Own a Home

Habitat partners with qualified, low-income families to provide opportunities for affordable homeownership. 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

Are you eligible?

You may be if...

  • 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).

There are three requirements to apply for a Habitat home.

  1. Your current housing situation must be substandard as defined in our application.
  2. Your family’s gross income (before taxes) must be below the 80% HUD Income Guideline of Family GROSS INCOME according to Family Size.
