The house which I have been living in for the last 3 years is being sold and I have the option to buy it. This would be the first time that I have bought a house and I just turned 45 years old. I have put a lot of work into the house and yard and have doubled the value of the home and property. It's the lush tropical backyard I installed over the course of 2 years which really brought this property to life. The rental company thinks so too. They have decided to put the house on the market. If it is sold, I will have to move out and it is going to be very hard to take the yard with me. Yes, I know what you're thinking... Why did I put so much effort into a rental?
When you take pride in your home you are investing in the strength of your neighborhood and commuinty. I live in Southwest Florida and spend most of my time outside so it's nice to come home to a relaxing space after work as well as having company on weekends.
My rental company is giving me the opportunity to purchase this home before putting it on the market. To do so, I need to come up with $8,000 for a down payment on this house. I am living paycheck to paycheck and coming up with an extra eight thousand dollars is an impossibility that makes me nauseous just thinking about it. I am setting aside as much as I can while still paying $800 a month rent and all the other bills that keep lights on and my car moving.
I have never been one to ask for help and have put this off 3 times already as I have always been able to figure out something. I feel awkward and selfish putting this up here with all the other the great causes looking for funding but I won't know if I don't try. So, here it goes: I am asking for YOUR help to fund a $8,000 deposit to purchase my first house so I can continue living in the place I've made my home. Thank you.
