LOW DOWN PAYMENTS, NO PMI
With a good credit history, you can put down as little as 5% in most markets; for lower credit scores, a 10% down payment is required. SLFCU can loan 80% on a first fixed-rate mortgage and finance the rest with an adjustable rate second mortgage. With this loan structuring, you avoid paying Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI).
Consider this mortgage if you are looking for long-term rate and payment stability.

ADJUSTABLE RATE MORTGAGES

SECOND MORTGAGES AND EQUITY CREDITLINES
If you're a real estate investor, take advantage of our Non-Owner Occupied Second Mortgage Loan or Equity CreditLines with money-saving closing costs to cover repairs, upgrades, or anything you need.
