  • Will my mortgage be affordable?
    Yes, our mission is to ensure that our homeowners obtain an affordable mortgage. We calculate mortgage amounts using a third party appraiser to determine the home sale price and by calculating 30% of the household’s income. If 30% of the household’s income is not enough to pay the full sale price of the home, then a second mortgage will be assigned at 0% interest and payable in full only in the event of sale, default under the first mortgage, transfer of title, maturity of the mortgage note, or refinancing of the first mortgage by a third-party lender.
  • Does Teton Habitat offer rental housing?
    Teton Habitat does not offer short-term housing, rental housing, or immediate occupancy.
