Message from the President. The temperature isn’t all that’s heating up right now. The home ownership rate is recovering, and there are many first-time home-buyers entering the market. This is exciting because many would-be buyers were shut out of the market in the ten years following the housing crash. We’ve always worked closely with our members to help them with their first - or their next mortgage. Rates are still favorable, and it’s a good idea to start the pre-approval process to avoid delays once you do find the home of your dreams.
