Qualify first- time home buyers through training and counseling classes.
Buying a home for the first time can leave one with serious sticker shock. That’s especially true in California, which has some of the highest property prices in the country. But there is help in the California Housing Finance Agency, or CalHFA, which offers a comprehensive selection of homebuyer assistance programs, mostly geared toward first-time homebuyers with low or moderate incomes. You’re considered a first-time homebuyer in California if you haven’t owned and occupied a home in three years. Contact ‘The Greater Works House, Inc.’ for an overview of CalHFA programs that can help you purchase your first home.
