The mayor's committee on home ownership in Kinston has released a home ownership resource guide to point people interested in buying a house in the right direction.
Kinston Mayor BJ Murphy says he started the committee in January because the percentage of renters, as compared to home owners, rose from 48 percent in 2000 to 55 percent in 2008.
Murphy says the guide puts people in touch with a variety of non-profit agencies designed to help people get homes and says the agencies can help people develop and stick to budgets, and learn more about things like interest rates.
Murphy says the guides are free and available at city hall.
