The housing market in San Diego isn’t the easiest to get into, but if you know which partners to work with, you could find yourself a homeowner sooner rather than later.

Did you know that Mission Fed offers Home Loans? That’s right—you can get a credit union Home Loan from a local partner who cares about the San Diego community as much as you do. Plus, Mission Fed services most of our Mortgage Loans in San Diego throughout the life of the loan.

How do you take advantage of a housing market in high demand? You secure a Mortgage Loan with a low rate and you find your new home and sell your current home using HomeAdvantage®. The HomeAdvantage program is made available to you through a relationship between Mission Fed and CU Realty Services. Check out the advantages of the service and savings provided by HomeAdvantage:
