The Habitat for Humanity of Española and Los Alamos is looking for its next homeowner.
Yvonne Maestas, director of operations, said the newest home will be located on N.M. 30, which runs through the Santa Clara Pueblo.
This will be the eighth Habitat for Humanity house, Maestas said.
The seventh home was able to be occupied just before the holidays.
Habitat for Humanity offered the new home owner a great gift.
“The wonderful thing about Habitat is we build homes with families or individuals and that’s certainly nothing like a typical home construction and that is part of why the home is so inexpensive,” Maestas said.
“It’s so exciting to see the homeowners’ mortgage be typically half of what they paid in rent. They paying back exactly what it cost to build the home. It’s a 30 year mortgage so the payments are always affordable,” she said.
Other Habitat for Humanity Houses are cropping up throughout the state.
For instance, eighth Habitat for Humanity home in San Juan County was dedicated Saturday morning to the family who will soon be calling it home.
Beverly Charley and her daughter, Kiara,9, will move into the new home on Yucca Avenue once the city issues the location an occupancy permit, which was expected to be finalized this week.
