  • Optional Webinar: Those Darn DPAs!- Mythbusters Edition

    Demand for down payment assistance (DPA) programs is at a record high, but misconceptions sometimes keep loan officers and real estate agents from sharing these resources with their buyers.

    June is National Homeownership Month, and TSAHC and Down Payment Resource are taking this opportunity to educate housing professionals about DPA. Join us for a live webinar where we debunk common myths about DPA programs and share resources that can help make home buying easier and more affordable.

    You'll also hear from some of TSAHC's top-producing loan officers about the benefits of DPA programs. The webinar will include a live Q&A so bring your questions!
