Bay Area Home Buyer Agency (BAHBA)

Mission at a Glance

BAHBA offers homebuyers a unique and comprehensive array of services, products and resources – all directed to assure your success in becoming a homeowner.

Agency Highlights

BAHBA was created in 1995, with the goal of providing a one-stop clearinghouse for a multitude of down payment assistance programs stemming from local, state and federal resources. Currently, we administer down payment assistance programs for seven Bay Area cities, as well as their below market rate portfolios. In the past two years, we have been able to place over 175 low-income households into homeownership. We have had zero foreclosures since the company’s inception, which we attribute to an upfront education approach.

Homebuyer Counseling Classes

In order to purchase a home featured on, a homebuyer must complete eight hours of HUD-certified homebuyer counseling classes. These classes will provide valuable information to help you navigate the home purchase process.

BAHBA can connect you to agencies that offer these classes in your area. For more information about our services, please give us a call or send an email. We look forward to hearing from you.
