Homeownership

Providing strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter for those in need.

Homebuyer Program

Habitat for Humanity of Horry County works with volunteers in the community to build homes. Once completed, the homes are sold to qualified buyers at no profit with a 30-year, interest free mortgage.  We are able to offer this incredible opportunity because of generous support from churches, businesses and individuals in our community.

For groups of 10 or more, please email [email protected]

Sweat Equity

Each Habitat Home Buyer in our Home Buyer Program completes a minimum of 300 hours of sweat equity per adult  prior to purchasing and moving into their Habitat home.

Sweat equity is the volunteer time invested by Home Buyers in building their own and other Habitat houses, volunteering in the ReStore, attending monthly Home Buyer meetings, working and attending at Habitat events and volunteering with other community organizations.  Sweat equity increases the personal stake of each family member in the home, fosters partnership with Habitat and is a key principle of Habitat in building partnerships across economic, racial and national divisions.
