How Much do Habitat Homes Cost?
The costs of homes vary depending on the size and type. The average appraisal cost of a home Habitat builds in Dane County is $165,000. Habitat homes are affordable for low-income families because there is no profit included in the sale price and low- or no-interest charged on the mortgage. Mortgage length varies from 20 to 30 years.
The money to build a home is raised through the generous contributions of individuals, churches and faith groups, business and organizations. This money, combined with generous in-kind donations, the time of hundreds of volunteers and the sweat equity of the homeowner, enables Habitat for Humanity of Dane County bring decent, affordable housing to families in need and to build stronger communities.
