Housing Buyback Program
By 2016 St. Thomas is required to purchase 30 student rental houses in Macalester-Groveland and Merriam Park, to participate in renovating them, and to sell them to owner occupants.
To accomplish this goal, St. Thomas has engaged an Edina Realty agent, Tanya Hietpas (651-329-0371) to execute the program for the university. Buyers must agree to the terms of a restrictive covenant, which requires owner-occupancy and excludes full-time students from occupancy unless they reside with a parent or grandparent. Read the covenant.
For more information about the program, to express interest in purchasing a property or selling a rental property, please contact Tanya or John Hershey at 651-962-6123 or firstname.lastname@example.org
