Home Ownership - Who Qualifies?
Four fundamental criteria are used to determine who is selected to be a Habitat partner.
Need for Shelter - The applicant's current shelter is inadequate because it is either structurally unsound, overcrowded, has unsafe, unsanitary or unhealthy conditions, or the resident is paying more than 50% of household income for housing.
Willingness to Partner - The applicant agrees to completes 250 hours of sweat equity per adult in the family and participates in the partnership program that may include financial counseling and household management education.
Residency – Each affiliate has a residency requirement. A partner family would typically live and/or work in the county of Orange or Washington.
Ability to Pay a Mortgage - The applicant's household income is between 30% and 60% of area’s median income based on family size( 2020 numbers below). For a 20-30 year mortgage, a homeowner’s monthly housing expenses may be approximately $500 to $800 a month (includes mortgage payment, home insurance, and property taxes).
