We just found out last night that my family we selected as one of the 4 families this year to be selected to get a house through Habitat for Humanity. We are so excited.
So, in a bout 2 years and 3000 hours of "sweat equity", we will be in a brand new house.
The house will only cost us about $54,000 and there will be no interest on our mortgage. We will instantly have about $30,00 in equity when w move in since the house is worth much more than what they are able to build it for. And, our mortgage payments will only be bout $350 per month including tax and insurance.
Anyways, we are very excited and I just had to share.
If anyone would like more info on Habitat for Humanity, I would be happy to give more info, but I don't want to make this post too long.
Now that's a great reason to cheer... and to sweat !:smile2: Congratulations to your family
and blessings on your new home!
My involvement with Habitat's work was a great experience and I'd love to do it again, if they get something goin in our area. That was the most enjoyable... and rewarding... painting I've ever done.
Wish we lived closer!
Wow! That is awesome news. Congrats on getting a new home. I've heard alot about this program. Across the river from us, in Indiana, they are building several houses, for tornado victims. I've seen the progress they've done, on TV. They have many volunteers working long hours.... and the finished homes are extremely nice. Your family is truly blessed with this opportunity. I'm excited for you!
