Buying your first home?

Bank Mutual has been helping our friends and neighbors finance their homes since 1892. It's a part of our history and a tradition we're proud to continue today. Our exclusive “Mutual Neighbors” program is designed for first time homebuyers. We also partner with WHEDA (Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority) to offer WHEDA loans to first time homebuyers. Please contact one of our local Loan Officers if you have questions or would like to get started.

Mutual Neighbors

Purchasing your first home is exciting, yet for some it can seem like an overwhelming process. We understand—that's why we've created a program to benefit first-time homebuyers.
