SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 24, 2013) - Technology Credit Union (Tech CU) announced today it now offers super jumbo loans up to $8 million on adjustable-rate and $3 million on fixed-rate mortgages. Tech CU also offers home equity lines of credit (HELOCs) up to $1 million.
"We've seen a need for increasing our lending limits amongst our wealth management and private banking clients," said Tech CU's SVP of Wealth Management Rebecca Matteson Nelson. "For all our members, we want to be the financial partner they look to for guidance in achieving their personal dreams and business goals. With these increased lending limits, we now have the opportunity to help even more people do just that."
Nelson also said the higher mortgage and HELOC lending limits are important for the California real estate market and are in line with other lenders in the Bay Area. According to a just released DataQuick Property Intelligence Report, the Bay Area housing market picked up its pace in 2012 as sales increased year-over-year for the 18th month in a row. In addition, the median house price rose at its fastest rate in more than 25 years. With this pick up, Tech CU anticipates an increased demand for higher level, super jumbo loans within its membership and in the Bay Area market as a whole.
Tech CU's Mortgage Consultants are known for working closely with their clients, providing dedicated one-on-one service geared towards helping homebuyers find an affordable mortgage that works with their lifestyle. Tech CU also offers online application processing and a faster turnaround time on loan approvals with decisions being made locally. In fact, Tech CU offers a unique Quick Close Guarantee for those who qualify: If Tech CU doesn't close a buyer's purchase loan within 10 business days, the buyer will receive a $500 gift card.*
To complement its mortgage offerings, Tech CU was one of the first credit unions in the country to offer investment and private banking services to its members 10 years ago. Today, the credit union offers a full range of comprehensive wealth management and private banking solutions at each of its 10 Bay Area Financial Centers. Tech CU also offers investment-specific services to non-members. For more information, go to www.techcu.com/wm.
