Ready to Own a Home?

If you are ready to own a home, but you're not sure where to start, Neighborhood Housing Services San Antonio (NHSSA) can definitely help. While there are several steps involved, NHSSA can walk you through the entire process. We will be there to help with credit reports, financial counseling, your First Time Homebuyer's Class and seeing you through the loan approval process. We can even help with finding you a home and a lender as well.

So, the quicker you get started, the quicker you can get to that big day where we present you with a set of keys to your own home.

To get the ball rolling, just call or email Valorie Garcia at 210-798-2392 or email her at vgarcia@nhs-satx.org.

The Home Buyer Education Program is a comprehensive program that is based on standardized curriculum. The classes are currently being implemented by the Neighborhood Housing Services of San Antonio (NHS). The Homebuyer Education Program is based on the elements of counseling and educating through the HomeOwnership Center. The key components are ongoing pre & post purchase homebuyer classes and foreclosure prevention counseling. The counseling part of the program may involve one session or there may be ongoing sessions for up to two years, depending on the needs of the client.

Step 1 - Contact NHSSA

Please call Neighborhood Housing Services SA at 210-533-6673 to get started.  We prefer starting with a phone call so we can make sure you have all of the information you'll need to go through our program.

Step 2 - Submit a Profile Intake Form

Provide financial information about you and your family. This will help determine your program eligibility and mortgage affordability. Click here to download intake form for a one-on-one session.

Step 3 - Attend a Homebuyer Class

We understand that home buying is one of the most important things you will ever do. That's why we require that you attend a buyer training class so you know exactly what home buying includes. You definitely do not want any surprises after purchasing your home. To sign up, just give us a call at 210-533-6673 or send us an email using the contact form below.


As an alternative, you can take an online Homebuyer's Class. The fee is $99 for this option.

PLEASE NOTE: If you take the class online, you are required to follow up with our HUD Certified Counselor to complete the process.  

Step 4 - Find a Home in Bexar County

With our Mortgage Loan Programs, you can purchase an existing or newly constructed home. NHSSA builds and rehabilitates homes. So you can also choose from our inventory of houses as well. You can check out the NHSSA inventory of homes here.
