A safe place to raise a family
Monday, May 22, 2017
Did you know that homeownership is good for children? Families that own rather than rent their homes tend to be more stable, which translates to kids feeling safer, having fewer behavioral problems and even doing better in school.
You might think owning your own home is a pipe dream. But there’s a surprising amount of assistance available, particularly for first time homebuyers. GROW South Dakota has a number of resources to help people navigate the complexities of home buying, including homeowner education classes.
Financial assistance is also available to those who qualify, in the form of direct loans, down payment assistance and closing costs.
