How it works

Habitat for Humanity builds their homes with professional architects and local trades. The homes are built to spec and blend seamlessly with the neighbouring homes.

Habitat also holds the mortgage to each of the properties, so instead of borrowing money from a bank — you pay them back — with no interest or down payment.

Each mortgage payment made by a homeowner is reinvested into Habitat to build more homes, so each family helps another family buy their first home.

Here are the steps to buying your home:

  1. Take the Eligibility Quiz to see if you meet the basic criteria to buy a Habitat home
  2. Attend an information session
  3. Submit an Application
  4. Complete your volunteer hours
  5. Buy and move in to your new home
