For those asking Santa for a home of there own for next year, this tip from William Feela could go a long way to helping Santa make your wish come true:

Buying a home can be hard.

Putting enough money aside for a down payment can be near impossible.

Well, it is the Christmas season.

Step one is to take the money you were going to spend on each other and put it into the down payment kitty.

Ask family who normally trade gifts to give cash that can be put towards a down payment.

Think hard on this.   Yes, you give up gifts for the time being, but you get closer to that home you want.

 

Sometimes it is the small home that gets you started

What an excellent idea and such a great cause to reblog this Gabe Sanders ! Take it to next level and for the next year, don't buy anything at all except for wrapping your presents made of giving each one money and put it in the kitty.

This is a very good idea. We all spend a lot of money on things we don't really need, and which years from now are forgotten. A home is forever.

Cash gifts towards a down payment on a home is a great holiday idea.

Gabe, nice choice for a reblog, and giving a down payment or closing costs to assist your kids could be a great gift.

Hi Gabe --- it becomes a "game" or "strategy" of priorities.   You offer some excellent food for thought.  Quite satifsying too.

A home is an excellent Christmas Present but it does take sacrifice.

A home is a gift that keeps on giving.

Good luck and success.
