Once you have completed the 2-hour MOHCD Homeowner Programs Orientation, please email us at Register@sfhdc.org to receive further instructions on how to schedule, prepare for, and submit documents needed for your individual pre-purchase counseling session.
Individual counseling appointments are scheduled on a first come first served basis and subject to availability, typically within 2 to 5 business days once we have received all of your documents.
To submit an application for a BMR property in San Francisco, The Mayor’s Office of Housing (MOHCD) also requires that you obtain a pre-approval from a lender approved by MOHCD https://sfmohcd.org/lender-list AFTER you have completed all education and counseling requirements. Please allow at least 2 weeks to obtain your pre-approval from a lender approved by MOHCD. SFHDC does not have control over the lenders’ schedules, but it has been our experience that it can take up to 2 weeks to meet with a MOHCD approved lender and obtain a pre-approval. Please plan accordingly.
