What We Do

We turn home searchers into homeowners.

The Down Payment Resource (DPR) story began in 2008 as an effort to help bridge the gap between eligible homebuyers and hard-to-find down payment programs. Through strategic business partnerships, advocacy, and education, we promote awareness of these programs and get more buyers into homes.

Creativity and Innovation

DPR creates opportunity for homebuyers, real estate agents, and lenders by uncovering programs that can help with the number one obstacle to homeownership – the down payment. Our unique, innovative technology is the first of its kind to assemble a comprehensive, nationwide database of homebuyer assistance programs and automate the process of matching eligible buyers and properties to these programs.

DPR has been recognized as one of the most innovative technology companies by HousingWire TECH100™, and by Inman News as “Most Innovative New Technology.” DPR’s CEO, Rob Chrane, was also recognized as a HousingWire Vanguard for his leadership in the housing economy.

Our mission is to help our business partners connect homebuyers to the down payment help they need.
