Paying Off Your Mortgage
Habitat homeowners are hardworking, diligent families who understand that responsible homeownership doesn’t end at the closing table, it begins there. Habitat’s zero-percent mortgages enable homeowners to successfully manage their finances. Very few homeowners in the United States can say they own their home outright. But as of September 30, 2013, 117 Habitat homeowners can say that! We celebrate their accomplishment with a mortgage burning ceremony, symbolically burning a copy of their mortgage and presenting the homeowners with a framed certificate of accomplishment.
