I realized today that I may have a few friends who are in the same situation as we have been as far as housing and needing a safe, affordable home that they can call their own.
A lot of people think they don't qualify because they aren't needy enough. You'd be surprised! You just have to be a first time homebuyer, have good (not necessarily perfect) credit and good rental history, be in need of better housing than you currently live (in other words, a Habitat house would be a step up for you, whether its size, safety, or affordability), and you have to qualify with your income. Each project Habitat builds has different income qualifications based on what the city sets up. You also have to be willing to work 250 sweat equity (volunteer) hours per adult in your family.
Please check out San Diego Habitat for Humanity's website for the specific details of the Oceanside project. There are still three homes that do not have families yet. Habitat is looking for families to sell those homes to. You could be our next door neighbor!
I can give you more information if you'd like it. Email me any questions you have. I'd love to talk to you and encourage you in anyway.
Habitat for Humanity has changed our lives and we are so excited to share it with anyone who wants to know more and have the same opportunity we have.
