Helping our members become savvy financial consumer is an important part of why Seattle Metropolitan exists. On these pages, you can find information about protecting your loan and your identity, getting on track if you have somehow stumbled off the path, and some of the technical information you’ll need to make sure you take full advantage of your SMCU membership.

Home Buying Workshop: Saturday, May 27


Home Buying Workshop

Join us for a free, one-hour workshop for first-time home buyers. We will be covering common pre-purchase issues such as budgeting, determining how much house is affordable, how to save for a down payment, how personal credit reports and debt-to-income ratios affect the process, and how the mortgage lending process works as a whole. SMCU is proud to help the community prosper by educating members and non-members on how to be a responsible homeowner. Our home-buying expert, Emanuel Ortiz will be leading the workshop.


SMCU will provide light refreshments and free training materials.


The workshop will take place at El Centro de la Raza (2524 16th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98144) from 1:00 P.M. to 2:00 P.M. in Room 307.
