Meet Karen Jenkins, MassHousing Borrower

Karen Jenkins had always been a renter until she decided to look into buying her own home. MassHousing helped her learn about the home buying process and then provided her with an affordable mortgage she used to purchase a home in New Bedford. “I wish someone had told me years ago to buy a home," she said. "I made rent payments for a long time and now every penny I spend (on my mortgage) is going toward me. It's a great feeling to have a home to call your own."
