We are so happy to have you as part of the Downstreet family! Owning your own home is a big deal, and we want to make sure that you know we're here for you if you have any questions during your time as a home-owner.
Information about COVID-19
Downstreet's HomeOwnership Center will continue to conduct business over the phone and via email during this time of social distancing. If you have an appointment scheduled with our HomeOwnership Center staff, they will contact you to move your meeting to the phone. If you need to take a Purchase Ready Workshop, you can do so online through e-Home America. Please reach out to Kira, Cheryl, or Pattie if you have questions about our continuing HomeOwnership Center services during this time.
Difficulty Paying Your Mortgage?
As a result of the COVID-19 epidemic, some are experiencing a lower income than usual, making it difficult to keep up with household finances like a monthly mortgage. If you find yourself in this situation, we want you to be aware that there are options you may be able to use in order to navigate these uncertain times.
If you have fallen behind on your mortgage, or if your mortgage is coming out of forbearance, our HUD-certified Housing Advisors are here to help guide you. We will teach you how to:
- Reduce your debt
- Create habits to build savings
- Strengthen your credit score
- Keep your finances healthy with a custom household budget
Post Purchase Workshop
If you are like most home buyers, you were so focused on the home purchase process, you may be unsure of what to do now that you’ve achieved your goal of owning a home.
Not to worry! We are here to help! After months of collaboration with local agencies, we are proud to present our Post Purchase Workshop! Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 we have had to delay our first workshop until it is safe to gather together without spreading the virus. We will update this information as soon as we have it, so please do check back!
