We are all things home.

November 2019

This is one of our favorite months of the year. It is a wonderful time to reflect upon your present blessings and be thankful for all. Thanksgiving is not just about the turkey and stuffing, but about love and gratitude. It is the perfect time to focus on family and all things home. Our staff at NWWVT will be taking time to generate gratitude and make connections within our community and we wish you all a blessed month and a happy Thanksgiving!

Nancy Gilman, HomeOwnership Director proudly displays her HUD certificate! 

Congratulations Nancy

Nancy Gilman, HomeOwnership Director at NeighborWorks of Western Vermont recently passed the rigorous HUD Housing Counselors Certification Examination, and on the first attempt! This satisfied the HUD Final Rule requirements published in December 2016 that all housing counselors under HUD programs must also have HUD certification by August 1, 2020 - not just the agency as was the previous requirement. This was a big undertaking finding time to study with a busy family and working full-time. Congratulations Nancy! 

Home Receives More Than Facelift

One of our more recent Home Repair Projects involves a home in Lincoln, VT. Home Repair Coordinator, Aaron Jones, managed the project. Beyond the new brilliant finish, the home is now more efficient and it requires significantly less cost for future maintenance.

Homeowner, Maryanne said "I have had two contracts through Neighborworks and can't praise this organization enough. Most recently my homeowner's insurance company refused to continue to insure me because of the condition of my siding and I found myself paying more than double the premium for a high-risk policy through another company.  I applied for help from NWWW. The loan administrator and the home repair coordinator were great, helping to navigate problems and were wonderfully supportive of my needs. Neighborworks also found an outstanding contractor for me who did an amazing job. I'm happy and so are my neighbors. I've never had so many compliments!"

The "closing process" sounds like a daunting task but we can help make it clear! 

Demystifying The Closing Process

The closing process is arguably one of the most important parts of home buying. It is when ownership of the home transfers from seller to the buyer, it’s also when the money changes hands. This can be stressful, but there are ways to make it easier, like planning.

One thing we ALWAYS suggest for any first-time homebuyer is to attend our Homebuyer Education Class. Many of our partnering lenders offer closing discounts for those that have completed the class. To help you plan, we have laid out the main closing process steps from start to finish. Read on to find out more!
