About Our Houses

Beginning with an End in Mind

Habitat builds affordable single family detached homes. We have historically built homes in areas where we can build groups of 5 or more homes in a single neighborhood. Habitat concentrates on both transforming large tracts (18 + acres) of vacant and abandoned land into thriving neighborhoods, as well as smaller infill projects.

Building with Durability and Environment in Mind

Our homes are built with our partner families in mind. We procure quality building materials and ensure that we build quality homes that will last several lifetimes. Habitat homes built in San Antonio are extremely energy efficient and will be affordable for our families to maintain. All homes are built according to LEED Level 1, Energy Star and CPS Smart Energy standards.

Selling with Families Needs in Mind

We build 3 bedroom homes (1,060 square foot) and 4 bedroom homes (1,180 square foot). Homes cost us approximately $80,000 to build. Homes are financed with a 20 year, zero percent interest loan. Payments from our families are approximately $600 per month (including taxes and insurance). Homes are sold to the families for less than cost – between $75,000 – $80,000.
