Floating Homes
Seattle Credit Union now offers financing options for the purchase or refinance of floating homes. Our loan programs offer competitive rates, low fees and no prepayment penalties.

In addition, Seattle Credit Union is a member of Seattle's Floating Home Association. Through this association we know and can share many of the resources available to help you learn more about this lifestyle and how to find and finance your new residence on the water. Learn more about the Floating Home Association at www.seattlefloatinghomes.org or call us for a list of resources.

If you are in the market to home on the water, contact Seattle Credit Union at 206.398.5888 to start your pre-approval or apply online. Once the process is underway, we can also provide a list of real estate professionals experienced in buying and selling floating residences.

What our members are saying:

Speech Bubble

"We have our closing this evening and I wanted to thank you for all the work you put into our multiple (and future) loans with you. It is such a pleasure to work with you on these. You understand all the issues, are very helpful, responsive, and you've given me a lot of confidence in having our mortgages with Seattle Credit Union. We are so grateful for your hard work, friendliness, and expertise."

- Joel

"I could not be more satisfied. Despite the length of time, my agent was continuously responsive and helpful at every step, often well after 5 PM. I always knew where we were in the process and what was coming next. They worked very hard to get the three refis correct and balanced them out so we were not out of pocket any money."

- Marco L.

"We really appreciated the great experience you provided for our mortgage loan. Your communications were timely. You led us through the process step by step. And you were so fast in getting the process completed! It was really refreshing to work with you."

- Chris
