A Holiday Gift For First Time Home Buyers

A recent client of mine was struggling with coming up with all the funds necessary to purchase his first home. He had a steady job, good credit but was short of money. To help him out, I put together a list of organizations that provide support to first time home buyers in Rochester and surrounding areas. He was so appreciative, that I thought this would make a good holiday gift for my readers.
