I’m trying to get the money to purchase a home again. My teenage sons got involved with the wrong crowd at the age of 15 and was a witness to a homicide. Once it was known that he testified against the person that committed the murder he was attacked at school and my house was being targeted and vandalized. I had to pull my son out of school, sold my home and moved us out of the city. What little equity I had in my home went towards the move and paying for my sons hospital biil’s from being attacked and then for rehab. I then fell into my own medical issues and had 3 surgeries and lost my job for being out on leave for too long. FMLA only saved my job for so long. I’m finally working again but struggling with my medical bill’s now. It’s more expensive to rent than to own a home which is crazy to me. Just wanting to get back to where I was. I can get approved for a home with $7000 down payment/possible closing cost. My goal is to ask seller to pay or assist in paying closing cost if possible.
