Floating Homes
SMCU 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, SMCU 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 SMCU at 206-398-5888 to start your preapproval 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.

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.
