Homeowner since March of 2015
I Purchased my 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath home in March of last year.
I received Grants and Down Payment Assistance totaling $27,000.
I purchased my home because I wanted to have a place of my own. A place I could make my home.
Advantage of home-ownership is that I have a lot more privacy then when I was renting. I can now have friends and family visit and stay for as long as they want.
Disadvantage of home-ownership is the landscaping! I have to pay someone to cut my grass. Every time it rains the grass grows. Every time the grass grows I have to get it cut.
I encourage you to research the home purchase process so you will know all the steps. But most of all, you have to remain patient. Things always take longer than you think they should!
