Verde Valley Habitat for Humanity is currently accepting applicants
Verde Valley Habitat for Humanity is now seeking qualified homebuyers for Habitat homes. Interested applicants are asked to
submit our online form below so that we can contact you to discuss qualifications and reserve your spot in an upcoming information session.
Families are selected based on the following three criteria:
The applicant’s current living situation and whether they have the means to qualify for a home with a
traditional mortgage lender will be considered. Does a majority of the applicant’s income go toward housing?
Is the applicant’s housing substandard or temporary? Applicants who qualify based on their ability to pay
will also receive a home-visit to further evaluate their living conditions.
Ability to Pay
During the application and selection process each applicant’s income will be considered.
The applicants need to have a steady source of verifiable income and be able to pay a monthly
mortgage payment which consists of mortgage amount, taxes and insurance. The applicant family must have and maintain good credit with no bankruptcy pending or discharged within the last 24 months.
Willingness to Partner
Each applicant is required to complete a minimum of 300 ‘sweat equity’ hours. The hours can be
completed by volunteering at the construction site of their future home or one of their neighbors’ homes, by
working at the Restore, by working in the Habitat office or by serving at another community endeavor.
Homeowner education classes and workshops are a mandatory part of the sweat equity requirement. The classes are designed
to help families prepare for homeownership and manage their finances.
Prospective homeowners must meet the following requirements:
- Be citizens or permanent legal residents.
- Prove steady verifiable income.
- Have good credit.
In addition, each partner family will be required to:
- Invest sweat-equity hours in building his/her home and Habitat homes of others.
- Make an affordable down payment.
- Make timely mortgage payments.
- Attend homeowner education classes.
