Home Owner Questions




Your a new home owner and suddenly there are so many things to do that just were not there as a renter. This page is intended to help new home owners with areas they are not familiar with. If you have a question that is not on our site, or would like to suggest a different solution video  please submit it so we can add it and help all the people out there. Each question will take you to a YouTube video explaining the process. Your video will be displayed in a new tab so just close that tab to be brought back to Habitat for Humanity. Feel free to search for other answers in YouTube.
