Every day you work hard to make a better life for yourself and your family. Homeownership is still one of the best ways to invest in your future and improve your quality of life. In fact, the Bipartisan Policy Center's Housing Commission notes that homeownership can "produce powerful economic, social, and civic benefits that serve the individual homeowner, the larger community, and the nation.” Mortgage interest rates continue at historic lows and there is no better time to purchase a home in Washington, DC, one of the greatest American cities.
