PRIDE Program

PRIDE is NRHA's recently established purchase-renovation program. As an older city, Norfolk has a much greater stock of existing houses than new ones. PRIDE is a program that provides additional housing options to our clients through the renovation of existing houses in many of Norfolk’s traditional neighborhoods. When NRHA purchases an existing property, we perform a careful evaluation to determine whether the house can be renovated to provide a home similar in quality and amenities to new construction. 

Why Buy PRIDE?

Unlike the superficial “new paint and carpet” renovations that older homes sometimes are given, houses chosen to be renovated under NRHA’s PRIDE program receive an extensive renovation intended to improve safety, reliability, energy efficiency and comfort. Typical work includes the following:
- All new kitchens and bathrooms to meet modern needs
- All new electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems
- Other energy efficiency upgrades, such as increased insulation and window replacement
- New exterior and interior finishes
- Landscaping and other site improvements

Through our PRIDE program, NRHA is indeed proud to offer these homes that combine the character and quality of historic construction with the reliability and amenities of new construction.
