Scottsdale, Ariz. (Feb. 2, 2012) – CU Realty Services, LLC is offering a series of free webinars in February and March to help credit unions increase their purchase mortgage business. The firm’s turnkey real estate program trains credit unions to be the First Point of Contact to homebuyers, which not only provides opportunities to generate more mortgage business, but also rewards members with discounts or cash back at closing time.

“In the past, real estate agents were almost always the first person a homebuyer contacted when looking to buy or sell a home,” said Mike Corn, CEO of CU Realty Services. “And agents usually were asked to recommend a preferred lender for financing.”

Corn says the use of the Internet has changed the game plan. Many homebuyers search for houses online and pre-qualify for mortgages before even talking to an agent. This means credit unions have an opportunity to make that first connection with the buyer and generate more mortgage business.

”Our client credit unions have found that by helping members from the beginning of the home-buying process, they establish strong emotional connections,” said Corn. “As a result, members see their credit union as a partner in achieving the dream of home ownership, rather than simply the provider of the mortgage.”
