Harper Woods, MI – New Hope Community Development

This single-family bungalow was purchased by New Hope Community Development through the NSI First Look program.

The new home buyer completed homebuyer counseling and is thrilled with the purchase of her home. “My home search was a long and stressful ordeal and I am grateful that my offer was accepted and I was able to purchase this home,” she said. “My mother passed away last year and left me an inheritance and I know she would be happy to know I purchased this beautiful home just in time for the New Year! I want to get married next year and I know this house is just perfect for me and my fiancé.”

New Hope spent more than $59,000 in renovating this 1940’s home, which had a tremendous amount of water damage due to an ongoing leaking roof, and that led to mold throughout. In addition to a new roof and mold remediation, updates included plumbing repairs, new drywall throughout, fresh paint, new carpet, new tile floors, a new bathroom vanity, and new countertops.

She added, “The folks at New Hope Community Development were nothing but accommodating to me. Not only did they do a fantastic job renovating the home, but they also assisted me with all of the repairs we requested. They even paid for my closing costs!”
