The results are in for the Sea Haven Below Market Rate Housing Lottery!
As a result of the City Council’s direction and the City Manager's advocacy in providing housing that is affordable for the residents and workers in Marina, the City was able to hold its first ever below market rate housing lottery for 210 homes in the Sea Haven community on October 16, 2023. The Sea Haven team has also done their part to make sure that quality homes are available for applicants of this program. They will be working hard over the next few years with all applicants to move toward being new home owners! thank you to everyone that has submitted their interests
Thank you to all the applicants for making this process so successful. The application window to enter the lottery was September 8, 2023 to October 8, 2023. In this lottery window a total of 776 applications were received. If you missed this window, you can still get your name on the interest list and will have the opportunity to purchase a unit once the lottery rank order list is exhausted. Visit the City's BMR Homeownership webpage to find out how to get your name on the interest list.
Two lotteries have been held to establish the rank order in which homes will be sold. The first lottery included applicants that were eligible for Preference Points because they lived and/or worked in Marina. The second lottery included applications that were not eligible for Preference Points.
The rank orders established by the lotteries will be used as the order in which purchasers will be offered the opportunity to purchase a unit.
The Rank Orders as a result of the lottery can be viewed on the City's BMR Homeownership webpage under the Sea Haven Below Market Rate Unit Program section. Applicants should be ready to engage with the team when contacted.
Congrats to those in the lottery participants!
