Henderson County Habitat for Humanity
We are looking for two infographics that explain the benefits of homeownership versus renting to potential and current low-income families.
~One each for Henderson County market (Henderson County Habitat for Humanity) & for Polk County and Landrum, SC (Thermal Belt Habitat for Humanity)
~Left side of infographic should include info about habitat homeownership, middle column should be conventional homeownership with interest, right side should include local info about rental costs for a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit
~Should be presented as initial costs of moving into a new home (closing costs) versus moving into a rental home (maybe downpayment, first/last month rent, security deposits, pet deposits, etc). This can be presented as low-high range, if needed.
~Should include average yearly costs of maintenance
~Should include average monthly utility (energy efficient habitat home versus rental unit)
~Should breakdown costs over a 10 year period. For example, for rentals, you have paid rent of $X,XXX every month for 10 years GIVING that money to a landlord and *optional* rental insurance, versus homeownership costs of paying $XXX into principal and money spent on taxes and insurance)
~Should include average maintenance costs for rental (Landlord responsibility) versus homeownership (homeowner responsibility) based on new home
~End should include total payment/repayment over 30 years. Should consider 1st mortgage, fixed interest (NA for rental, 4% for conventional, 0% for Habitat, length of mortgage or rental period, monthly payments and total interest paid for the conventional mortgage versus habitat versus renting)
So many people in the community do not fully understand the Habitat model. Some people feel that it is a scam, while others think that we give homes away. We are looking to develop a way to visually show people the benefits of homeownership in a clear and understandable way. This infographic would be used to help recruit new applicants to the Habitat program, therefore, helping to get families out of substandard housing. To help launch the creation of the infographic, we have some information compiled in documents and other information available through national programs documenting the cost of housing in our two service areas.
Henderson County Habitat for Humanity, a Christian organization, builds quality affordable homes, creates strong communities, and changes lives by partnering with committed volunteers, professional staff, and eligible families living in inadequate housing.
