DMAR is partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver
Let's help make the dream of homeownership a reality for all.
Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver’s homeownership program empowers individuals and families to build and buy their own homes. With Denver’s housing costs reaching record highs in recent years, becoming a first-time homeowner in our city has become increasingly difficult. Habitat for Humanity’s homeownership program provides an opportunity for first-time homebuyers to get their feet into Denver’s competitive market. Habitat partners with homeowners every step of the way; from application to closing, Habitat for Humanity provides the education and support needed to be a successful homeowner.
Homeowners are selected into the program based on
three sets of criteria:
Ability to pay a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage with monthly payments not to exceed 30 percent of the homebuyers’ gross monthly income. Average home prices in the $200,000s* *Based on average sales price of Habitat homes in FY2020.
No down payment required.
Low closing costs & below-market interest rates.
Willingness to partner by helping to build or renovate homes alongside volunteers, and complete homebuyer education classes.
Demonstrate a need for housing by currently experiencing housing challenges like lack of affordability, overcrowding and income at or below the maximum allowed for their household size.
