Free webinar helps credit unions understand today’s buyers, grow more mortgages

CU Realty Services to host complimentary sessions focused on real estate trends

SCOTTSDALE, AZ (August 20, 2014) — CU Realty Services, a leading real estate services CUSO, is launching a new webinar series this month designed to educate credit unions on the top real estate trends that make an impact on their mortgage business.

The free webinar, titled “Three Real Estate Trends Every Credit Union Needs to Know,” will share the latest market research on how home buyers search for homes, find Realtors and choose lenders so that credit unions can develop more effective mortgage marketing strategies. The first session is scheduled Friday, August 29, at 10 a.m. (PDT).

“Home buyers want homes, not mortgages. Mortgages are just a necessary step in the process to get there,” says Mike Corn, President/CEO of CU Realty Services. “Credit unions that want to earn more of their members’ mortgage business should start by getting to know more about the home buying process and the areas that could potentially impact their business, as well as provide opportunities to improve on their services.”

The webinar discussion will cover:

  • The importance of being the First Point of Contact™ in the home-buying process.
  • How much influence Realtors really have on a buyer’s selection of a mortgage lender.
  • What buyers don’t know about their mortgage options, and how credit unions can help.

Credit union staff interested in attending the free 60-minute webinar may sign up at Dates for additional presentations will be announced soon.

Currently, CU Realty Services works with over one hundred credit unions and mortgage CUSOs in 22 states. To learn more, visit
