As a young person new to the workforce, Mandy assumed that homeownership was probably out of her reach in the near future, however, she decided to check out the house market in Moose Jaw to confirm this. She found that any properties in her price range would require quite a bit work – something that Mandy is neither capable nor willing to take on. Her real estate agent suggested that she look at HeadStart on a Home’s Plaxton Ridge Condominium project in Moose Jaw – and suddenly the distant dream of homeownership became possible.

Plaxton Developments Inc. presented Mandy with layouts and details about the unit, and she purchased her home even before construction was complete. She is very excited that there will be no maintenance or work required, and that they are brand-new with warranty. Mandy also qualified for down payment assistance through the Government of Saskatchewan’s Affordable Home Ownership Program through the City of Moose Jaw, which will cover her entire down payment.

After completing her Bachelor of Kinesiology degree at the University of Regina, Mandy received her Psychiatric Nursing diploma at SIAST Wascana Campus in December of 2011. Mandy had grown up in a small town southeast of Moose Jaw, and was happy to find work close to home after her post-secondary education. She moved into a rental in Moose Jaw and currently works at Moose Jaw Hospital and Providence Place, a long-term care facility.

Mandy moved into her new home in November 2012 and is thrilled to become a homeowner so early in her career and life after her post-secondary education.
