Our Financial Capabilities Counselor, Joel Zwier, sat down with his client, Amy Yoder, and asked about her experience with LaCasa.
A: “During the Money for Life class we went over a worksheet that dealt with assets and I listed my assets. I quickly realized I was doing better than I thought. This helped me feel more secure in my path forward. Another positive impact was the one-on-one coaching. Learning to set goals and keep to them. Disciplining myself. Is it a need or a want? Trying to be responsible with how I manage my money.”
Q: Were there any surprises or challenges along your way to homeownership?
A: “I was surprised about how much home I could afford when LaCasa did the calculations. But I knew that I was uncomfortable with that high of a monthly payment. My biggest challenge was finding a home with 3 bedrooms within my price range in this market. It took me 11 months to find the right place.“
Q: Might you have been able to do this on your own?
A: “I absolutely would not have been able to achieve this goal without the help and support of LaCasa.”
