No. The Veteran does not pay a fee toward the cost of the home, and there is no mortgage to be paid by the Veteran in the future.
No. Homes For Our Troops, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charity. As such, IRS regulations allow it to provide the home to Veterans in accordance with its mission and charter without any gift tax implications for the Veteran.
Although the Veteran pays no mortgage, HFOT places a 10 year lien on the home. This protects the Veteran from losing the home due to foreclosure and safeguards our donors’ investments in the program; it also provides a period of time for the family to become more financially stable. Beginning in year six, the Veteran accrues 20 percent equity per year until he/she has full equity after 10 years in the home. Of the over 360 Veterans for whom we have built homes, only three have moved out before the end of their lien period. This is reflective of our thorough selection process, and follow up once the Veterans are in their home.
It is our goal to build homes of the highest quality, using top quality products that endure the test of time (Shaw, Silestone, Whirlpool, CertainTeed, etc). We build all our homes to Energy Star standards, providing maximum efficiency and lower utility expense. We look for builders who have a track record of high quality workmanship in an effort to reduce the amount of maintenance and expense to our Veterans.
