Additional Posts in Homeownership for Teachers
Good morning women in tech! 💜 I’ve been on Fishbowl for around a week now and I’ve learnt so many great things from the community. It would be amazing to understand:
💜 If you could give one piece of advice to women in tech, what would it be?
💜 What’s the best thing you’ve learnt from women in tech?
Happy Friday all!!
I have receiver platforms available for manual punch, all modes and protocols of POS card transactions (4digits & 6-digits), Ledger-to-Ledger (L2L), IP/IP and Server-to-Server (S2S).
That’ll be $35MM, thank you.
I have liked some guy for a while and we have gone on dates and hooked up on and off for three years now. However, I haven’t seen him in a year, but he recently asked me out for coffee. I’m not sure I want to grab coffee because I feel like it should be something special (dinner etc) and I don’t want to be friend-zoned. Am I just overthinking things??? Lol
Has anyone come close to divorce or losing their family from this job? I am in audit and big 4 but I assume it applies to all major services and most firms.
Best gym headphones? Bluetooth preferable
Hey guys, I'm a recent graduate trying to get into a Data Analyst Position. I mainly use Python, SQL, Excel for my projects. What would you recommend I add to the list to learn that will better my chances at landing a job? I don't have any experience this is my first tech job I am trying to apply for.
Has anyone countered their promotional salary increase? C to SC. If so, what negotiation experience did you have?
Hello Fellow Fishbowlers! Have 5 years before retiring at age 60. I WANNA DO SOMETHING FUN for the next 5-6 years! :) Can I get an insight on such a possible job (I know it’s a long shot!). Also, looking into the Care Coordinator role and/or related roles. Anyone doing it and Hating or Loving it? Also, shout out if you’re doing something that you enjoy doing everyday! (My job closed it’s doors after 16 years and I’m looking for something interesting to do daily). Thanks y’all!
Anyone have any insight into Creative X (Facebook’s in-house agency)? Work/life balance? Culture? Pros/Cons?
I feel that I can say without a doubt that the guy who just presented the exact same concept for the 3rd pitch in a row is literally history's greatest monster.
It’s my first time doing account and I am wondering if you could share some of the things you like most about your job as well as the skills you have built by being in account. Thank you in advance for pumping me up!
Brutal week. That is all.

How does your help help with interest rates if we're only putting 10% down. In addition to a meager down payment, I also worry abt interest :( Definitely didn't get into this for the money
Over the next couple days, my colleague Jess (who heads all our customer experience work) and I will be popping in and out to take questions on the topic of becoming a homeowner. Hope we’re helpful!
I recently closed on a home and felt like I had to claw for 10% of my downpayment - didn't do 20. Do you think it was a mistake to not do 20? It just seems impossible as a teacher.
My fiancé and I are planning to buy a home right around our wedding (we’d need to close next June). Has anyone heard of special programs we can look into? He’s military so we have VA Financing...
Landed’s been working with the College Football Playoff Foundation, and we just gave away another $25,000 to help a Bay Area teacher buy a home. We surprised Jenna, 3rd grade teacher this AM.
I like in Oklahoma where I make 34K per year. Houses aren't that expensive but on top of my other expenses, saving for a house seems nearly impossible.
Signing off for the day! Looking forward to continuing the conversation tomorrow. Keep the questions coming :)
Related to a teacher from Indiana who had to make a big repair, how do you recommend we budget for maintenance? I feel like we can work towards downpayment, but maintenance puts it out of reach.
Hi everyone!! It’s Jess at Landed here. Excited to answer your questions over the next few days with my teammate Alex. Will be popping in and out until Friday - look forward to chatting!
I'm a younger teacher in a high COL area. In terms of wealth building, how does home ownership stack up to other methods like investing in stocks?
What's your favorite story helping someone buy a home? I'm going through the process now and it's so stressful. I need a little positivity :)
Thanks for doing this! How did ya'll at Landed come up with this idea? Super interesting.
Well folks, it’s been real! Loved our stint over the past few days and looking forward to more of this in the near future; you can always find us at Landed.com! Now, get out there and enjoy the weekend! -A&J
What a great conversation so far! I’m headed to a couple meetings but will check back in soon - keep the questions coming!
Good morning everyone! Super excited to join this Fishbowl conversation. I’m one of the co-founders of Landed (Landed.com) and we’re out to help educators build financial security!
My score is 620 nothing outstanding but my student loans are killing me. I cant get approve for a house
I'm a leader in our union and am finding what you're talking abut here pretty interesting. Do you think we should talk to our unions about including home ownership in negotiations? How cld we do this?
Although not everyone we work with at Landed are first time buyers, many are, so we wrote up this post on 10 things a first timer should know: https://www.landed.com/blog/ten-things-a-first-time-homebuyer-should-know
