Single Mom Achieves Homeownership Dream

By OHFA Communications

As a single mom of three, Melissa wanted to show her kids that anything was possible.

“I still have two children living at home and wanted them to experience once again living in a home that we owned,” she said.

Though Melissa knew she could easily afford a mortgage, saving for a down payment proved challenging. A quick internet search directed her to the OHFA website and the OHFA Homebuyer Down Payment Assistance Program.

Melissa stands in her kitchen, her favorite room in the house.

“With OHFA Down Payment Assistance, my dream of home ownership became a reality.”

Melissa enjoys cooking in her open kitchen. “I can be talking to people at the table or the breakfast bar while I’m in the kitchen. In addition, the view from my kitchen window is beautiful!”

OHFA offers 3.5% down payment assistance to first-time and repeat buyers across the State of Oklahoma.
