Become a home buyer

Are you interested in being a Habitat home owner?

You could be considered for a Habitat home if your present housing is not adequate, and if you are unable to obtain adequate housing through other conventional means. Lack of adequate housing may include problems with present structure, water, electrical, heating or sewer systems, or failure to meet property maintenance standards. Also considered are the number, ages and gender of the children compared with the bedrooms in your present home.

The percentage of your monthly income that you currently spend on housing is considered to determine need. You will be required to openly and fully discuss you financial situation with a Habitat interviewer.

You must live in Stokes County for 6 months, and your total family income must not be greater that the number below for your family size.*
