Veterans Affairs (VA)
A VA loan helps provide home financing for eligible Service members, Veterans, and surviving spouses. The VA guarantees a portion of the loan which can help the lender provide you with more favorable loan terms. To learn more information about VA home financing, speak with your local CMCU mortgage loan officer, or visit the US Department of Veterans Affairs website.
Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM)
With an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM), borrowers can have a lower payment in the beginning of the loan term due to an introductory interest rate. The interest rate adjusts annually after the initial period which may fluctuate payment amounts. The set period of time for the introductory interest rate are decided upon by the borrower and lender together. An ARM loan may be beneficial to you if you plan on staying in your house for only a short period of time or if you expect your income to increase in the future. CMCU offers a variety of ARM options.
A land loan can be used to purchase or refinance a vacant lot or bare land to be used for recreational or future building needs. CMCU offers both fixed rates and adjustable rates for these types of properties. Work with your local mortgage lender to see if this loan fits your needs today.
A construction to permanent loan is a single-closing transaction used for construction or remodeling of your home or other structures.

Home Equity Loan
This is a loan in which you (the borrower) use the equity of your home as collateral. CMCU determines the loan amount by the value of the property which is estimated by an appraiser. Home equity loans are often used to finance major expenses such as home repairs, medical bills, or college education. This loan creates a lien against the borrower's house and reduces the actual home equity. Ask your local CMCU mortgage lender if this loan is the right fit for you.
Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)
A home equity line of credit is a loan in which the lender agrees to lend a maximum amount within an agreed period where the collateral is the borrower's equity in his/her house. This line of credit can also be used for major purchases such as education, home improvements or medical bills. Now, you can apply online for a HELOC! Apply Online
