Mortgage Products

Aerospace Federal Credit Union offers mortgage loans products that fit your needs and your budget. We specialize in providing excellent service, low fees and competitive interest rates. The following mortgage products are available for AFCU members:

  • Owner Occupied First and Second Mortgage Loans - AFCU provides financing for members who purchase or refinance their primary residence. These loans are for single family residences along with two, three and four units provided the member will occupy the property at closing or occupies it currently and will continue to occupy it after the loan closes. Loans to buy or refinance a member’s retirement home, not a rental property, are also available under this program (only single family residences, including townhomes and condominiums qualify—no units).
  • Investment Property Loans - AFCU provides Investment Property loans for members who want to buy or refinance a single family home, condo, or 2 to 4-units. Investment Property is property not occupied by the owner and is not the owner’s retirement or second home. Investment Property is purchased with the intention of earning a return through rent (income), the future resale of the property, or both. For a detailed look at the Investment Owned Property requirements, please see below.
  • Home Equity Lines of Credit - This is a great loan program for members who want to do some home improvement, pay some bills, take out some money for a special purpose (education, medical costs, etc.), or have a “just in case” reserve but do not want to touch their first mortgage. AFCU provides HELOC financing up 80% of the value of a member’s primary residence (i.e., HELOCs are not available for owner occupied units, second homes or Investor Owned property).
