When you are ready to apply for a home loan, you can do it online and get an answer fast, often within just a few hours. If you start the application and need to get more information to answer one of the questions, you can save the application and come back later to complete it.
Once you have completed the application and approval process, you have the option to go to any of our branch locations to sign your documents. We will bring your loan papers and a specially-trained lending professional to whichever location is most convenient for you and have you on your way as quickly as possible.
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 our Lynnwood Branch (click for directions) from 2:30pm to 3:30pm.
Space is limited. To reserve your spot, RSVP at email@example.com, or click the button below.
