TSAHC launched the On the House blog in 2014 to explore important housing-related issues, provide an inside look into our programs, and share other valuable resources.   

To stay up-to-date on issues affecting our industry, we often consult a variety of online resources put together by private foundations, public policy institutes, and other housing-focused organizations and entities.

On our blog’s first year anniversary in August 2015, we shared a list of our favorite resources. We updated the list in March 2019 and October 2021. This week we’re providing another update with new resources while also including past resources we've shared over the years.

Hello Rhonda,

Hud houses are an option when looking for a home.  You can contact HUD for a list of houses in your area.

The best way to get started with our program is to visit http://www.readytobuyatexashome.com and take our eligibility quiz. Once you do that, if the result indicates you qualify (we do require a credit score of 620 or higher for our grant), the next step is to contact one of the approved lenders listed on our website.  Let them know you want to use TSAHC for down payment assistance. The loan officer will take it from there, help you get started, and answer all your questions.

We also have free education courses and credit counselors listed on our website to help you understand the homebuying process.  Wishing you all the best.
