Financial options and mortgage assistance

Buying a home includes a variety of costs, including down payment, closing costs, and other fees. Depending your financial situation, you may need to reduce those expenses in order to make buying your home a reality. We can help connect you with the following types of assistance:

Mortgage assistance

For our eligible members, we facilitate closing cost and down payment assistance.

Mortgage insurance

We offer lender-paid mortgage insurance options to reduce your ongoing costs.

Closing costs

We offer fixed-rate loan options with no closing costs.

Down Payment Assistance

The Workforce Housing Down Payment Assistance Program was developed as a way for members of the community to obtain affordable housing. Assistance of 3% (up to $6,600) will be provided to cover costs associated with the home purchase.

How does it work?

A member would apply for a home loan, after we finish the preapproval the credit union will provide a link to an online Homeownership training module through BALANCE to complete the eight hour online learning module, which must be completed prior to loan closing. Upon completion the credit union is automatically notified.

FAQs and Tips

Yes we do, you find the property that is best for you and we will help you finance it.
Private Mortgage Insurance is provided by a private mortgage insurance company to protect lenders against loss if a borrower defaults. Private Mortgage Insurance is generally required for a loan with an initial loan to value (LTV) percentage in excess of 80%. In most cases, this will mean that you will have to pay Private Mortgage Insurance if your down payment is less than 20% of the property value or purchase price, whichever is lower.

It is my goal to make your loan journey go as smooth as possible and be an overall great experience. Let me help you achieve your goals of homeownership!

A tip from our Mortgage Officer

Divide your payment by 12 and add that amount to each monthly payment or pay half of your payment every two weeks, also known as bi-weekly payments. You’ll make one extra payment each year, saving you $24,000 and shaving four years off your mortgage.
