Home inspections are key to ensuring a new home is safe and affordable
Help us Keep The Joy Fund Possible
The Joy Fund was established in March of 2022 to assist first-time home buyers in Washington County make the transition to homeownership by providing funds for home inspections related to a home purchase. Georgiana (Georgie) Kendall, a 5th generation Downeaster, started this fund to support folks who would like to live, work and play here in Washington County. Home ownership is the most expensive & important investment an individual can make in themselves, their future, their family, and their community.
"As a first-time homebuyer over 10 years ago, a fund like this would have ensured that I was able to get an inspection on the biggest purchase of my life. I'm so excited to share this new opportunity with first-time Washington County buyers," - Sara M., Lubec, ME
The Joy Fund will award up to $1,000 per calendar year towards the inspection(s) of a residence during the transition months between making an offer and closing on a house. Help us keep this fund going with your donation.
