Facts About Homeownership
Important Facts About Our Homeownership Program
Habitat homes are sold at no interest. In the commercial market, people may ultimately pay three times the selling price of their home over the course of their mortage as a result of paying interest. Habitat homes have no interest. Every dollar you put toward your home goes directly to paying off the cost of land, construction materials, and labor.
