Are you ready to apply for a Habitat home?
Have you looked at our AVAILABLE HOMES?
We are here to help guide you.
STEP 1: The first step toward purchasing a Habitat home is to complete our eligibility questionnaire. SEE BELOW. You can complete the questionnaire online below or in person at the Habitat office. Once you complete your questionnaire, a member of our team will be in touch with you within 5 business days to discuss your answers and the next steps. If you have any questions during the process, please call the Habitat office at (207) 942-8977 and leave a message for our homeowner selection team.
STEP 2: SUBMIT A FULL APPLICATION If you are eligible to apply for a Habitat home, we will meet with you to review next steps and provide you with information about how to get in touch with our local banking partners. All Habitat homebuyers go through rigorous screening including credit and background checks, employment verification and landlord references.
IF YOU AREN’T ELIGIBLE AT THIS TIME Don’t worry! Our staff will help identify the obstacles in your path to becoming a Habitat homeowner, and we will refer to you agencies and organizations that can help you resolve those issues. Our community partners are available to help you repair your credit, organize your finances and resolve your emergency housing situations. Once those obstacles are removed, you are welcome to apply again.
