Homeownership

In an area with an average home price over $815,000 and rising, the sales price on these homes will range from $350,000 to $500,000. As with the more than 390 new, low-income homeowners Habitat has served in King County, these new residents will receive financing with help from Habitat to ensure their housing costs are affordable. The property will be placed in a land trust providing permanent affordability for future generations and ensure that working individuals and families continue to have a place to build lives in Seattle.
