Habitat Ups the Housing Ante with 1% Broker Campaign
Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley is all about changing the regional affordable housing game. A new giving campaign plus plans to build a modular home manufacturing plant in Rifle might move the game piece forward several more spaces.
Recently, Habitat RFV launched its new 1% “Sell a Home, Help Build a Home” campaign, partnering with real estate brokers in the area who have committed to donate 1% of their net sales commission to the cause of building affordable homes in the region.
Brokers are asked to commit to the program for at least a year, and their clients (buyers and sellers) can also contribute to the campaign through real estate transactions.
“It really is an opportunity for the real estate community to reinvest in our communities when it comes to affordable housing, and to be a part of that solution,” Habitat RFV President Gail Schwartz said.
