Paul and Noni Spitzenberger knew their one-bedroom apartment on Beacon Hill would soon be too small for raising their 18-month-old daughter Gwen. But even though Paul works two jobs, it never occurred to them that they could buy their own home.

“Our neighbors have two kids Gwen’s age. There’s a park a block away for her to play in, and one day she can go to the school just down the street. We are really looking forward to watching her grow up here.”

“We were just looking for another place to rent” when they came across Homestead, Paul says. When they read that they could afford to own their first home, Noni says that “at first we didn’t believe it.”

Now they own a three bedroom home in Columbia City, “and we pay about the same per month that we did for our basement apartment,” according to Paul. When asked if he would recommend Homestead to other people who are renting, he says, “I already have, to one of my co-workers, and he’s already applied. A lot of people are completely discouraged and don’t bother to try buying a home. There are thousands of people out there that should know about Homestead.”
