Townhome living: homeownership simplified

Townhomes have been around since the 19th century, but they are regaining popularity among first-time homebuyers. The attached-home design offers former renters a homeownership experience without the cost of a single-family home.

Dockside is Habitat Collier’s first venture into a townhome design, which allows us to keep the cost of the homes affordable in a desirable Naples location. 

This beautiful neighborhood also boasts HOA managed landscaping and exterior maintenance, creating an easy transition into homeownership and guaranteeing you’ll never have to worry about mowing the lawn after work!

Neighbors You’ll Love

As with all Habitat homes, Dockside homeowners will undergo a thorough approval and vetting process prior to purchase. Families are selected based on need, ability to repay, and willingness to partner.

Our partner families fill a number of important roles in our community, working for businesses you know and love like Publix, Arthrex, NCH, Collier County Public Schools, The Ritz Carlton, Greenscapes, Crowther Roofing and more. 

Homeowners must be U.S. Citizens or permanent residents, have lived or worked in Collier County for at least one year, are subject to a criminal background check, and are subject to rules established and enforced by the Homeowners Association. Criminal activity by any resident is grounds for termination of the mortgage.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will construction be complete?

Construction for Habitat’s Dockside neighborhood is scheduled to wrap up by the end of summer 2020. Weather, permitting, and other factors may affect the actual timeline. 

Will the construction of a Habitat for Humanity neighborhood near my neighborhood negatively affect my property value?

No. Habitat hires an independent, third-party appraiser who provides us with a market value of the home. The home is then sold at market value. The difference between affordability and market-rate is preserved through a silent second mortgage.   

Do families receive their homes for free?

No. All Habitat homeowners undergo a rigorous approval process and must contribute 500 hours of sweat equity helping to build their homes and the homes of their neighbors. They attend homeownership and budgeting classes and make a downpayment and their first year’s insurance payment before closing. They sign a no-interest mortgage and make affordable monthly payments to purchase their homes over an average term of about 20 years.

Does having Habitat families in my school district negatively affect school ratings?

Absolutely not! In fact, school grades in the area have increased since Habitat began building homes in Naples in the 1990s.

Does Habitat build homes outside of East Naples?

Yes. Habitat for Humanity of Collier County has homes across the county and continues to build in a variety of areas including the Golden Gate Estates, Immokalee, Golden Gate City, Naples Manor, Bayshore, North Naples, and even within the City of Naples.

Will the additional homes have a negative impact on existing water and sewer infrastructure?

No, the existing infrastructure is sufficient and residents in the area should not experience any change in these services.
