    Franklin to sell affordable housing unit

    Franklin is offering an affordable housing opportunity at 47 Leanne Way in the Franklin Heights development off Lincoln Street. The unit, which is listed for $196,600 and includes two bedrooms, 2½ bathrooms, central air conditioning, a gas fireplace, and a one-car garage, will be sold to a first-time homebuyer whose assets do not exceed $75,000 and whose annual income does not exceed Local Initiative Program guidelines. Based on the number of bedrooms, preference will likely be given to households with two, three, or four members. The property is subject to a deed restriction limiting the amount for which the home can be resold or refinanced and requiring that it be resold as an affordable unit.
