My First Home

Thanks to Roman May

I bought my first home this year, and I am so proud of myself. It’s not every day that you see a young, single woman purchase her own home with her own money. I have worked so hard to save a down payment and choose the right house for myself. I felt that spending money on rent wasn’t a good choice for me. Rents are so high that I knew I could buy a place and pay less for my mortgage payment every month than I was spending on rent. Most people my age that buy homes need help from their parents for a down payment, but not me. I did everything on my own, and it wasn’t easy. I had to cut back on going out with friends, and have been driving a car that is on its last legs. I’m lucky it even lasted me this long! The one thing I didn’t skimp on was safety. I made sure to buy in a very safe neighborhood, and immediately went to to set up a home alarm system. The way I look at it, you can never have too much peace of mind.
