Homeowner since October of 2015
I Purchased a 4 bedroom 2 ½ bath home located in Henrico County late 2015.
I received Grants and Down Payment Assistance totaling $7,500
I purchased my home because I was paying more in rent than what my mortgage payment is, that, and I needed more space for my family.
Advantage of home-ownership is that it’s all mine! I can decorate how I want. I created a space for kids to hang out close but where I don’t have to hear them.
Disadvantage of home-ownership is that I have to do everything myself. There is no landlord to call when things need fixing. It costs a lot more money to decorate a home the way you want.
I encourage you to invest in yourself. Do your own research, don’t just rely on what others tell you. Make sure you complete a home inspection as a part of your home purchase; continue to build your legacy.
