CU Companies expands mortgage product line

NEW BRIGHTON, MN (September 18, 2014)  CU Companies now offers jumbo loan products and Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) loan products to both Correspondent and Retail Lending users. These new products provide more opportunities for borrowers and an additional revenue stream to owners and partners.
The new product line features two distinct offerings wrapped into one set of guidelines. For conforming- sized loans (≤ $417,000), a non-conforming ARM option has LTV’s as high as 97 percent. “This option is an excellent financing choice for borrowers who may be frequently relocating, need a lower rate for a short period of time, or are simple savvy in mortgage options,” said Andrew Panagos, Chief Strategy Officer. “This non-conforming product is a very competitive option as a comparison to the Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac ARMs.”
“The jumbo product is also a viable solution for borrowers who need to borrow more than $417,000. The rates are extremely aggressive, lending guidelines are less restrictive than traditional jumbo products, and the process is handled in-house instead of through a separate investor,” added Panagos.
“We are excited to offer these products and provide additional opportunities for our owners and partners to close loans. As always, we handle each loan with care and do not back-solicit borrowers, and these new products are no exception.”

About CU Companies
CU Companies is committed to earning the loyalty of its owner credit unions and financial partners by delivering personalized service and competitive financial products.
CU Companies was founded in 1987 by three Minnesota credit unions to offer a competitive mortgage solution for their members. They realized that by combining forces, they could offer a superior product to their membership than if they did it alone. These three credit unions created a Credit Union Service Organization (CUSO), CU Mortgage Services, Inc., in which they shared equal ownership.
Over the years, other credit unions recognized that their membership could also benefit from the CUSO and purchased stock in the organization. As the number of owners grew, they realized there were other areas of expertise that could be leveraged to provide an even greater product offering to their members. Over the next several years, four additional subsidiaries (Title, Realty, Preferred Investments, and Member Business) were created and CU Mortgage Services, Inc. became CU Companies.
