I would like to welcome you to the Down Payment Movement.
This is a collaboration of personal finance bloggers from all across the United States who are teaming up to help you — yes, you — save up for your down payment, walk with you and succeed together.
We’re bringing people together. We have a goal to motivate our readers to save up $1 million dollars in total over the next year. We have a lot of great stories, tips and information to share with you, and we hope you’ll join us.
If you’re wondering why we started this and how it all works, just keep reading for more information about the movement and what it means to you.
Why did we create the Down Payment Movement?
As personal finance bloggers, we have dedicated many hours of our lives to educating our readers and helping them become more confident in their finances. My life motto is” to enrich, encourage and empower. I will be doing the encouragement part of that with the Down Payment Movement.
Lately, we’ve heard from more readers — not to mention friends and family — saying that they cannot afford to buy a home even though they greatly would like to accomplish this goal.
We’ve also read news clipping conjecturing that today’s first-time home buyers are facing unprecedented challenges when it comes to saving up for and purchasing a home.
The reports have titles like “Why Millennials Can’t Afford to Buy a Home” or “Millennial Home Buyers Are Here, But Their Struggle is Real.” Although these may be realities the more we glorify, share and speak into these “struggles” the more they will come to fruition.
That Changes Today.
We will be breathing new life into you and your endeavor on owning your own home.
We will support you in the (not so) fun parts of this movement.
We will be here for questions and will share in your successes as I know for a FACT they will happen.
How will the Down Payment Movement help you?
When you sign up for the Down Payment Movement, you’re no longer doing this alone. You have a group of people who are rooting for you to succeed. We will support, hold each other accountable and be the best community group of people wanting to accomplish the same goal – First Time Ownership. Man, that rolls off the tongue so nicely.
