Homeowner since July 2012
I Purchased a 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath completely renovated home.
I received Grants and Down Payment Assistance totaling $50,000.
I purchased my home because I was tired of paying outrageous amounts for rent.
Advantages of home-ownership include painting and decorating. I can do whatever I want with my home.
Disadvantage to home-ownership is the upkeep and maintenance. I have a home warranty in case a major repair becomes necessary.
I encourage you to invest time researching what grants are out there to assist you purchasing a home.
