Darrell saw his mom aging and knew her life saw going to get more difficult. He wanted to provide her with the best possible living situation.

When Darrell heard people talking about the down payment loan assistance from the City of Tampa, he thought this might be the perfect opportunity.

Darrell enrolled in the First-time Homebuyer class. Many of his classmates were excited about Urban 360°°. He started researching homes and connected with a realtor. As he looked at dozens of homes with his realtor, he worried about what it would cost for renovations and repairs. That’s when he decided to switch gears and look at a brand, new home with Urban 360°°.

Darrell preferred the single-story floorplan for his mother. He knew she would enjoy the Master Suite and that the space suited her needs. He is going to enjoy his own room and use the main bathroom.

Darrell worked with Belix on his mortgage application.

“I had some bumps in the road, and Belix was very patient,” says Darrell. “Things kept coming up, and we tackled them together. Belix and Juan were very professional through the entire process.

Darrell and his mom had fun selecting the finishes for their new home and now they are both looking forward to that day when they get the keys.

“My advice to others is to take your time to get your ducks in a row and to choose a really good realtor who is going to have your back,” says Darrell. “It will go smoothly; you just have to be patient.”
