Making Home Ownership Affordable in San Bernardino
City of San Bernardino Partners with Neighborhood Partnership Housing Services, Inc. to Create Affordable Housing Opportunities in San Bernardino
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (Jan. 15, 2019) – The City of San Bernardino has partnered with the Neighborhood Partnership Housing Services’, Inc. (NPHS) office in Rancho Cucamonga to transform once blighted and vacant lots into new infill housing for first-time homeowners, making home ownership more accessible and increasing the quality of life in San Bernardino. With federal grant funding from the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) of $650,000 approved by City Council in 2017, the City partnered with NPHS to build three affordable homes across San Bernardino.
“This project with Neighborhood Partnership Housing Services exemplifies our dedication to improving the quality of life and spurring economic growth in San Bernardino,” said Mayor of San Bernardino John Valdivia. “Our goal is to foster a community where people can not only work and study but to create a safe place they are able to call home.”
The project encourages people to invest in home ownership in San Bernardino, instead of choosing to rent. Income requirements make this a unique home purchase opportunity for people with limited income. Additionally, HOME is providing a second mortgage that does not require monthly payments and is forgiven if the family occupies the house for 15 years.
“This partnership with the City of San Bernardino is a great match for our vision of a future where all families are financially prosperous and live in healthy and economically vibrant communities,” said Neighborhood Partnership Housing Service’s Vice President of Social Enterprise and Innovations Jenny Ortiz, EMBA. “This project has garnered a higher amount of interest from the public than typical projects, which goes to show that people are looking to establish a life in San Bernardino.”
Of the three homes built, one was sold and is already occupied on Genevieve Street, another home is in escrow on W. Union Street, and an offer was accepted for a home on W. 8th Street.
The manufactured homes are three-bedroom, two-bathroom, and average a size of 1,480 square feet. Amenities include a full set of appliances, an attached garage, as well as a roof solar panel system.

Progressive Real Estate Partners Arranges $6.5M Sale of Land for New Home Development in Upland, CA
COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE TRANSACTION ALERT
Progressive Real Estate Partners, the leading SoCal Inland Empire retail real estate brokerage firm, announced the sale of 4.84 acres of land at 1400 E. Arrow Highway in Upland, CA for $6.5M in an all-cash transaction.
The Landmark Company, which is a SoCal based real estate investment and development company, purchased the land and has partnered with Century Communities to build the Rose Glen residential development.
The neighborhood will feature 64 two-story single family detached homes with two-car attached garages for an overall density of 13.2 dwelling units per acre. The homes are approximately 1,540 square-feet and will feature a Spanish Colonial and Santa Barbara architectural style. Additional neighborhood features will include open space to accommodate play areas, picnic tables, fitness stations and barbeque areas. Grading is projected to start in July with the first Rose Glen homes being available in the 2nd quarter of 2024.
Progressive Real Estate Partners’ Senior VP Paul Galmarini and Investment Land & Sales specialist Chris Lindholm represented both the Inland Empire based private-party seller and The Landmark Company in the transaction.
Century Communities, Inc. is a publicly traded (NYSE: CCS) top 10 national homebuilder, offering new homes under the Century Communities and Century Complete brands. The Colorado-based company operates in 18 states and over 45 markets including several developments in Southern California’s Inland Empire.
According to Galmarini, “Although the land was zoned light industrial the City of Upland had identified the area as being well suited for residential based on the adjacent uses and proximity to schools and other amenities. With the current housing shortage and California mandates to build more homes, cities across the Inland Empire are being very pro-active to identify new residential opportunities. The rezoning and entitlement process took approximately two years and during that time we worked closely with Landmark to obtain the necessary approvals.”
Lindholm added, “Rose Glen will be an excellent addition to the Upland community and offer prospective homebuyers a great opportunity to acquire a new home with modern interior features and convenient amenities. The property is also just a short distance from Downtown Upland which is undergoing a revitalization and features a variety of shops and restaurants with several new eateries opening this year. Additionally, the Downtown Upland Metrolink train station provides residents easy travel options between San Bernardino and Los Angeles.”

“Meadows Village Center’s traditional grocery and pharmacy offering, suburban neighborhood location, recent renovations including upgraded signage, landscaping, common areas, and more, proved to support increasing tenant performance at the property,” noted Slusher.
“CBRE generated significant offer activity from private 1031 exchange buyers and professional investors, largely fueled by the established Temecula location, Barons Market’s recent lease renewal and the seller’s investment in the property,” continues Slusher. “This sale validates that investor demand for high-performing, grocery-anchored retail continues to drive competitive bid scenarios.”
