If you don't have money, there is still a chance you can get a home. Yes, believe it or not, based on your income, there might be another way. Have you ever heard about Habitat for Humanity?

Keep in mind that the approval process can take a few months, but here is a quick guideline as to what you will need before you can apply. The information that you will need to be prepared to show with your application include, proof of residence for the last year, you also need to be a US resident, you will need to be able to provide a small deposit, and be willing to work not only on your home, but also on others. Can you do that?

When you submit your application you will need to have some significant info. You will need to show proof of income, including your tax returns, w-2's, birth certificate, photo ID, bank statements, as well as more additional documents.
