Why partner with us?
South Metro Housing Options (SHMO) offers valuable services that are integral to any Littleton development project. Providing these services through partnerships with both non-profit and for-profit entities helps SHMO accomplish its mission and contributes to the community as a whole. South Metro Housing Options can serve affordable housing developers by offering access to financing and partnerships. SMHO has cooperative relationships with many lenders and community service providers. Bonds can be issued on behalf of non-profit and for-profit affordable housing developers. These bonds can be used to finance new construction as well as the rehabilitation of existing housing developments. SMHO is eligible for property tax exemption from Colorado real estate taxes. This allows the leveraging of greater debt when taxes are removed from the operating cost.
