltLine and Fort McPherson, Oakland City is suddenly one of Atlanta’s most rapidly escalating local housing markets. In the summer of 2020, ALT selected Intown Builders as co-developer of this 36-unit project, which will include townhomes in five, three-story buildings. Twenty-nine of the units will be affordable to buyers at 80% of AMI and up to 100% of AMI, and the remaining seven will be sold at market rate. The units will range from 1,100 to 1,500 square feet. ALT began construction on phase 1 in 2022 with an estimated completion date for phase 1 in early 2024.
The Trust at East Lake
In 1995, the East Lake Foundation was established to help transform the East Lake neighborhood and redevelop a public housing project, East Lake Meadows, into a mixed-income community. The success of this initiative has served as a national model for holistic community revitalization, but has also resulted in gentrification and displacement of long-time, low-income residents. In 2019, Atlanta Land Trust was approached by the CF Foundation regarding the development of this site to create affordable homeownership opportunities for those renting at The Villages of East Lake as well as low-income legacy residents from the broader community. ALT’s project sits on a 1.963-acre site on Fayetteville Road and will feature 40 one-, two-, and three-bedroom units ranging from 760 square feet to 1,500 square feet, 50% of which will be affordable at 80% of AMI and the balance of which will be affordable for families with household incomes up to 120% of AMI. ALT will prioritize the sale of these homes to current residents of The Villages of East Lake. Site work began in early 2023 with phase 1 of construction anticipated by year-end and phase 1 completion slated for fall 2024.
The Trust at Oakland City
This 3.5-acre site will feature mixed-income housing of 42 units, half of which will be affordable and the other half of which will sell at market rate. The one-, two-, and three-bedroom units will range from 640 square feet to 1,360 square feet. Price points for the affordable homes will target households at or below 60% and 80% of AMI. Atlanta Land Trust is partnering with Cityscape Housing for the development of the site and construction of the homes. The property is located within 100 yards of the Atlanta BeltLine Westside Trail and less than one mile to the West End MARTA Station. Construction on phase 1 is anticipated to commence in early 2024.
