Homeowner since June of 2013
I Purchased a brand new 3 bedroom 2 ½ bath rancher located in Henrico County.
I received Grants and Down Payment Assistance totaling $15,000.
I purchased my home because I didn’t want to rent anymore.
Advantage of home-ownership is that I’m paying for something that's mine, I own it! Plus I have something to leave my children.
Disadvantage to home-ownership is fixing things myself and the yard work.
I encourage you to challenge yourself. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be to become a homeowner.
