It was all worthwhile
“A lot of the bumps on the road fell on my shoulders”
Arrie purchased her first home with the help of Evergreen Loan Officer Corey Hjalseth. She explains that her process had its ups and downs. “A lot of the bumps on the road fell on my shoulders,” she said of the challenges. Arrie said Corey helped her overcome some of the tough hurdles enabling her to purchase the house she wanted.
Along the way, Arrie learned about how detailed the home loan process is, “You have to account for everything. I should have done more research and prepped better.” She says, if and when the time ever comes for another move, that she now knows of what to do and what not to do when getting a home loan.
Before buying her house, Arrie paid $1,600 a month for a one-bedroom apartment. Her house is brand new and has ample space. She’s excited to be in her new home with three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms.
Arrie likes the location of her house, which is a straight shot to her work. She also enjoys the location because, “It’s culturally diverse and there is a lot of good authentic food.”
Her favorite part of the house, is her new garage. Arrie plans to turn it into a fabrication shop for metal and woodworking. She’s also excited for the gardening she’s now able to do in her front yard. Arrie says owning a home gives her “freedom” to be able to do these things. And that makes it all worthwhile.
