Can I choose my own house and where it will be built?
If you are buying a house on the open market using Habitat’s mortgage, then you will be able to decide which house you purchase and where it is located. If you are buying a house that was built or renovated by Habitat, you will be given a list of homes to choose from. The decision about where it is located cannot be changed after you commit to buying. If you qualify to purchase a home through Habitat, you will learn about the homes you are eligible to buy based on your family size and income.
If I buy with Habitat, do I get to choose where I want to live?
Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity develops and builds, as well as renovates, homes in the seven-county Twin Cities metro area. As a qualified applicant, you will have the option to select a Habitat for Humanity property of your choosing. Habitat will not match you to a house you do not want.
