While there are no specific time requirements to become eligible for each first-time homebuyer program, the buyer must currently live in Texas and intend to make the property his primary residence. Property eligible for the My First Texas Home includes single-family and manufactured homes and condominiums.

Many first-time buyer programs require at least one borrower who is a "first-time buyer," but that doesn’t mean you won’t qualify if you have purchased a home before. The definition of "first-time buyer" generally means a borrower who has not purchased a residential property within the past 3 years.
