Home Buyer Workshop. For more information, please Click For Video


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 $60,000 and $127,000 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 805-480-9991, extension 235.  Seating is limited at our workshops and we encourage you to reserve your place to ensure adequate seating.
