I have always dreamed of owning a home, but as a renter I never thought it would become a reality so soon.
In Septemeber I was in the library searching for an apartment to rent on the internet, when I came across your book “How to become an automatic Millionaire in real estate”…yes I thought, I would love to own a home in a few years. I started to read your book and I finished it within a few hours…You inspired me so much, I had no idea that home ownership could be so attainable. Then hearing the stories of every day people like myself, on small incomes and credit issues that became home owners I decided that I was not going to rent anymore. I called my bank that evening and couldn’t believe that we were approved for a mortgage on my husbands small income of $30k. This was a shock as we were finding it difficult to even get people to rent to us on this income. With the guidance of your book I shopped around for different mortgages and was able to understand the mortgage jargon that banks use. I want to especially thank you for explaining the mortgage jargon as the banks assume you know what an APR and ARM is, even when you say you are a first time homebuyer. We than started saving for the downpayment. We cut back on premium cable, going out to dinner and I stopped clothes shopping!! We even moved in with my husbands parents to save and as hard as it seems sometime to live with relatives the joy of knowing that we will become home owners in a few months is worth the sacrifice. I have now just been searching for our first home knowing that we can own a home and I have you to thank for this. Similarly to yourself I would like to help other people become homeowners and I have been working on a presentation that I would like to give to renters on small incomes like myself to show them too just how easy it can be to become a home owner. I am looking forward to starting 2007 just knowing that by the time 2008 comes round I will be sending you another email from our first home.
