Looking to own a home?

Habitat partners with qualified, low-income families to provide opportunities for affordable homeownership. Many families are surprised to learn they can own their own home by partnering with Habitat. It takes hard-work and determination, but the reward is life-changing.

Why buy with Habitat?

  • Zero-percent interest mortgage with affordable monthly payments set at 30% of your household income
  • Homebuyer education classes prepare you for the responsibilities of homeownership
  • Post-purchase support provides maintenance advice, resources, and opportunities to connect with your community

  • You’ve lived in the Fostoria area for at least one year.
  • You meet our income eligibility guidelines.
  • You haven’t owned a home during the past three years (waived for U.S. military members and veterans; owners of manufactured homes are eligible).
