A Better-Neighborhoods renovation property.

 

 

For nearly 50 years, Better Neighborhoods Inc. has improved the quality of life in our community by rehabilitating and building homes in Schenectady. Our goal is to increase homeownership in Schenectady.

We offer programs for both first-time homebuyers and long-time residents.

  • Homebuyer Education and Pre-Purchase Counseling - We can help you learn how to buy a home. Our workshop series covers topics including home inspections, financing options and more. Clients also receive no cost, one-on-one counseling on budgeting, savings, credit repair and home purchase. Our goal is to help clients buy an affordable home.

  • Home Renovation - Since 1966, we have renovated hundreds of Schenectady homes. Grant financing allows us to make extensive repairs while keeping the homes affordable for eligible homebuyers.

  • Foreclosure Prevention - BNI house counselors are skilled in helping you navigate foreclosure proceedings. We will help you understand your options, what steps you can take, and tell you the most likely outcome. We have experience working with banks and the courts on solving foreclosure problems and we’ll do our best to make sure you can actively manage this process. Call us today- or contact us- so we can help you through this difficult process.

  • New Home Building - BNI also builds new homes. Check out our new homes currently for sale.

  • Tool Library - We maintain a Community Tool Library that residents can utilize for various home improvement projects.

  • HUD approved Housing Counseling Agency since 1972 - Serving Schenectady County and residents of surrounding counties.

  • NYS Neighborhood Preservation Company - Serving most Schenectady neighborhoods.

  • Local Homeownership Center - We help clients to save for and purchase a home. Grant funds available for moderate and low income buyers AND for first-time home buyers.

  • 501(c)(3) Not-for-Profit Corporation - Our role is to assist homeownership in our community. We were founded in 1966 and have repaired and built hundreds of homes.

  • BNI can meet your needs if you have an impairment, disability or language barrier. - Please call the office with any questions and we will do our best to accommodate you.”
