The Dream Of Getting A House Of My Own

I don’t know about you but when I was still young, I want to own a house. When my sister decided to loan a house through SSS, it was the time that I can feel the privacy, I don’t have to be scared to get kicked anytime, you see we were always moving in every now and then. We moved in to the house that my sister loan when I was about to be in college. That time I thought the subdivision we moved in is the farthest but now it is becoming one of the nearest. I moved out from that house when Mj was 5 years old. I got a fight with my sister, so even if I partly owned the house I just let her be and rented a house together .with my other sister.

We stayed there for a year until I decided to loan a house through Pag-Ibig. I was working in a pioneering call center that time. I decided to loan a house because of the thought that if it will be my name on it, no one will be able to steal it from me. But few years after, since my kids are growing up, it was hard already to live with a sister together with her family. We can’t avoid getting a fight because of the kids. So I thought to rent a house in the same village.

I didn’t try to own a house after we moved out from my house because I thought that we will be joining my husband in the US but since it looks like that it is impossible for us even if it was hard for us in terms of financing, I grabbed the opportunity to assume this house. For one year, our life was tested because of what we owe to the owner of this house and I need to think very quick of I needed to do to save everything until I paid him off. Thank GOD!

In one year of struggle, we were not able to do some repairs of course we need to save for the house. I need to pay the owner pretty quick and we needed a huge amount of money. I was relieved when we paid him off, first thing first I did was to repair the floor tiles, last year I was able to have the sink repaired and we were able to modify the counter to cabinets and I was able to put doors for our closet. Now, I got a huge plan and that is to put an extension and a master’s bedroom. I am saving for it; I hope to do it next year or at least before my husband will go back here. I hope to do it really soon.
