Yartiza Velazquez, Homeowner
I started working on building my credit. She [Raquel, SCH Housing Counselor], gave me tips and advice on how to start doing that. Six months later I got pre-approved. My credit was up and I was able to start looking for a home. The downpayment assistance that I received to purchase my home helped me tremendously. Once purchasing my home I only had to give $50 for my downpayment.
