Pre-Approval, Purchase

A home mortgage is one of the most important loans you will need. UFCU has a line of mortgage products available for purchasing a new home or vacation home, refinancing an existing mortgage, or taking advantage of the equity in your existing home. Our mortgages are available in the continental United States.  Mortgage Options:


Fixed-Rate Mortgage
With a conventional, fixed-rate mortgage, you get a low-interest rate that’s locked in for the life of the loan. And with flexible terms from 10 to 30 years, you can customize a low monthly payment to fit your budget.

The Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing (SAFE) Act is designed to enhance consumer protection and reduce fraud by requiring a nationwide registration system for mortgage loan originators (MLOs). Each MLO obtains a unique identifier from the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System and Registry (NMLS). This information allows a consumer applying for a mortgage loan to verify the MLO is properly registered and to obtain basic information about the MLO’s mortgage lending history. Unilever Federal Credit Union: NMLS #457994.
