Basic Homeownership Qualifications

Willingness to Partner
Each future Habitat homeowner is required to complete a minimum of 200 ‘sweat equity’ hours. The hours are completed by volunteering at the construction site and at Habitat’s HabiStore. (Special accommodations will be made for those who cannot work at those sites)

Additionally, homeowner education classes and workshops are a mandatory part of the sweat equity requirement. The classes are designed to help future homeowners prepare for homeownership.

Habitat homeowners may also be asked to participate in media interviews and presentations to sponsors and other community groups by sharing their personal stories

Need

The applicant’s current living situation and whether they have the means to qualify for a home with a traditional mortgage lender will be considered. Does a majority of the applicant’s income go toward housing? Is the applicant’s housing substandard or temporary? Applicants who qualify based on their ability to pay will also receive a home-visit to further evaluate their living conditions.

Ability to Pay

During the application and selection process each applicant’s income will be considered. The applicants need to have a steady source of income. They must be able to pay a monthly mortgage and their credit history needs to indicate this. Habitat homeowners are responsible for their monthly mortgage payment, property taxes and insurance.

Below is a chart with minimum and maximum family income requirements based on family size.
