Give your clients more home than ever before.
With My First Texas Home, you can now offer qualified clients access to competitive interest rate home loans with down payment assistance funds. The benefit is simple: they get more house, you get more commission. And now it's easier for Texas REALTORS® to get the information needed to help your clients with the lowest-cost mortgage possible. TDHCA has teamed up with the Texas Association of REALTORS® (TAR), Texas Veterans Land Board and USDA to create a program: United Texas: Housing Initiatives That Work, to educate Texas REALTORS® on the variety and availability of affordable housing resources in the State. To find out more information, or to request a course offering in your area, contact the Texas Association of REALTORS® Professional Development Department at 800/873-9155. Texas REALTORS® that successfully complete the course are eligible to be included on our Web site as a resource for buyers pursuing homeownership.
To qualify for this program, your client must be a Texas resident who has not owned a home for the past three years. They must also meet certain income/purchase price limit requirements. Follow the Buyer qualification steps below to check client eligibility.
We also have the Texas Mortgage Credit Certificate Program (MCC) that increases a family’s disposable
income by reducing its federal income tax obligation. This tax
savings provide a family with more available income to qualify
for a loan and meet mortgage payment requirements.
Informative, 3-panel brochures describing My First Texas Home and the Texas Mortgage Credit Certificate Program are available in English and Spanish versions for your clients/borrowers! Each brochure includes the types of homes eligible under each program, four easy steps to becoming a homeowner using each program, and more!
