Kathy's life took a pleasant turn when she met her now-husband, Scott. In addition to his son and her three boys, they welcomed two sets of twins, "We kind of became the Brady Bunch." 

Their growing family came with a pressing need — to find a new home as quickly as possible. She knew she wanted a spacious house, a guest room to care for her aging mother, and a pool to help beat the California heat. Working on a tight timeline, she purchased a property that ticked all her boxes but wasn't her dream home.

Point's Home Equity Investment (HEI) gave Kathy the financial power to invest $75,000 into reshaping her home. By partnering with Point, she was able to repaint the house, renovate the landscape, remodel the pool, and tackle necessary repairs.

Kathy's financial empowerment didn't stop there. With her leftover funds, she was able to cover unexpected auto issues, buy a new car for her son, and bolster her emergency fund: "It's nice having this savings, I don't have to panic if something comes up." Now, Kathy can make memories with her family in a place she's proud to call home, with a financial safety net that helps her feel secure.
