“People see me and say I look 10 years younger. I tell them to buy a PRG house.”
Sudi wanted a home of her own. A single mother with four kids, she needed a stable place to live where there was room for her children and a yard (with a fence) for her young son with autism to play in. Individual pre-purchase housing counseling at PRG was part of Sudi’s journey toward homeownership. These free sessions helped Sudi address a mistake on her credit and prepare for buying a home. After over a year of dedication, Sudi was able to purchase a PRG-developed home.
But Sudi worked hard to get there. Her first step was getting education and knowledge about the homebuying process.
A recent survey of past participants in PRG homebuying education and counseling, showed that 70% of respondents went on to buy homes.
Homebuyer education such as the HomeStretch Workshops offered by PRG helps level the playing field for households looking to become owners. This is particularly helpful for first-time and first-generation homebuyers or those that have been marginalized by systemic racism. Based on our survey, an estimated 300 households of color went on to purchase homes over the last three years after attending PRG homebuyer education.
