The Feeling of Owning Your Own Home

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

How do you know if home ownership is right for you?  There are many factors to think about when weighing this decision.  For Katlyn and Ross, they knew investing in a home of their own would be a better option, rather than paying “an arm and a leg” for rent each month.  The next step in their journey was deciding what their options were, and where they needed to start.


When a friend referred them to GROW South Dakota, it proved to be a great fit to lead them down the path to home ownership.  In addition to providing financing, Katlyn and Ross were required to take a first time home buyers education class, “The first time home buyers class was great.  It helped us to anticipate thing that would happen in our home buying process.”

When asked how their lives have changed since becoming homeowners, Katlyn stated, “Having our own home is a great feeling.  We don’t have an overbearing payment each month and we are able to relax and enjoy it.  Plus our dogs have their own space in the fenced yard, which is so nice.”
