Just a single mom living my life for my wonderful son!
I do. I used $3000 of my tax money as a down payment and had the sellers pay closing cost. They agreed to a certain amount and it was over what they actually were so I got a check for over $800 at the closing table.
My house is very small, on a busy (main) road, but it is in an amazing school district. This May I will have owned it for 4 years now. It may be the ugliest house around but it's MINE and I LOVE it!!!
Good luck mama! It can be scary but totally worth the investment!
I own my house.
Think of it like this, rent goes entirely to someone's elses pocket, but with a mortgage, you are only paying interest to the bank, the rest is really going in your pocket as principle. It is a great investment, if you can get a good interest rate. I know there is fear of the economy tanking, and housing values dropping, and that is probably the fear people have, but who knows what will happen in the futrure. Good luck.
