Affordable Purchase Scheme logo

The Affordable Purchase Scheme is designed to help bridge the gap between what you can afford to pay and the price of your new home.

Under the Affordable Purchase Scheme, Dublin City Council will make newly-built homes available to eligible buyers at a price lower than its open market value. In return, Dublin City Council will take an equity share in your home that covers the reduced price.

Dublin City Council have a number of developments in progress in the delivery of Affordable Homes at a variety of locations.

It should be noted that the Minimum Sale Price set by Dublin City Council is already a reduction from the Open Market Value of the home. Those interested in purchasing a home in this Scheme must be able to demonstrate that they can afford to pay the Minimum Sale Price set.

Below you will be able to see information on upcoming schemes, how to apply, and further information on the Affordable Purchase Scheme itself.
