Sagetree Terrace

Sagetree Terrace is getting its finishing touches and will soon be ready to move-in its first residents! This building is a HUD 202 and Tax Credit community for older adults (62+) with 64 one-bedroom units and a two-bedroom manager’s unit.  All units will feature a full kitchen and living room and a bathroom with built-in safety features.  

Individual apartments consist of a full kitchen, living/dining area, bedroom and full bath. Energy star appliances will be used wherever possible throughout the apartment.   Additionally, there is a pull cord system within each unit; one near the bed and the other strategically located in the bathroom.

There will be a community room with a kitchen. Community space will also include an exercise room, computer room, library, arts and crafts room, trash rooms equipped with trash chutes on each floor, and a central laundry room. There will be a covered patio area with tables and chairs off the community room where residents can have BBQs, parties, and socialize with one another and their guests.

Sagetree Terrace will be equipped with cameras for monitoring all entry points at the front, rear and sides of the building. This helps to provide a more secure environment for the residents. They’re able to retrieve their mail, discard their trash, do their laundry, attend social events and visit with their family members without leaving the building.

Sagetree Terrace will be a smoke-free community.

What type of housing is Sagetree Terrace? Is it low-income housing?

Sagetree Terrace is a subsidized housing community for seniors age 62 and older. The term “subsidized housing” means that the rent is based on income. A resident of the community pays approximately 30% of their net income as rent.

Who pays the remainder of the rent?

The remainder of the rent is paid in the form of a subsidy. If a resident qualifies for a subsidy, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), a U.S. government agency, will pay the remainder of the rent.

How is rent calculated?

Resident rent is based on approximately 30% of income. A good estimate of your rent would be to take 30% of your net annual income and divide it by 12 months. This will give you an estimate of what your monthly rent could be.

What does the rent include?

Monthly rental of the apartment, as well as heat, water, and an electric allowance. An electric allowance is a certain amount taken off of the resident’s rent payment meant to help the resident pay the electric bill. The allowance amount is based on average usage for the apartment and may change annually. Residents will still receive an electric bill, but the allowance is intended to help pay for it. Residents may still be eligible for energy assistance from the state.

Is there a lease?

Yes, there is a one-year lease, but we understand the necessity of unanticipated move-outs.

What is the Security Deposit?

Do you allow pets?

What is the Pet Deposit?
