*TSAHC defines a first-time home buyer as any family or individual that has not owned or had an ownership interest in a home within the past three years. Ownership interest is defined as any person who is living in the home as his or her principal residence and is listed on the deed of trust. For married couples, both spouses hold an ownership interest, even if only one is listed on the deed of trust.
