How do I start the homebuying process?

Step 1: Get prepared

Attending a first-time homebuyer workshop will help you learn about the home purchase process and make wise decisions.

Register for a workshop

Step 2: Find out if you qualify

Schedule an appointment with a housing counseling or lender. This meeting will determine if you qualify for a mortgage loan, and if, so how much you can afford.

Step 3: Shop for a home

After you know how much you can afford, you may choose to work with a real estate agent to find a market rate home or find an affordable (below market rate/BMR) home on your own.

Find affordable homes

Step 4: Look for mortgage assistance

There are a number of down payment and closing cost assistance programs available depending on the home you’re buying, your income and other factors.

Search for mortgage assistance programs
