Well that stimulus money is starting to trickle down to individual states, hoping to help stimulate the housing industry. The latest one is the ability to get free grant money for home improvements, if you are buying a foreclosure home.
Every day when I drive around my neighborhood or look in the paper I see a lot of foreclosure homes. You can probably pick them out in your neck of the woods too. They are the ones with the overgrown grass or maybe the mailbox has been knocked down. You never see any cars or people at the house and it just looks…desolate.
Many people got way over their heads on these no money down or no document loans, which is what caused all this mess. Needless to say, these people are either losing their home because they cannot afford the payments or just walking away from them because they owe more than what they are worth. This turn of events is a blessing to anyone looking for a home as you can get in for so much less now plus the government is giving free money out to anyone who qualifies and wants to buy one of these foreclosure homes.
Now, some of these homes will be beaten down and not qualify but others will be in pretty good shape. If you qualify for the government money, you will receive $50,000 to buy one of these homes, which has to be used on the home in a variety of ways including using this free grant money for home improvements. Whether it is a remodeled bathroom or kitchen or a new roof. Whatever is deemed as a necessary improvement, you can use that money for it.
I know you may think this is too good to be true, but every once in a while something great comes along but if you do not jump on it, you will miss out. Make sure you find out if this money is available to you in your area and if you qualify. The government is always giving out grant money for one thing or another, but if you do not know that money is available to you and know how to go about getting it, you will be left behind empty handed.
You just have to find out if you qualify for some free grant money. You owe it to yourself.
