Moving Beyond the Fear

Fear can be paralyzing. For Shaun, it nearly cost him his dream of becoming a homeowner.

“I didn't know how the process worked or if I could even qualify for a home,” he says.  “It was really the fear of the unknown.” As a result, Shaun continued to rent.

Luckily, HomeFree-USA helped Shaun to step outside of his comfort zone.

“HomeFree-USA held my hand and walked me through the process. I didn't know anything about a mortgage -- I just thought I couldn't get one, but HomeFree-USA showed me that I could,” Shaun says.

  • First, Shaun sat with a HomeFree-USA advisor who helped him get his credit and finances in order.
  • Shaun then attended HomeFree-USA classes to learn more about the homebuying process.
  • When Shaun was ready, HomeFree-USA helped him find a lender.
  • Throughout the entire process, HomeFree-USA provided step-by-step guidance and gave Shaun the confidence boost he needed.

“HomeFree-USA helped me to conquer my fears,” he says. “It feels good to be paying for something that actually belongs to me, as opposed to paying someone else's mortgage.”
