What if I have bad credit?
Cincinnati Habitat wants to sell homes to low-income families in need who have demonstrated that they are able to handle their finances responsibly. If you have had problems with finances in the past, you may still qualify for a home as long as you are currently making timely payments on all debts and do not have an excessive amount of debt. If you are concerned about your debt, we recommend that you contact the Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Greater Cincinnati at (513) 366-4500.
