Compeer Financial Launches 0% Down Payment Loan Program for 

First-Time Homebuyers

Program incentivizes home buying in rural communities


SUN PRAIRIE, Wis., (September XX, 2023)  Compeer Financial, a trusted leader in rural finance and lending, is excited to introduce its groundbreaking First-Time Homebuyer Program, designed to empower individuals with the dream of homeownership by eliminating barriers like down payments and Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) costs.

Compeer’s Rural Living Solutions (RLS) team is proud to unveil this innovative financing option, catering specifically to those seeking to purchase a home for the first time. With the RLS First-Time Homebuyer Program, prospective buyers can access up to $400,000 in financing to purchase homes situated in small towns and rural areas within Compeer’s territory.

What sets this program apart from conventional loans is its unique offering of a 0% down payment requirement and the exclusion of PMI expenses. These financial barriers often stand in the way of aspiring homeowners, but Compeer’s program aims to make the dream of homeownership a reality.

“People who want to purchase a home for the first time don’t always have cash on hand to cover a down payment or the PMI costs, and that can delay their dream of becoming a homeowner,” said Tim Tjosaas, vice president of rural living solutions at Compeer. “This program aims to provide credit-approved individuals the opportunity to reach their homeownership goals earlier.”

Compeer Financial’s First-Time Homebuyer Program reflects the organization’s unwavering commitment to rural vitality and dedication to supporting rural communities. Investing in a home means investing in the community where one lives, fostering financial stability, personal connections and community engagement.
