maintaining affordable housing in our cities
At Habitat Charlotte Region, we know how challenging it can be to find an affordable home in or near the Queen City. To help, our Open Market Homes program is designed to offer reasonably priced homes to families and individuals who qualify for their own mortgage and fit certain income qualifications (Applicants must have a minimum annual income of $37,500 and a maximum of 80% on HUD’s Area Median Income guidelines.).
We acquire existing properties in the greater Charlotte region, in many cases, by buying back Habitat-built homes from their original owners. Our construction team goes through the home, provides any needed updates and cosmetic repairs, and then makes these properties available through our Open Market Homes program.
