Going from traditional institutions to WCDA has been like living in black and white, and suddenly opening a door to a world of color. Buying a new home is not something that everybody gets the chance to experience. For a long time, I wasn’t sure I would get the chance to experience it. It was something I always wanted, but I wasn’t sure when, or if, it was going to happen. I also didn’t know if I’d be able to do it on my own. Luckily, with WCDA, I was never alone.

I had been talking to a friend of mine who was in the process of putting her home up for sale. Her encouragement motivated me to start the pre-approval process with my bank and, because I was a potential first-time home buyer, they informed me that I may be able to qualify for a WCDA home loan. Various friends and family members had gone this route and had nothing but good things to say. Between working with my mortgage company and the wonderful people at WCDA, I was approved for a loan. And then, almost as if by magic or something like it, I was a home owner. WCDA offered so much helpful information. One of the best things about WCDA is that they offer courses and classes designed to help with the process of buying and owning a house. There are a lot of questions that come with this big life step, and WCDA answered every single one of them. If I could offer any advice, it would be to consider going to WCDA first, before consulting a bank or mortgage company.

Even with the daily life challenges, and maybe the occasional broomstick in the way, it’s always nice to come to a place that I can call home. Being able to walk into my own home at the end of a long day, looking around and knowing that this is mine- there’s no feeling like it. This is something I have wanted, something I have worked towards for a long time. I followed many yellow brick roads on the way to this opportunity, but it has been so fulfilling and even more exciting than I ever imagined. I’m glad I had the courage to take a chance on myself. Anyone with a brain knows that WCDA is the place to go for first-time home buyers. I had my heart set on owning my own home and, because of WCDA, I was able to do just that. I feel so fortunate that I was able to experience such a wonderful and life-changing event, seemingly with just 3 clicks of my heels. WCDA gave me a home and, as one certain young lady once said…

There’s no place like home.
