Qualified Habitat homebuyers are:
In need of better housing
Potential homebuyers might be dealing with poorly maintained, unhealthy or overcrowded housing; unaffordable rent; inaccessible housing for people living with disabilities; or have other shelter needs.
Willing to partner with Habitat
Habitat homebuyers put in 500 hours of volunteer time with Habitat. This typically involves helping build their own home or the homes of others in the program, volunteering in their local Habitat ReStore as well as taking classes in personal finance, home maintenance and other home ownership topics.
Able to make affordable mortgage payments
Habitat offers home buyers an affordable home ownership opportunity. Their mortgage payments cycle back into the local Habitat for Humanity to help build more affordable houses.
