Mortgage Options & Rates

  • 1 While you are free to select your own real estate brokerage and title insurance company in connection with your mortgage transaction, we offer our members a voluntary program that includes listing discounts for sellers and rebates at settlement. Specifically to qualify for the rebate, you must be a Virginia Credit Union member and close your mortgage through Virginia Credit Union, use Virginia Statewide Title Services for title insurance, and use an agent from Virginia CU Realty as your buyer’s agent. Rebate void where prohibited. Certain restrictions apply. Not available in all areas.
  • 2 Points are a percentage of the loan amount. For example, when your loan officer mentions one point on a $100,000 loan, the loan officer is talking about one percent of the loan or $1,000. Lenders offer different interest rates on loans with different points. There are three main choices you can make about points. You can decide you don’t want to pay or receive points at all. This is called a zero point loan. You can pay points at closing to receive a lower interest rate. Or you can choose to have points paid to you (also known as a lender credit) and use them to cover some of your closing costs. Please note that a 1% origination fee is included in the APR. You can view assumptions and a payment example by clicking on a rate or APR above.
