Habitat for Humanity Greater Orlando & Osceola County’s HabiTours are a fun way for our supporters to not only get a complete look at our homes, but also to learn about our homeownership program and its impact!
In this time of social distancing, we decided to put together a virtual HabiTour to give you the chance to experience a bit of this offering from your own home. Although we’re staying physically apart, we can still virtually come together to better our community.
Watch this video to take your HabiTour! Then, read on for a few more HabiFacts.
As you can see from the video, Habitat homes don’t just provide shelter, although that is an important need for some of our homeowners. A safe, affordable home also gives homeowners and their families a chance to thrive.
Here are a few things extra facts about homeownership and Habitat Orlando & Osceola homes that you can learn from our HabiTour:
- Habitat Orlando & Osceola homeowners pay no more than 30 percent of their income on their mortgage. Free from rent hikes and eviction threats, people who own safe, affordable homes can turn to other needs such as higher education, better healthcare, and more nutritious food.
- Children of homeowners have higher educational attainment – they are 116% more likely to graduate from college.
- Children of homeowners are 59% more likely to own a home within 10 years of leaving their parents.
