Homebuyer education and regional homebuyer assistance programs

Submitted By Walter Zhovreboff

The City of San Leandro will host a free homebuyer education seminar for the public on Saturday, November 3, 2012 at San Leandro City Hall.

The recent abolishment of California redevelopment agencies has taken its toll on home ownership programs throughout the Bay Area. The City of San Leandro continues to provide assistance to first-time homebuyers.

Thanks to the co-operation of cities such as San Leandro with other agencies and Alameda County, first-time homebuyers still have access to resources and services to assist them in purchasing a home, including free homebuyer education and counseling; down-payment assistance programs; and access to below-market rate unit homes. The ability to combine these resources and services can enable a first-time homebuyer to enter the housing market.

Topics covered at the seminar will include preparing to become a homeowner; process of purchasing and financing a home; programs, resources, and services available to assist first-time homebuyers; helpful purchase strategies in today's market.

Reservations are required and can be made at www.myhomegateway.com. For more information, call (888) 572-1222 x102.

First-time homebuyer education and counseling is provided through the Bay Area HomeBuyer Agency (BAHBA) - a regional, non-profit joint powers authority that has been contracted by the City of San Leandro to administer its homebuyer programs.

Saturday, Nov 3
9 - 2 p.m.
Helen Lawrence South Conference Room
City Hall
835 East 14th Street, San Leandro
