Whether you’re a first time home buyer or looking to upgrade or downsize, we have the mortgage options that fit your needs.
A conventional mortgage is a type of mortgage loan that is no more than 80% of the appraised home value, therefore requiring a down-payment of at least 20%.
Less than 20% Down Payment Mortgages
A lower down payment or “high ratio mortgage” is a loan greater than 80% (to a maximum of 95%) of the appraised home value . This type of mortgage loan must be insured through Genworth Financial. The credit union offers first mortgages in this category that are either open or closed with terms from 1-5 years.
