June is Homeownership Month... There’s Nothing like
Many people believe they would never be able to qualify for
the loan needed to purchase a home
of their own. They think a 20 percent down
payment is mandatory, even though there are numerous
down payment assistance
programs they may qualify for. They think their credit score isn’t good
even though there are concrete steps anyone can take to improve their
score. They think you need to
have a high income, although this is highly
subjective. And they feel like they’d have to navigate the
on their own when free advisory services are available from nonprofit
like mine. The bottom line is that homeownership is the main way
families accrue wealth in our country,
and whole sectors of our population have
been systematically kept out of this aspect of our economy.
We’re working to
change that in our community one family at a time. FREE Homeownership workshop,
Tuesday June 11 and Wednesday June 12, from 4:00pm to 8:00pm at the Montrose
Citizen’s State Bank.
Must attend both evenings.
To register for the FREE workshop or for more information about the Home
Stretch workshops, www.wccaweb.com
