Frequently Asked Questions
Does Habitat give away homes for free?
How much does a house cost?
Here at Habitat we strive to build each of our homes for less than the appraised value.
Does the cost vary by house size?
What are the terms of the mortgage?
Mortgages are financed with terms depending on what is affordable for each specific family.
Where does the mortgage money go? Does that help fund more homes?
Mortgage payments are received by Habitat. That money goes directly back into the organization, allowing Habitat to invest in additional housing opportunities in the community. This sustainable revolving revenue stream is known as the Fund for Humanity.
