The selection process includes a review of your finances and credit, employment history, residency, and other qualifications.

If you have applied for a Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco home in the past, you will need to submit a new application for this home. All applications that are received on time and filled out completely will be entered into a lottery. Please only submit one application per household; multiple applications are reason for immediate disqualification. The lottery ONLY determines the order in which your application will be reviewed. It does not guarantee you a home.

  • Must have history of reliable payments on credit report
  • Must be willing to complete 250 hours of sweat equity
  • Applicants must be first time homebuyers and have not owned a residential property in the last 3 years
  • Applicants must have a total debt-to-income ratio below 45%
  • Must be permanent residents or US Citizens
  • Must live in incorporated Redwood City at the time of application
  • Must be a household of 3-5 to qualify

FAQs

WHAT IF I DON’T MEET ALL THE ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA?

We encourage you to apply and let us determine your eligibility.

WHAT IS “SWEAT EQUITY”?

Habitat GSF requires all potential buyers to complete sweat equity (up to 500 volunteer hours). The requirement for 3496 Rolison Road, a previously built home, is 250 hours.

You can get help with your sweat equity by having friends and family volunteer with you.  

Sweat equity is not designed to be a barrier; we work with each family to ensure they finish their sweat equity in a safe and timely manner.  

WHAT IS THE HOA RESPONSIBLE FOR?

Maintaining and repairing common areas (homeowners are responsible for repairs in their units).

WILL I NEED TO PAY MY OWN UTILITIES OR WILL THE HOA PAY THEM?

You are responsible for paying for your own utilities.

ARE THERE MONTHLY HOA FEES?

Yes, fees are subject to change annually.

IS THERE PARKING?

Yes, parking is included.

HOW DOES THE LOTTERY WORK?

Applicants will be given a unique ID number via email 

On March 14, 2022 we will conduct the lottery. Attendance is optional.

Applicants’ IDs will be randomized and given a spot in the lottery starting with #1. 

We will invite applicants to complete the full application based on  lottery number. For example, the applicant who gets lottery #1 will be the first person invited to complete the full application. We will go down our list in lottery order until the unit is filled by a qualified buyer.

Lottery results will be posted on our website and applicants will be notified of their number by email. 

WHAT IS CONSIDERED AN ASSET?

Checking and savings accounts 

Retirement accounts/401(k)s  

Stocks and bonds 

Property  

ARE PETS ALLOWED?

Yes, limits may apply.

DO I HAVE TO HAVE A CO-APPLICANT TO APPLY?

WILL HABITAT GREATER SAN FRANCISCO BE MY LANDLORD?

No, Habitat GSF is only the lender as this is not a rental unit.  

IF I APPLIED FOR A HABITAT GSF HOME IN THE PAST AND I WAS NOT SELECTED, DO I NEED TO REAPPLY ?

Yes, you will need to reapply. Please note, Habitat GSF does a new, random lottery each time new homes become available.
