University Gables is subject to buyer income limits imposed by the City of Buena Park Redevelopment Agency in exchange for granting the site and entitlements for the project. All buyers must, at the time of purchase, earn no more than 120% of Orange County median income, adjusted for household size ("Moderate Income"). The purchasers of the townhouses must earn no more than 80% of Orange County median income ("Low Income"). The so-called "Low Income" and "Moderate Income" limits are higher than might be expected, because of the relatively high median income in Orange County. All purchasers must use their University Gables home as their principal place of residence. Employees of the CSUF Housing Authority will not be eligible to purchase homes.
University Gables applicants are selected according to the CSU Fullerton Housing Authority priority schedule. There is currently no wait list, and applicants will be selected according to the level of interest at the time, and an applicants placement on the priority schedule. To see where you currently qualify, the priority schedule can be found in the FAQ

can be found in the Affordability
section of the Program
tab. To qualify for a lower income home, the applicants household income can not exceed 80% of the Orange County median Income.
