FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – First-time homebuyers have an opportunity to learn more about Habitat for Humanity and whether they qualify for the unique affordable housing program. From Sept. 5 to Sept. 19, a pre-qualification questionnaire for the new Habitat for Humanity of Broward’s homeowner application process will be available online via www.habitatbroward.org. An affordable home with interest-free mortgage is one of the benefits that selected applicants will enjoy.
“This is an exciting opportunity for aspiring first-time homeowners,” said Nancy Robin, Habitat Broward CEO. “We strive to put hard-working families in safe, stable homes and we encourage families to visit our website to learn more.”
Habitat for Humanity of Broward brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. Habitat Broward offers a “hand up” not a “hand out” to low to very low-income families who are unable to qualify for conventional financing but are willing to work hard to improve their family’s lives.
Qualifying applicants will be invited to attend an orientation where they will be given directions on how to complete a full application package. Members of the volunteer Homeowner Support Committee will review the applications and supporting documentation to determine who is eligible to move to the next step, which includes a face-to-face interview and home visit.
Qualifications include but are not limited to the following:
Must be a first-time homebuyer.
Must be a U.S. Citizen or legal permanent resident of the U.S.
Must be a current Broward County resident (for a year or more).
Must demonstrate a need for affordable housing. Interested families can call 954-396-3030 or go to www.habitatbroward.org/homeownership/ to find out how Habitat Broward’s homeownership process works and about the qualifications necessary to become a homeowner.
