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. We work to create affordable homeownership opportunities so everyone can achieve strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.

Qualified applicants accepted into our program (homebuyers) help build their own homes alongside volunteers through sweat equity and pay an affordable mortgage

Am I eligible?
1. You must demonstrate a need for housing. This means that your current living conditions are substandard or crowded.
2. You must meet the income requirements below to qualify for an affordable mortgage through our organization.
3. You must be willing to partner with us and build your own home.
4. You must meet the definition of a first-time homebuyer.

Where Could My Home Be located?

We are unable to guarantee a specific location for your future home. If you are accepted into our homeownership program, you must be willing to purchase an available home within our service area. To learn more about our geographic service area, please consult the map and the comprehensive list of cities in our service area page.

What are the Income Requirements?

You must earn between $46,000 and the maximum income listed for your household size. These limits are based on the 2020 Los Angeles County gross (before taxes) annual income figures and are subject to change.
