“We can never thank you enough! You have been so amazing through this process from answering all our questions, to giving us reassurances that we can do this! You NEVER let us down, you were always there, even at 10PM, calling me back to walk me through documents, to listening to my meltdowns. You made this process a breeze, and it was nice to have someone always in our corner!” 

Many Thanks and Blessings!

Always,

The McWherter Family

Grants

March 18, 2018 - Lakeland, FL  Florida high school math teacher and first time home buyer, Wanda Miller, is the latest recipient of the Teacher Next Door housing grant.  On Friday, Wanda and her family closed on their new home in Lakeland and received over $5,000 in home buyer assistance through the Teacher Next Door Program.    

 

Often, saving for a down payment is the biggest challenge facing first time home buyers.  Teacher Next Door is the largest National Home Buying Program in the U.S. Through this nationwide program, teachers may receive grants, downpayment assistance and other benefits to help them achieve the dream of home ownership.  While many program participants are first time home buyers, this is not a prerequisite to participate.

The Teacher Next Door Program is not just for classroom teachers.  All school employees, including support staff and administration are eligible for the program and receive the same benefits, with the exception of HUD's GoodNeighbor Next Door program, which has additional limitations.

Other public servants, such as nurses, law enforcement and firefighters, are included as well.  For a complete list, CLICK HERE.

Tonight we finally got to unlock the door to our new home. We’re so grateful to all of you—especially Skye for showing up at every turn.

I know you all put up with a lot of worry and questions from me. Remember, for many this is a new language. I’m grateful to each of you for answering my questions and guiding the way. (Especially over text, Kendall!)

We will love this home deeply and will send photos once it’s decorated.

Here is what I wrote on Facebook tonight...

Today, we closed on our first home. We had a picnic dinner on our living room. Then David went to middle school orientation(yikes!) for O. The girls and I took Steel on a 2 min walk to the park next to our home. We’ve been there 100s of times. But tonight, as I watched the girls play with friends, the Sandias turn pink, and the sunset, it felt different. It felt like home. Our home...

Thank you for the kind words and congratulations on your new home! Shout out to TND Realtor Skye White and TND Loan Officer / Program Specialists Kendall Grady!

According to a recent Forbes Magazine article, "Why Home Ownership Matters'" The average U.S. homeowner's new worth is an astounding $190,000.00 higher than the average renter.  While local markets vary, the national median home price continues to climb each year, even during recessions.

In addition to building equity and in turn, net worth, there are many other benefits to owning your own home.  Such as:

Tax benefits - mortgage interest and property tax are allowed IRS deductions.

Stabilizing your housing payment - While rent may increase every year, your fixed mortgage housing payment remains the same.  In fact, since most people's income tends to increase, your housing payment may soon be a lower percentage of your monthly budget.    

Greater privacy - Most people enjoy greater privacy when owning a home.

Pride of home ownership - Nothing compares to owning a home and being part of a local community.

One of the biggest challenges facing teachers and other school employees is coming up with a down payment.  Teacher Next Door helps alleviate this problem by offering GRANTS, down payment assistance and other programs.  Current grant amounts are up to $6,000.00 and down payment assistance can be as much as $10,681.00

There has never been a better time in history to purchase a home.  If you would like information on these various programs, click on the appropriate link below.
