Apr03 CEO to CEO: New State Homebuyer Plus Program a Game Changer for Banks
Has your bank applied to participate in the State Treasurer’s Homebuyer Plus Program? This is a specialized, tax-advantaged savings account to assist Ohioans on their homebuying journey. Individuals who open an account will have access to above-market interest rates and may also qualify for certain Ohio state income tax deductions. From a banker’s perspective, please don’t confuse it with the State’s other linked deposit programs. The opportunities for participating banks are significant. One small community bank CEO told me this program is a “game changer” since it is a cheap funding source (0.8%). It is also a great way to step up marketing to a younger demographic with desires to become homeowners.
