Sellars Company Commits to Helping Employees Purchase their First Homes

Sellars Company in partnership with Havenwoods Business Improvement District and Associated Bank has signed on to our Employer Assisted Homeownership. The Employer Assisted Homeownership Program provides down payment assistance to new home buyers that purchase their home in the Havenwoods Community. Down payment assistance grants are funded by the Havenwoods BID and program support is provided by Associated Bank.

This is an excellent opportunity for Sellars employees of all levels and incomes to begin building their generational wealth. According to the National Association of Realtors, the primary method in which the middle class creates wealth is through equity in homeownership. Middle-income Homeowners Gained More Than $120,000 in Wealth Over the Past Decade From Home Appreciation, According to NAR:

  • Low-income homeowners built $98,900 and upper-income households built $150,800 from
    home appreciation since 2012.
  • African-American homeowners experienced the smallest wealth gains among all racial/ethnic groups but were able to accumulate more than $115,000 in wealth in the last decade.
  • Homeowners who benefited from home price appreciation in the last decade were able to drop their debt by 21%.
