Frequently Asked Questions
Does Habitat provide housing free of cost?
No. Our potential partner families must first consent to having their credit checked, as they will be responsible for a monthly mortgage payment. In addition, they must meet “sweat equity” work hour requirements, based on the number of adults in the household, by helping to build not only their own home, but the homes of other partner families as well.
How is the eligibility for a Habitat home determined?
An applicant’s family must complete an application, provide all the requested verifications, and consent to a credit check. Once these steps are completed, the family will be interviewed in their current home by members of the Family Selection Committee, who will make a recommendation to the Board concerning the family’s suitability for the program.
My credit score isn’t very good, does that disqualify me?
Not necessarily. When we review a prospective homeowner’s credit, we are more concerned with their ability to pay the monthly mortgage, and meet their other monthly obligations, and not so much their FICO score.
