The Area Housing Authority is committed to serving the community by being a resource for housing information. With the skyrocketing prices of homes in Ventura County, first-time home buyers are often overwhelmed with the decision of whether to buy a home here, continue renting, or move to a cheaper area.
Many new home buyers are unaware of State and local programs that help with down-payments, closing costs, and lower interest loans. Households with income between $55,000 and $113,000 may qualify for a variety of assistance programs.
The Area Housing Authority sponsors educational home buying workshops in English and Spanish several times throughout the year. The workshops are provided through a mutual agreement with experts in local, State and federal funding resources.
Workshops cover tax benefits, raising your FICO score, and loan options for first-time buyers available through the state of California.
To find out more or to reserve a spot in an upcoming workshop, please call 1-800-549-0337, extension 167. Seating is limited at our workshops and we encourage you to reserve your place to ensure adequate seating.
