Homeownership

How do I qualify?

Working in partnership with local families,
Habitat creates opportunities for homeownership.

Future Habitat homeowners are active participants in the homebuilding and home buying process. The foundation of our unique program is working in partnership with families seeking the strength, stability, and independence that homeownership provides. Habitat homeowners build and buy their very own homes, creating brighter futures for themselves and their families.

  • Have you been a resident of Pickens County for the past 12 months?

  • Have you been steadily employed for the past 12 months?

  • Are you willing to work 200 “sweat equity” hours on the building of your home or possibly other Habitat for Humanity Pickens County projects?

  • Anyone residing in your home 18 years of age or older must also agree to work 200 hours of “sweat equity.”

  • Are you able to set aside money for a down payment of 20% on a Habitat home if selected?

  • The 2% amount will be based on the cost of construction of the home.
