No one said it would be easy when you become a single parent. Buying a house can make it seem like the stress is never ending, It’s a complex process involving major financial commitment, which can be scary. For most people it’s the largest single purchase they will make in their lifetime. Beyond the financial commitment, home ownership is an important milestone in ones life. It’s an expression of lifestyle, as well as the place that will shape your family’s life. It’s always a plus when you can put money down on a home, this shows that you are investing not only money but your time in the home. Many lenders require a down payment for the home. Check interest rate to make sure they are fixed for the life of the loan, so there will be no unexpected surprises down the road. Always remember that as a buyer, you are in control of what you want. Don’t feel like you have to make a quick decision or that you have to compromise. You are in charge.
Growing up with a single mother was not always a breeze but it has taught me many lessons. She bought our home before I was born, and still lives there and loves it. This should be how you feel in 20 years after your kids are all grown up. You figure out how much you can afford. You make sure you can do it even in the slow months. You make a check list of what you want for you dream home. How many bedrooms & baths. Maybe you want acreage for the kids to run on or build that crazy tree house. If you want stairs in the house or a modern look or country look. The options are endless.
I have seen firsthand, how making a quick and irrational decision can make you compromise on buying a home. This is one life decision you don’t want to be irrational about. This will be a landmark in your own family. A place for you to call home and build amazing memories. A safe place where you will get to watch your kids grow into their own person, where they can make mistakes and learn from them.
Raising a family is challenging enough, loving and supporting them by yourself is even more difficult. It’s satisfying to see how much you can accomplished when you set your mind to it. You will show your kids some of the possibilities that can be achieved witch hard work, determination and good planning. Using the above skills, people have demonstrated even with very few resources you can craft a life you can enjoy.
