First-Time Buyer Program
For 117 years, we have diligently worked to help our community make homeownership an achievable goal. With our First-Time Buyer Program receive discounted rates and fees as our housewarming gift to you. We’re here to help you through the process. No two journeys to buy a home look the same. Knowing the key steps and having the tools and team to guide you can help.
Receive a Discounted Interest Rate
First-time buyers receive a discounted interest rate based on current market rates. In fact, interest rates for our First-Time Buyer program are typically a full point or more below our conventional mortgage rates in an effort to help more people qualify for a home purchase. These loans only require a minimum down payment of three percent and have a loan fee half that of a traditional OlyFed mortgage.

First-Time Buyer Construction Program
First-time buyers looking to build a home benefit from a construction loan with as little as 5% down, while also enjoying a loan fee half that of a traditional OlyFed mortgage. Even better, we roll construction costs and permanent financing into one convenient package and we close up-front on permanent financing. No need to refinance upon home completion and pay additional closing costs or take the risk of interest rates being higher.
