Jumping the Hurdle of Homeownership

By Allie Hartzog May 02, 2018

We want the family of every N2 team member to achieve financial wellness. So much so, it’s two-thirds of our mission statement: to honor God, strengthen the family, and create financial wealth for everyone involved.

But, like most things worth doing, achieving financial wealth is easier said than done.There are lots of pieces that need to come together in order to become financially fit. Home ownership – a.k.a. putting rent money into your own pocket, not someone else’s – is a really big piece of this puzzle. And so, if we want to “strengthen the family and create financial wealth for everyone involved,” we’ve got to encourage our team to become homeowners.

But there’s an obvious hurdle here: the down payment.

Jumping Over the Hurdle

A lot of people write themselves out of the homebuying process at the very beginning: when it takes a chunk of cash to prove they’re trustworthy enough to borrow a large sum of money.

We’re committed to helping people clear this barrier to entry.

For our Area Directors, their uncapped pay structure helps many reach a place of financial freedom. In fact, the income potential is one of the biggest reasons people want to become Area Directors in the first place. As a commission-only role, hard work yields great rewards. And with great rewards comes provision for a down payment and the pride of home ownership. But what about our Home Office team members who, in large part, are salaried employees? For them, we started a First-Time Home Buyer Program.

For our full-time team members who have been a part of N2 for at least two years, N2 provides $7,000 as part of a down payment on a first home – a huge step towards financial wealth! This program has been in place since 2017 and has already impacted the lives (and more specifically, the living situations) of 10 N2 team members and their families.

Hurdle Officially Jumped: Meet Amanda

One such team member who has already made a house her own home is Amanda Pudney of our Editing team.

“This program truly helps start my family and fulfills a lifelong dream of mine: to own a home. Dave and I have been together for over four years and are recently engaged. We have been attempting to save for a downpayment on a home, but have been largely unsuccessful with the current rent and bills we pay. The down payment has been the only thing standing in the way of owning a home. Through the homebuying program, we can now achieve our dream of owning a home and are making a solid investment in our future.”

“We can't adequately put into words the gratitude we feel for N2. Without this program, it's safe to say that we would be years away from recognizing the freedom and security owning a home brings. My experience working with N2 shows me how much leadership is invested in team members at every possible opportunity, and the homebuying program exemplifies this. We will be forever grateful for this opportunity to open the door to financial freedom... and to our very own home!”

We believe the hurdle of home ownership should not be too high for those who are working diligently to build a better future for themselves and their family. Our goal through this program is to spread financial freedom and to multiply that impact until every family is heading down the path to building wealth – a path that leads to their very own home.
