Future Habitat homeowners work to build their home alongside our community partners, but they also take steps that will help ensure their long-term success once they are in their home.
One example is participation in our home buyer education workshops.
These workshops include a variety of information from learning about our homeownership program to maintaining your home, here are some of the workshops we teach that our future homeowners attend: Partnership and Media Relations, Financial Foundations (budgeting, managing money, preparing, planning and saving for major expenses of a house, etc.), Buying and Funding Your Home (what’s involved in a mortgage contract, amortization, property taxes, legal fees), Protecting your Home & Family (insurance) and Maintaining your Home.
Owing a home is a big commitment, we want to ensure our future homeowners are well prepared for the rewards and challenges it takes to own and properly maintain their home for years to come.
