The Best Tip of All
If you decide to sell your home, youíll be glad you protected it in the winter, and youíll be ready to protect your hard-earned dollars with the Union Plus Mortgage and Real Estate program. With competitive interest rates, low down payments, and strike and unemployment/disability benefits, it offers the best value around.
Members who use the mortgage and the real estate portions of the program to purchase a home also receive a $350 closing-cost credit, which covers the typical cost of the applicantís credit check and home appraisal fees.
The program also features a convenient application process. Applications can be handled over the phone or in person in areas where the lender, Chase Mortgage, has a branch office. For a list of branch office locations, visit the Union Privilege Web site at www.unionprivilege.org. While youíre at the site, be sure to check out the new Home Finance Center. Itís a valuable resource for home buyers and includes a step-by-step explanation of the mortgage process, planning calculators and a sample application.
