First Look

Launched in 2014, First Look is RIHousing’s Real Estate Owned purchase program for non-profit partners. The automated system provides non-profit purchasers with the advantage of taking a “first look” at our available properties before they are marketed to the public.

Program Features

  • Online access to newly listed First Look properties
  • An established minimum offer price
  • A timeframe for bid submission, offer review, and closing
  • A competitive, transparent electronic bid process

How it Works

Properties available for purchase will remain open for bid to nonprofit partners who register with RIHousing for a total of 21 days. After the 21-day period, the property will be placed on the open market. Our goal is to provide a transparent, equitable streamlined process to return RIHousing real estate owned properties to productive use and improve our neighborhoods.
