Ladies, We Have Come A Long Way: Mother/daughter duo help single women with families buy homes
I have addressed the trend before: the fact that the majority of first-time buyers are female. My reason for this is: “Because we can.” In 1986 Familial Status was added to the Protected Class. Which means you can not discriminate against people with children. Back in 1971, I was denied housing because I was a single mother. Now look at me, I'm listing and selling Real Estate.
Melissa has 2 new clients that are single young ladies who are buying homes because they are adopting children. To me it is so exciting; I couldn’t even imagine having the opportunity back in the 70’s. One has already started out by doing foster care and is in the process of adopting her foster child. The other young lady is applying for up to 4 children, siblings. Melissa and I cannot express how honored we are to be involved with them. We are able to assist them in the City of Euclid’s down payment assistance program, which is allowing them to buy more house for their money.
The City of Euclid Downpayment assistance program and the OHFA Hero’s program can be combined. We have helped people, just like you, purchase and sell homes through these and other great programs that are available for many walks of life. Please call us and let us know how we can assist you.
