Joseph and Jade had been happy as long-term tenants of the Burkentine Property, The Woods at Dew Drop community in York, PA. Once they had a son, they searched for a home to call their own. Like so many other young families, finding the right house in such a competitive housing market was challenging.
That’s when they discovered Burkentine Builders had a new townhome community at Hudson Ridge in Red Lion, PA. Burkentine partnered with the charitable organization, Homes 4 HOPE. It was a company they trusted and a cause they could get behind. Jade commented on the chance to give back saying, “The fact that this is our first home and it’s the only Homes 4 HOPE home in this neighborhood… I mean, that just kind of put the icing on top of the cake because I mean, to be a part of something that’s so important and so meaningful, especially with everything going on in the world right now, it just really meant a lot to us for them to involve us.”
About Homes 4 HOPE:
“Burkentine Builders and their suppliers come together to donate or discount their time, talents and resources on an upcoming build and then take the profit that is generated from the sale of that home and donate it to Homes 4 HOPE, which enables us to provide biblically-based training, savings services and loans for entrepreneurs who are living in poverty around the world. It truly is entrepreneurs investing in entrepreneurs.” – Matthew Baehr, Executive Director, Homes 4 HOPE.
Jade and Joseph closed on the townhome located in the Hudson Ridge community in Red Lion, PA. Forty thousand dollars from the sale of the property will provide services to 1,600 families initially, and more beyond that as the loans get repaid.
Making it Possible From offer through closing:
Burkentine Real Estate Group is a one-stop shop, that streamlined the process using their own settlement company – Yorktowne Settlement Company. Jade and Joseph were approved through the preferred lender’s program, allowing Burkentine Real Estate Group to provide personalized service from the offer through closing. According to Joseph, “They worked with us. They said that we have a home for you here no matter what. And that meant a lot because a lot of the people turned us away, even just kind of walking into it. So, um, you know, that, that was special for me, you know, for someone to invest and believe that we were able to one day become homeowners, and here we are.”
