The first step in the Habitat homeownership application process is viewing our virtual orientation — you’ll learn about Habitat, our homeownership program, and how to apply to purchase your very own home.

We are currently selling six homes located on Harding Avenue and W. 18th Street in National City to qualified buyers. Applicants who are selected will be invited to partner with Habitat to help build and buy their home at an affordable price that will not be greater than 30% of the buyer’s household income. The houses for sale are attached row townhomes with garages. They each have three bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and are between 1,100 and 1,300 square feet in size.
