Jacquelyn Jones had been a renter at Homes at the Glen, a Homes for America affordable rental community, for seventeen years when she decided it was time to become a homeowner. Ms. Jones is in her seventies and, as many of us do as we age, was taking time to consider what would happen when she was gone. Driven by her desire to leave something to her daughter, Ms. Jones was referred to ACDS Housing Financial Advisor Shawn McGeth to create a plan of action.
Purchasing a home can be full of time-consuming and confusing paperwork. Often feeling overwhelmed by the mortgage proceedings but determined to ensure stability for her family, Ms. Jones turned to Shawn for her expertise and ability to navigate the home buying process. Shawn was crucial to ensuring Ms. Jones’ home purchase was completed successfully.
ACDS has been proud to partner with Homes for America to help counsel and provide loan packaging assistance for residents participating in a special lease-to-own program. To date, 11 households have moved from being renters to homeowners through this program.
