First Time Homebuyer Workshops


The City of Moorpark will be holding two workshops (DUE TO HIGH DEMAND, BOTH WORKSHOPS ARE FULL) to inform potential first time homebuyers about one low-income affordable home available in the City.  Interested buyers must attend one of these workshops, even if they have attended a previous City first time homebuyer workshop.  Seating is limited. Advance reservations are required.

Pre-screening applications will be given to participants at the end of each workshop.  This workshop and the subsequent application process will identify potential buyers for this home.

The available unit is a 4 bedroom/2 bathroom, approximately 1,400 sq. ft., attached single-family home in the Pardee - Waverly Place townhome community in the Moorpark Highlands area.  The low-income purchase price is $220,500.

This opportunity is limited to qualifying low-income buyers only.  Income limits and deed restrictions will apply. Preference will be given to City of Moorpark residents.
