Financial Information

Habitat requires our homebuyers to finance the purchase of their home with a mortgage from an approved lender. This means that buyers will need to meet the underwriting requirements of the lender of choice including credit and reserve requirements.

Each neighborhood will have a mix of units available to buyers at different income levels. Depending on the buyer’s income at the time of purchase, any portion of the projected purchase price that is not covered by the mortgage, cash down payment and/or down payment assistance will be provided by Habitat.  

The housing payment will vary between buyers. Your monthly payment will be based on your income and household size.  Homebuyers must show that they can afford this payment without being cost-burdened (defined as spending more than 30-34% for your gross income for housing).

All the homes will be permanently affordable, allowing Habitat homeowners to build equity in their homes, while ensuring that the homes are affordable to the next buyer. This guarantees affordable neighborhoods in the future.

Availability

These homes are not under construction yet and will be open for applications at a later date. Please join our mailing list to hear when we open our next round of applications for future communities.
