Summer Loan Experts

July 21, 2020

Like most people I know, we’re sticking closer to home this summer. And with more time around the house, we’re tackling our list of home improvement projects.

The good news is that upgrading your home generally means you will increase your home’s value. Even better, we are offering Home Equity Lines of Credit (HELOC) with a remarkable intro rate of 0.99% for up to 11 months. There is still time to put in a new patio to enjoy the late summer and early fall evenings ahead. Or, if working-from-home is your new normal, you may be wanting to transform a spare bedroom or basement space into an attractive home office.

If starting-from-scratch and building a new house is on your mind, our home loan experts can help you get the best rate on your financing. Construction loans begin at 3.875% and Lot Loans are as low as 4.99%. We even have low-rate options for hard-to-come-by Jumbo Home Loans and Investment Property Loans.

With everything 2020 has brought us, you might be focused on paying-down your existing mortgage at a faster pace. If you’ve done the math, you know that you could potentially save thousands of dollars in interest with no or little increase to your monthly payment. We can reduce the years remaining on your mortgage with a refinance to a 5-, 7-, or 10-year term. Our rates begin as low as 3.125%, with no closing costs on most short-term mortgages.

Perhaps this is the year you are exploring the great outdoors in Utah and nearby states. Financing a RV or Boat is quick and easy with rates as low as 4.99%. And if you need a truck to transport you to your desired destinations, we have auto loans beginning at 1.99%.

Our new and greatly improved online lending system makes it easier than ever to apply for a loan from the safety of your home. For your convenience, most loan documents can be finalized remotely with our electronic signature service. If you prefer a personal conversation with a loan officer, we are happy to meet with you over the phone or in-person at one of our offices. Please know the health of our employees and members remains our top priority, and we are taking additional measures to keep everyone as safe as possible from the spread of the virus.

Thanks for choosing Goldenwest Credit Union for your lending needs. It’s always been our honor to serve you, and we particularly grateful for your trust and loyalty during this time.
