Jesse Maxwell Purchased His Home Debt-Free!

We’re very excited to share with you that Jesse purchased his house debt-free this month!

Jesse (23) worked hard to save over the past years and be wise with his expenditures. Also, living at home and no rent charged enabled him to save even faster. Dad and Mom are so gracious to provide for us in that way!

So, how did this come about? Jesse’s been watching the housing market for a while. Last year, he considered a house, but after some time, he saw it wasn’t a good fit. Then, in May, we had some friends over, and as part of the conversation, they casually mentioned the house next door to them, and that it was a rental house.

Jesse had the idea to contact the owner to see if he was at all interested in selling, and would you believe, the man was just about to list his house?! Every part of the process went smoothly. We praise the Lord for this exciting answer to prayer–and a fulfillment of a vision my dad had for his sons!

Jesse plans to use the house as a rental until he needs it, and he’s not in a relationship.

I strongly recommend two resources (Preparing Sons and Buying a House Debt-Free). My parents share practically how they prepared my brothers not only to provide for their future family but also how they encouraged them to buy a house debt-free.

Buying a House Debt-Free

“… and the borrower is servant to the lender.”
Proverbs 22:7

  1. Wow!

    Congrats Jesse: what an achievement! Will the place need renovating, or is it ready to be rented?

    Many blessings,

    Alice

  2. To God be the Glory! We are rejoicing with Jesse! What a great encouragement this is and will be in the future days of our 3 sons! We have both books and are gleaning much wisdom and are putting into practice these wonderful biblical principles! We hope to one day add to the testimonies of Gods goodness in preparing our sons to provide for a single-income family and purchase a home debt-free! Proverbs 19:23 “The fear of the Lord tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.”
    Love to you this day Sarah, pray for you often!

  3. Congratulations to Jesse!

    On a related note (from the signing picture) I never noticed before that he is left-handed. Just out of curiosity, how many of you are?

  4. Praise the Lord!! We are so thrilled for Jesse. Such amazing inspiration to see young men saving and following through with the vision before them. And very smart to rent it out until you need it!

  5. Congrats to Jesse! I read this to my children today as an encouragement. They are all putting a portion of whatever money they get into a house envelope. Of course they are young and have a long way to go, but reading your brothers’ stories helps fuel the fire to save for their future homes!

  6. Congrats to Jesse. That is a great accomplishment. I have a question for y’all. I have been following your blog since right before Susannah was born. I have celebrated and cried with your posts.

  7. It is wonderful that Jesse is so dedicated and committed that he was able to have money saved to buy a house when the opportunity came. So many young people get distracted by materialistic things instead of their future married lives.

    We only have daughters, but we just bought our oldest (11 years old) a hope chest so soon she can start saving money to fill it up with things for her wedding and future home. Do you have any words of encouragement or tips for girls and young ladies how they can avoid frivolous spending and save for their future married lives as well?

  8. Congratulations to Jesse! That’s a very wise investment and good planning to rent it out until he is ready to live there. We will all look forward to seeing before and after pictures!

  9. Praise God! Congratulations Jesse. It is inspiring watching each of you men purchase a home debt free and seeing God bless your parents vision. I love the way He provides in unique ways when we seek to honor Him.

  10. Our 3 boys are inspired by this as well, it’s so important for children to see the outcome of faithfulness. Thanks Jesse and Sarah for your fine example. It shows that these things CAN be done. How encouraging and refreshing. 🙂 🙂 🙂 Keep up the devotion!

    1. So glad it was an encouragement! Yes, these things can be done, one step at a time! Jesse was faithful in saving and being a wise steward, and it’s exciting to now see him as a homeowner! Your guys can do it too!
