Columbia is a hot spot for home sales

[Columbia Spy file photo]


With regard to the homebuyers program for eligible low- to moderate-income first-time homebuyers, LHOP's Ray D'Agostino says the borough agreed to provide a match to LHOP's $5,000 closing cost assistance no-interest loan, which raises the figure to $10,000. In the program's first 10 months, there were 15 new homeowners in the borough, he says. The homeowner rehab program is just getting underway, so he does not have any data for that program.

    1. Not ALL in Columbia is "positive," some of this is simply the truth which people view as negative. However, for the record there have been numerous "positive" articles that the Spy has posted. Most recently, the "Art Printing" article which took several hours of work from interview to completion. I'm busy now, but I will count all of the positive articles and print the total.

  7. Back in the 70es the same thing happened. Money was given toward buying a house to people that can’t afford to own a property. If they can’t afford to purchase the property how will they pay the taxas and do the maintenance?

  8. This is all bull... I'm sick of my insanely high taxes going for crap in this town. Crappy school, highly overpaid positions not needed, fixing up a park that will be vandalized by the little hooligan's in this town, bulletproof glass. What's your comment on this borough & school councils?
