Real Estate Loans
Buying a home is a big step—and we're ready to help. SAFCU's Mortgage Center has everything you need to find the perfect home loan, as well as provide valuable insights into the home-buying process. Our Mortgage Center features a current rates tracker, calculators, insurance information, refinancing options, and most importantly, an online loan application.
A Wide Variety of Mortgage Options
We have a loan for nearly any financial situation. Here's a quick sample:
- Fixed Rate Mortgage - This "traditional" loan maintains its original interest rate throughout the entire life of the loan.
- Adjustable-Rate Mortgages - A loan that offers initial lower payments with increased purchasing power.
- FHA/First Time Homebuyers Program - We have several options that require minimal down payments and loan fees.
- Jumbo Loans - If your financing needs are greater, a Jumbo loan may be the right choice.

Home Equity Line of Credit
SAFCU's Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is the flexible way to access the equity in your home. Once you're approved, you can draw from a revolving line of credit. You only pay interest on the money you draw. As you pay it back, it becomes available again to borrow when you need a low-rate loan. Similar to our Second Trust Deed, interest paid on a HELOC may provide valuable tax deductions.1
