Why Be A Homeowner?


A home builds...
Strength – with a little help, you have the potential to stand on your own
Stability – with a decent home, you can remove barriers to opportunity, health & success
Self-reliance – with an affordable  mortgage, you can save, invest in education, & be more financially stable.

Why Is Owning Better Than Renting?

The JOYS of homeownership...
My payments are purchasing something that will be mine!
It’s more stable…I don’t have to keep moving.
I can decorate any way I want.
I can be part of a neighborhood.
There’s a space for everyone in the family


What It Means To Be A Homeowner

When things go wrong, I will have to take care of them myself. 
It can get expensive. I will have to replace things when they wear out. 
I will have to take care of my yard (mowing, watering, trimming, raking). 
I will have to pay for the ground lease, property taxes, insurance and termite bond, even after the house is paid off.
