Willingness to Partner
Purchasing a home through Habitat Charlotte Region does not require the same down payment that a mortgage on the open market typically does. Instead of a down payment, Habitat families agree to perform 250-300 total Homeowner-in-Process (HIP) Volunteer Hours and complete 16 weeks of HIP classes.
That willingness to partner with Habitat Charlotte Region also entails:
- Living and/or working in Charlotte, Pineville, Mooresville, Troutman, Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville, Statesville, or anywhere else in our service area (pictured, outlined in blue) for at least the last 12 months
- A commitment to a drug-free community
- Legal residence in the U.S., proven by a Permanent Resident Card, Naturalization Document or Birth Certificate
