$600,000 Homes Built for CBP Personnel in Small Arizona Town

A cluster of yellow, blue and salmon-colored homes was built for CBP employees in a small former mining community in Ajo, Ariz. at a cost of roughly $600,000 apiece, The Arizona Republic reports.

The price tag includes the cost to plan and build each of 21 two- and three-bedroom houses that are intended to attract CBP employees to the town.

Similar-sized homes in Ajo are selling for less than $100,000, the Republic reported.

The rental homes are about 11 miles from a Border Patrol station in Why, Ariz.

It’s unclear how much the federal government is charging for rent, but officials said rent is at market rates, the Republic wrote.
