As you enjoy your morning cup of coffee from your balcony, you can watch your kids play in the green space below. 

Bikes strewn on the green space, neighbouring children emerging one-by-one to join in the fun and their parents partaking in your morning patio ritual — this isn’t just a house, it’s your home. 

You have the choice to add your personal flair with paint colours or even wallpaper, which you don’t have to worry about removing when your lease is up, because you own your home. 

You can breathe easy knowing that your children have a safe, stable and long-term home to grow up in.

What’s the best part — you did it all without a down payment and unlike a bank mortgage, you don’t have to pay any interest on your loan.

How it Works 

Habitat for Humanity builds their homes with professional architects and trades and with the help of volunteers like you who get to have a hand in building a home.

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 make your payments to Habitat— 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 build 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. If approved, attend an Orientation Session
  5. Complete your volunteer hours 
  6. Buy and move in to your new home
