These homes have been sold to individuals and families with a 0% mortgage. By providing affordable housing to low-income families, families are realizing an annual savings, on average, between $5,000-$6,000 which can be reinvested into the community; this totals between $645,000-$774,000.Relative to the benefit and reinvestment in the community economically, the total property taxes paid by Habitat families since 1989 have eclipsed $1 million. Since Bend Area Habitat’s inception, assuming an average property value of $120,000, Habitat has added $15.5 million in assessed value of property. By providing affordable homes, Habitat is making a significant impact on individuals’ lives as well as benefitting this community.Bend Area Habitat is thrilled to be able to celebrate their 106th home built by this amazing community of volunteers, businesses, and individuals and, of course, each family purchasing a Habitat home.Crystal Wargo and her three children, Darian, Cloe and Blake, will purchase the 106th home from Bend Area Habitat. Crystal says, “I’ve moved a lot and want stability for my family. I want to be able to come home to the same place every day and with Habitat that is now possible for us. There is no history of homeownership in my family. I will be the first. I hope my children are forever changed because of this incredible opportunity through Habitat.”Bend Area Habitat for Humanity’s 106th home is part of a world-wide effort to eliminate sub-standard housing for families like the Wargo’s who deserve to live in decent and affordable housing.
