I want to buy a home!

Postby logan.his » 01 Mar 2008, 18:02

I am a single mother working as a teacher and want to purchase a home. But don't think I can afford a home. I am tired of paying rent. Is there a way I can become a homeowner and not pay an outrageous mortgage? Your advice will be greatly appreciated!

The only thing I can think of is a lease purchase or option. You rent a house and a portion of the money you pay every month is applied to the purchase price. There are all different ways of doing it. Some landlords will let you do this for a certain number of years. At that time he would be holding the down payment. You could then apply for a mortgage with a bank. Sometimes a landlord will finance the purchase himself after a couple of years of good payment. But most important save and have an attorney look at the papers. When somebody does there own leases it usually favors them and not you.
Thanks Bob

DiMarco, Scarpulla, DiStefano, Ferrrara, Nuccio,
Constanza, Truzzolino, Princiotta, or Barbaria

My Grandfather was called Don DiMarco his name was Santo or Santos.

Hi JamesBianco,

Funny! But why to you appropriated that "coat of arms: for you avatar? Are you the comune? Do you have approval to use i? Or you have just made that one up? It seems to be the fad these days.
I like all your posts!

Hi JamesBianco!

I knew it but had to tease you!. Ok! should we call you carino?

Since it is an omaggio to your Nonna we let go this time, otherwise il report you to "napolitano" ... notice the small "n".

Abbraccione,

kioll,

I have deleted your post. This is a genealogy board, not a place to sell real estate.

Nuccia,
I think the first post was SPAM also. That's what James' comments about the "bots" was. If I am wrong, "Carino" please correct me. :D 8O :P :wink:

No, you are correct...

"Carino" knew they were bots.

Guess you just got yourself a new nickname James!

Hugs!
