Meet our Home for the Holidays homeowner: Ebony
Ebony has lived in the same condominium for the last 10 years.
She was used to her rent increasing by $25 or $50 every year. She didn’t bat an eye.
But this past year, she got a renewal notice that showed a $400 hike — a 33% increase. That was the moment she decided to get serious about becoming a homeowner.
“I looked into homeownership for the stability because when you’re renting, they can just increase it how they want to, when they want to,” she said.
