We are excited to start the third year of SuperiorFirst, our own first-time homebuyer down payment assistance program. This program offers grants to fund down payments and closing costs incurred during the purchase of a first home for low and moderate income homebuyers. Homebuyers can earn up to $2,000 down payment assistance on the purchase of their first home when they finance with Superior CU. Ready to get started?
“These funds have been set aside specifically to help create home ownership opportunities for our members” said Phil Buell, President & CEO of Superior CU. “We believe home ownership is important to our community and we are committed to helping individuals realize the dream of owning their first home”.
Interested individuals can inquire about the program from their Superior Credit Union Mortgage Originator or call 877.717.2271 option 2.
