Boston Home Center

The Boston Home Center is the City’s one-stop shop for homebuyers and homeowners.

The Boston Home Center helps Boston residents purchase, improve, and keep their homes.  We offer training, financial help and counseling to first-time homebuyers, guidance and funding for homeowners for home improvements, and counseling to help families avoid foreclosure.  The Home Center also markets homes developed for income-eligible, first-time homebuyers.

The Spring EXPO

Thank you to everyone who made the Boston Home Center's 2018 Spring EXPO such a success!

More than 190 people attended the four-hour event at English High School in Jamaica Plain on May 12.

In addition to eight workshops about buying or owning a home, the EXPO showcased 41 vendors — including participating lenders, local realtors, non-profit agencies, and city departments — who offered information about resources and programs available to homebuyers and homeowners in the City of Boston.
