— Kellie Corwin bought her Raleigh home last summer.

“It was stressful,” Corwin said.

She and her partner were renting the home when they began their housing search. After opportunities fell through, they talked to their landlord and bought the house from them.

Even though Corwin lives with a partner, she took out a loan for the house by herself.

“It just made sense, with our income, for me to be the one financially responsible,” she said.
