We work with families whose total income is between 20% – 70% of the area median income. Families are accepted to the Habitat program based on their need, ability to pay a zero percent interest mortgage, and their willingness to partner. Applicants must be residents of Bexar County. Once accepted, homeowners are eligible to buy a home from Habitat with a 20 – 25 year zero percent interest mortgage. Families spend a minimum of 300 hours investing in “sweat equity”. Where they support and help build their own home and the homes of their neighbors. Monthly payments average $600 (including taxes and insurance). In our 40-year history we have less than a 1.5% foreclosure rate.
Families partner with us and contribute a minimum of 300 hours of sweat equity, 15-20 hours of Home Owner Readiness classes and pay a minimal down payment on their mortgage. Mortgage payments are around $600 a month and include taxes and insurance.
