Affordability in housing is a concern of business, government, and residents. With the vacancy rate in Washington County at virtually 0% and home prices skyrocketing, Sun Country Home Solutions expanded its services in 2018 to include affordable housing with projects located in St. George, Hurricane, Washington and Ivins. We hope to continue working with local businesses, city and county government leaders and other non-profits to provide more affordable housing options for the residents of Washington County.
Sun Country Home Solutions, as a HUD certified counseling organization, also offers counseling services to help those that may be interested in purchasing a home, refinancing the home they have or just learning how to manage their family finances better as it relates to the local economy.
During the past year we have counseled 546 families regarding housing options, home financing options, budgeting and family financial management. Of the families counseled, 48% were able to purchase a new home or refinance their home for more affordable payments. Another 22% are in process and will likely purchase or refinance within the next 60 days. The remaining 30% may remain in their current housing situation but have come away with a better understanding of budgeting and the home buying process.
We also provide reverse mortgage counseling to seniors considering a reverse mortgage to help them make an informed financial decision regarding their financial circumstances now and in the future. During 2017, we counseled 660 seniors.
Recently, we started a financial literacy and homebuyer’s education classes . Homebuyer education can help borrowers improve their credit score and understand everything related to buying a home.
Our goal is to help families become homeowners while ensuring they don’t get in over their heads which can stress the family budget by buying a home that is too expensive. It also gives homebuyers the tools they need to bounce back should something go wrong after the purchase is made.
We also offer foreclosure prevention counseling where we help secure a loan modification if possible, and stay in their homes when they have experienced a life event such as job loss or illness.
We improve neighborhoods and communities by promoting pathways to homeownership, providing affordable housing solutions, improving housing quality, upgrading and maintaining high quality rentals and promoting neighborhood pride and unity.
The 2013 990 tax return is available upon request.
