Homeowner since May of 2015
I Purchased a brand new 3 bedroom, 2 bath home located in Chesterfield County.
I received Grants and Down Payment Assistance totaling $20,000.
I purchased my home because I was tired of living in an apartment with the rent going up each year.
Advantage of home-ownership is having privacy. I come home to my own driveway. Plus, I no longer have to listen to my neighbor’s noise.
Disadvantage to home-ownership is that I’m responsible for everything in my house. If anything breaks I have to fix it!
I encourage you to invest in a home of your own. You don’t get anything paying rent. When you pay your own mortgage, you know it’s all yours.
