My daughter purchased her 3 bedroom west-Madison condo through Movin Out, around 7 years ago. Movin Out was able to arrange around $60,000 of no interest loans or grants to help with that purchase, so her bank loan was small enough to cut her total housing costs by nearly 1/2. Now she pays around $1100 per month for all housing costs, including: utilities, WiFi, TV cable and mortgage (the bank loan, real estate taxes and home insurance). In comparison, when renting she was paying $1000 for rent, alone. As a home owner she has far more space, privacy, quiet and security than she had as a renter. My daughter is currently looking for a compatible, female housemate to split the $1100 monthly home expenses, so if you are interested in paying only $550 per month for all housing expense, you can learn more by calling me at 608-333-3101. Please note that the housemate has the entire second floor (two bedrooms and bath), incase accessibility must be considered.
