About Springfield Community Land Trust
The Springfield Community Land Trust sells homes to people who are credit-worthy with low to moderate incomes. While buyers own the house, the land beneath their home belongs to the community land trust and the homeowner holds rights to the land by paying a small fee through a leasehold agreement.
