“Betsy was on a Mission to Own a Home”

 “Betsy was on a Mission to Own a Home”



I referred Betsy to you over a year ago; she is now ready to buy. She followed your advice and saved $10k, so it sounds like she has the down payment plus some closing costs. She is willing to offer $190k on a HUD property and borrow $200k to do the 203k repairs for some plumbing issues.


It took her just over a year to save up enough money for a down payment and some closing costs. This is a good lesson for all of us. This gal had no savings, but had a powerful commitment to own a home for her family.


This is a perfect example of a commitment being more powerful than having no money. It is so clear that when we commit ourselves to something that is truly important to us we can accomplish almost anything.

Good morning Joe.

Motivation is one powerful incentive to get the job done.  Sounds like she stayed focused on her goal

Good morning, Joe Petrowsky .  Before  we can have what we want, we have to know what we want.  Betsy's result exemplifies the power of desire to propel an idea into a tangible result.  Thank you for sharing this motivating story.

This hits on one of the best reasons to own a home. It caused the lady to evaluate her budget and her spending to focus on what is most important.

Commitment is the key.  Those who are committed will do what it takes. Those who are only interested will not.  Well done!
