First Mortgage Loans

If you're purchasing or refinancing a home, think of MCCCU first.  We offer:

  • Competitive fixed and variable rates
  • Both Fixed term and Reset loans are available. Reset loans allow you to enjoy:
    • Low monthly payments because your loan is amortized over 30 years
    • An initial fixed rate for the reset term
    • A periodic cap that means your rate cannot adjust more than the stated periodic amount (and it could be lower if interest rates are lower at the time your loan “resets”)
  • Flexible repayment terms up to 30 years
  • No point and point options available
  • Low loan-to-value ratios may result in a lower rate
  • No pre-payment penalty
  • Lower fees than most competitors
