Homeowner since November 2010
I Purchased a brand new 3 bedroom,1 bath ranch style home in the Southside of Richmond..
I received Grants and Down Payment Assistance totaling $30,000
I purchased my home because it was a great investment and a place where I can raise my family.
Advantages of home-ownership include the freedom include the fact that I’ve made a very good investment towards my future. Another advantage is no longer renting paying someone else’s mortgage.
Disadvantage to home-ownership is keeping the grass cut and taking care of the repairs myself.
I encourage you to take advantage of Down Payment Grants and the free home purchase classes.
