Buyer Success Stories

We are successful together.

NCST helps hundreds of communities by serving as the intermediary for property sales – more than $1.5 billion to-date – that transform and stabilize neighborhoods. Every one of these dollars is a direct investment in the strength of a community. Thanks to our local housing providers (buyers), approximately 25,000 properties have been returned to the community for rehab and affordable housing opportunities.

We hope you’ll take a few minutes to read these Buyer Success Stories and learn more about the important work accomplished.
