*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.

What People Are Saying About TSAHC's Programs

 “Buying a home is the biggest financial decision we’ve ever made, and we couldn’t have done it without the down payment grant we received from TSAHC.  I’m so grateful to loan officer Stacy Schriever and REALTOR® Debbie Patterson for introducing me to TSAHC’s programs, which made it possible for our family to finally purchase a home of our own.”
-Felicia Bolton, Home Buyer


TSAHC’s programs make homeownership possible for many Texas families.  I am proud to be a participating loan officer in TSAHC’s programs so I can help families like the Pilgrims achieve their lifelong dream of buying a home.”
-Nicole Newton, Loan Officer with Prime Lending


"Buying a home can be overwhelming, but I feel very blessed with my experience. I am very grateful for the guidance that my loan officer Tina Chumley, and REALTOR® Chelcy Gilliland provided during the home buying process. I am also thankful for TSAHC, whose programs helped me buy a home in my neighborhood so my son didn’t have to change schools."
