David's quest to get his house back
Organized by: David D'Alessio
Hi everyone, my name is David. My wife and I owned our home in Las Vegas, Nv. We purchased it in 2003. I did all the work on the house myself. I remodeled and updated everything, one room at the time. From tile floors to kitchen cabinets, and my proudest work was an oak bar with black marble top that I built. I did everything, inside and out. It took over 2 years of hard work, I put everything I had into this, including my heart and soul. I was so proud of my accomplishments there, and everyone I had visit me, which is a lot when you live in Las Vegas, all loved it and said it was such a homey very comfortable place to be. The feeling I would get from the compliments I was given was indescribable. Every month I would give her the money for the mortgage, which was $1400 per month, because she was the one who took care of the bills. She was a bookkeeper for her mother's company, and she was good at things like that. My job was doing all the physical labor. So one day I was working in the garage, and a guy walks up and tells me that we were 4 months behind in the mortgage. I told him he was crazy, and must have the wrong house. To satisfy him, I took him inside and confronted my wife about this. And to my amazing surprise, he was right. She admitted to it, and the reason was that she was spending the money on drugs. We basically were forced to sell the house, because we were so far behind, it was impossible to make up what we owed. I was totally devastated. This was in 2007, and I was suddenly faced with this problem which I had no idea about previously to this guy showing up at my home. So now, this leads me to my need of raising funds. The house is now up for sale, and I desperately want to buy back my pride and joy, my home. So if you could please help me, in any way. Donations small and large, would be greatly appreciated. May God bless you all, and keep giving us the gift and the resources to keep helping one another. I would be more than happy to help anyone in need of home repairs who can help me reach my goal and get my home back.
