We also offer free prequalification by phone or in person to potential homebuyers to determine the best mortgage programs to fit their specific home buying needs.
Do you offer rate locks on mortgages? For how long? Does it cost extra to lock in?
We do offer rate locks on residential mortgages, for almost any term needed: 30-, 45-, and 60-day locks, or longer. Additional fees and/or higher rates may apply for locks in excess of 30 days. Please call one of our mortgage representatives at (888) 705-9596 to get more information.
Do you offer “portfolio” mortgage loans?
Yes, as a credit union, St. Mary's offers a wide variety of portfolio loan programs for non-conforming properties and other situations where more flexible lending guidelines may be appropriate.
