Answer the following questions to yourself to help determine if you are ready for homeownership.

Are you and your family ready, willing, and able to:

 

  • Equal Housing OpportunityMake a commitment to live in the same home for many years?  (It’s easy to move when you rent, but when you own a house, moving is much more complicated!)
  • Mail my mortgage payment to the mortgage company every month? (All mortgage companies, including Habitat for Humanity, will foreclose on homeowners that become delinquent in their payments).
  • Save $2,000 for closing costs and other start-up expenses related to home ownership?
  • Budget for ALL expenses of homeownership, including but not limited to water, heat, electricity, garbage, property taxes, homeowner’s insurance, etc.?
  • Fix a broken toilet myself, or spend money to hire a plumber when it breaks?
  • Spend hours of my “free time” keeping the house in good condition (painting, doing repairs, yard work, cleaning, etc.) instead of doing other things I enjoy?
  • Learn the skills necessary to do maintenance on my home?
  • Keep the lawn mowed in the summer (this includes maintaining a lawn mower!), and keep the sidewalk clear of ice and snow all winter long?
  • Spend time getting to know my neighbors?, since good relationships with neighbors are the start of healthy, strong communities

 

Also, ask yourself the following three questions:

  • Do I need a better place to live because my current home is overcrowded, deteriorating, or unhealthy?   Have I done everything I can to improve where I live, but it cannot or will not get any better?
  • Am I willing to spend hundreds of hours helping to build my own home before I see any payoff or results?  Can I work hard, consistently, toward my long-term goal of owning my own home?
  • Can I share my life and my “story” with other members of the community who want to give me a hand up? 

 

If you answered “yes” to ALL of the above items, you may be ready to become a homeowner.

The next Homeownership Application Orientation Classes have not been scheduled at this time.
