FAQ
What if my home has a lien or mortgage?

We separately evaluate all submitted properties. You can fill out the contact form and we will respond to you promptly!

What if the home needs repairs?

We will still accept the property, even if it is not in the most ideal condition.

What does Monroe County Habitat for Humanity do with the house?

We will either rehab the home so it is suitable to sell to a struggling renter at a very low or 0% interest rate or we will sell it immediately and use the funds toward a home that can be rehabbed for a partner family!

What if I was unable to sell the property? Can I still donate?

Every property is individually assessed but most times, yes!

How long will it take?

If everything is in order, and no issues persist, the process can take up to a month.

What tax benefits will I get?

You can claim the market value of your home at the time of donation. You can get more details from a CPA or Advisor.

Do I have to be at the closing?

Nope! All of the necessary documents will be mailed to you!

Will I be charged any fees?

MCHFH will pay all closing and recording fees. However, to receive your tax deduction, you’ll need a current appraisal on the property. According to the IRS, MCHFH cannot pay for the appraisal. Though, if you already have an appraisal, you will not need another one.
