Frequently Asked Questions
When will construction be complete?
Construction for all three phases of Habitat’s Kaicasa neighborhood is projected to be complete by 2032. Weather, permitting, and other factors may affect the actual timeline.
Will the construction of this Habitat for Humanity neighborhood near existing neighborhoods negatively affect property values?
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.
Will the additional homes have a negative impact on existing water and sewer infrastructure?
No. Habitat Collier is actually investing to improve infrastructure, which will benefit the community as a whole.
