Given the clear link between automobile exhaust and massive health issues (especially in kids), that two recent HfH projects have been located near heavily trafficked arterials isn't great.

An additional Re-Store is opening at Cloverdale and Blanshard, enter off Oak.

Greater Victoria’s Habitat for Humanity is putting out a call to families interested in owning one of 11 new homes on the Saanich Peninsula.

Through the program, successful applicants will work with Habitat for Humanity to build themselves a new home and purchase it at a fair market value. Habitat will help with affordable financing options, establishing mortgage payments that don’t take up more than 30 per cent of the family’s gross income.

Successful applicants will need to demonstrate certain requirements to be considered, including currently living in need, having the ability to meet payment requirements and holding a willingness to partner with Habitat in the near future.

Banks already establish those mortgage payments to be 30%.

This sounds odd. How do you live “in need,” but qualify to finance a new-build house? The cost of homeownership is far, far beyond the mortgage once it’s built.

It sounds to me like Habitat is becoming a land developer.

Know it all.
Citified.ca is Victoria's most comprehensive research resource for new-build homes and commercial spaces.
