Government Grants

4 Replies

I am starting out with a Duplex.  It needs some minor and some major renovations.  My father is current owner, so as soon as I nail down financing, the whole process should be very smooth.  My father has owned it for 10 years now.  He really didn't know what he was doing.  I feel like I have more potential because I'll be starting at a much younger age, and I have Bigger Pockets!

I've looked at a few different options of financing, but for the purpose of this post I'll get straight to the point.  I entered some contact information on the following website, but backed out before paying for it because I thought it was a scam.  A few days later I got a phone call from a lady that said she worked for the government.  She sounded very legitimate.  It kind of shifted my outlook and I'm considering this again.  

I am just wondering if anyone out there has used this or has any knowledge of it being good or bad.

Thank you for the feedback!

Looks like a scam to me. It is not a governament site, but they made it to look like one. 

She also told me about this site

http://www.grants.gov

and said that the only reason the first one was a ".com" is because they're selling a product.  The people that made that site are contracted through the government.
