March 2017 was truly a whirlwind month for the HOPE VI Homeownership program! Our 7th, 8th and 9th homes sold in less than three weeks time, between March 10 and March 30, 2017!
Paul is our 7th HOPE VI home buyer! He is presently studying to be an electrician and apprentices full-time with a local construction firm. As a former military veteran, Paul is ready to move forward with his life by starting a new career and buying a new home! Like previous HOPE VI homebuyers, Paul was excited at the prospect of being able to afford a new home in a growing area. Paul’s work takes him all over Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky and Covington is an ideal location!
Nicole is our 8th HOPE VI home buyer and a real go-getter! She is a mother, owner of a cleaning franchise, and works full-time in nursing at a Cincinnati hospital.
Nicole applied for the HOPE VI homeownership program after living in Newport with her children for years. She always wanted to own her own home but wasn’t certain it was within reach. However, after working through the process, Nicole was approved for the program! She even qualified for a special grant from the Federal Home Loan Bank! We truly enjoyed serving Nicole and her family and helping their dreams come true!
Last but not least, Daniel is our 9th home buyer in the HOPE VI homeownership program.
Daniel is a young professional who currently works in the marketing field. While searching for a home with his realtor, he learned about the HOPE VI homeownership program. He wanted a small, modest home, but not a super fixer-upper! The HOPE VI homeownership program was the answer! Daniel qualified for a brand new home close to all the things he needs and loves!
Congratulations again to all three of our most recent HOPE VI home buyers --- Paul, Nicole and Daniel ----and best wishes to all of you for many happy years in your new home!
With the sale of our ninth home, the HOPE VI homeownership program is drawing to a close. We want to take this opportunity to thank our many wonderful partners for making the HOPE VI Homeownership program a success! Many individuals and families were given the chance of the American Dream thanks to their efforts.
