About Our Houses

Habitat builds 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.

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 are approximately $600 per month (including taxes and insurance). Homes are sold to the families for less than cost – for between $75,000 – $80,000.

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.
