GSB's First-Time Homebuyer Program

Our personalized approach helps you get approved quickly for a mortgage that covers up to 95% of the value of the home. Combined with a biweekly payment option, this is a popular mortgage plan that helps first-time homebuyers pay off their mortgage quickly and efficiently.

Benefits that make a difference.

  • Low, competitive mortgage rates PLUS a special offer to get you started
  • An experienced mortgage team voted Zip06's Best Mortgage Bank 2020
  • Fast funds access to finance your purchase
  • Flexible payment plans
  • Dedicated Loan Officer

Dedicated loan officers. The GSB difference. Not only is this your first time buying a home, but it's also the most competitive housing market Connecticut has ever seen! We know it's a competitive market out there. That's why you'll get a single, dedicated GSB Loan Officer to manage every step of your homebuying process - from getting prequalified, straight through to closing. Now that's something even the bigger banks can't promise. Call, email, or drop in to get started.
