After a devastating divorce, Calandra rented her apartment for 14 years. Post-divorce, she worked hard to pay off her debt and rebuild her finances.

A few months ago, Calandra had the urge purge. She gave away her clothes and her furniture to make room for new, positive energy. She made plans to travel and do things she had always wanted to do. She also decided to buy her own home.

Calandra and her realtor covered a lot of ground. They looked at many homes, old and new. Although the purchase prices seemed doable, Calandra saw HOA fees and other costs pushing her mortgage beyond her comfort zone.

Then she found Urban 360°° with no HOA fees. Calandra didn’t hesitate to reserve her lot. When asked if she wanted to apply for the down payment loan assistance from the City of Tampa, her first reaction was to decline. She expected it to be more hassle than it was worth.

When Juan mentioned it could be as much as $15,000, she changed her mind. The loan process was much easier than expected with Belix navigating for her. She received $15,000 towards her down payment, and after she’s in her home 10 years, the loan will be forgiven.

Now that Calandra is moved in and reveling in positive energy, she’s pursuing her next goal — a trip to Greece. Opa!
