At the encouragement of a few office colleagues -- other single women who had successfully navigated the home buying process -- Towanna called HomeFree USA to register for classes and seek home buying help.
She did not know if she could purchase her first home or find professionals on her own that she trusted, but all of that changed when a HUD approved non-profit gave her the answers and confidence to move forward.
The home counseling and the information she received helped her feel knowledgeable about her finances, the mortgage process, and her search for her perfect home. As a homeowner who replaced her prior rent payment with an almost equal mortgage payment, she radiates with the pride of ownership and her girls feel the same way.
Her advice for those considering purchasing their first home: “Surround yourself with knowledge and professionals -- those who you believe in! The right education and the right partners make all the difference.”
