There are many costs associated with getting a Habitat homeowner family into their new home. Some, such as building materials, are obvious. Others are less so. Home appraisals fall into the latter category. Because Habitat homes are sold to families based on the fair market value of the home, these appraisals are very necessary to our organization.
Thankfully, the Comox Valley is full of community-minded local businesses that help to alleviate some of these not-so-obvious costs. Wm. S. Jackson & Associates Ltd. – Real Estate Appraisers and Consultants is one of those businesses. While they have been involved with Habitat since the beginning, they most recently volunteered their services for the Cote family’s new home in Courtenay.
When asked why they choose to consistently partner with Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North, this is what appraiser Dan Wilson had to say: “We have supported Habitat from the very beginning. We’ve been involved with all the builds. We truly support what Habitat does to build our local community, and we are very excited for the opportunity to be a part of that process.”
Thank you, Wm. S. Jackson & Associates Ltd., for generously lending your talents to Habitat for Humanity. We are so lucky to live in a community where businesses support affordable homeownership for families.
