First-time Home-buyers - need help with closing costs

From Adriana Culverhouse

We need help with closing costs for our first home. Donations will go directly to closing costs, which include origination fees, appraisal, title, title insurance, survey of the house, etc.

More Info

Just a little background, I'm a full-time English/Education student and also work full-time. My husband, Christian, is a working, disabled Marine Corps vet.

Our situation recently changed when the owner of the house we're currently living in decided they're going to sell it. It was a bit of a late notice and really pulled the rug from under our feet.

We've looked strenuously for places to rent, but we have four fur-babies, two dogs and two cats, which puts us at a negative disposition when needing to rent. Most places charge ridiculous fees for pets, and some restrict it to one or two pets allowed. Our only real option is home-buying.

We're forced to find a new home within the next few months (or possibly sooner if the house gets sold right away), and that doesn't give us a lot of time to scrape the closing costs together, which is typically paid out-of-pocket or gifted by family.

Neither of us come from affluent families, so therefore, we're turning to you.
