Why Purchase a Home with Habitat?
The high cost of housing in the San Gabriel Valley means that homeownership is out of reach for many families. With the support of community partners, donors, and volunteers, SGV Habitat constructs new homes and renovates existing homes alongside Habitat Partner Homebuyers. We work to create affordable homeownership opportunities so everyone can achieve strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.
San Gabriel Valley Habitat for Humanity sells affordable homes to low-income, first-time homeowners to help them achieve the American dream of homeownership. Approved homeowners, at time of purchase, qualify for a monthly housing payment (mortgage, property tax, insurance, HOA fee—if applicable) equal to 33% of their gross monthly income.

- You must be willing to partner with us by completing homebuyer education and investing sweat equity hours building your future Habitat home and the homes of other Habitat Homebuyers.
- You must meet the definition of a first-time homebuyer.
