How CLT Works

Thistle acquires and builds affordable homes and limits the sales price on these homes. Thistle, through the CLT, owns the land, and qualified people buy the homes. Thistle and the homebuyer sign a 99-year renewable land lease which allows the buyer to use the land.  Click for detailed CLT homeownership information.

For information on permanently affordable homes for sale in the City of Boulder, visit The Department of Housing and Human Services. 

Available Homes

We currently have no homes for sale. Please check back with us periodically.
