The city of Renton is a fast-growing suburb that is an ideal location to raise a family. Renton’s high-performing schools and high-quality medical care make it attractive to families. This project will add much-needed affordable housing stock to this part of King County. The homes slated will be some of the only, new, permanent, single-family housing solutions suitable and affordable for low-income families.
As with the more than 390 new, low-income homeowners Habitat has served in King County, these new Renton residents will receive financing from Habitat to ensure their housing costs are affordable. The property will be placed in a Land Trust, ensuring permanent affordability for future generations and families.
In an area with an average home price of well over $461,000 and rising, these homes will ensure that low-income, hard-working people can continue to have a place to build their lives in King County.
