Whether you are a first-time home buyer or a seasoned veteran, you likely already know that there are many options available when choosing a mortgage lender to buy a new home.

Many people choose large banks or corporations for their mortgages because they feel that they can get a better rate – but is that really true? Read on to find out!

  1. With A Credit Union You’re More Than Just A Number

When you apply for a mortgage loan with a credit union, you’re more than just a number, you’re a member. As a member of a credit union you can take advantage of lower fees, better rates and superior customer service. Credit unions can offer these benefits and more because they are not-for-profit organizations.

  1. You Could Save Money With A Credit Union

Credit unions are known for having lower fees when compared to most big banks. How can credit unions offer such great rates? Because credit unions are not for profit and member owned, profits are returned to members of the credit union in the form of lower rates and fees. This is different from banks, whose sole purpose usually involves generating revenue for investors.

  1. Don’t Have Excellent Credit?

Many people overlook credit unions as an option for mortgages, especially if they don’t have excellent credit. With a credit union, you are seen as a member, and depending on your situation we will try to find an option that works for you.
