The city of Huntington Beach has a wonderful affordable Inclusionary Housing program aimed at helping middle to low income residents purchase a home in the Huntington Beach community. This is a city wide program with designated communities that participate in this program. Not applicants will be approved so it's important to check with city of Huntington Beach website for the complete list of guidelines and criteria. One of the neat features of the program is the calculations are based on the affordability rather than current market values. One of the basic requirements is the total household income must not exceed certain limits in order to qualify. The city is very strict in looking at all candidates application and approves home buyers who truly qualify for this housing program. The first step is to find properties that are included in this program. We have included a link below that shows all the current available inclusionary homes for sale. Then you submit an offer on the property with your Realtor. Once your offer has been accepted by the seller you will be asked to submit several forms to the city. Keep in mind that you must be buying the home to live in and can not be treated as a rental property. For additional information on this housing program we encourage you to visit the Huntington Beach government website for more detailed information.
