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:

  • Search for a home. Explore up-to-date online listings to discover your dream home.
  • Find a Real Estate agent. Connect with a network of preferred local agents.
  • Earn Cash Rewards. Collaborate with one of the HomeAdvantage agents to buy or sell a home, and earn Cash Rewards equal to 20% of the agent’s commission. On average, our members can earn $3,400 at closing. Learn more here.
  • Get listing alerts. Receive email updates when new listings become available.

With Cash Rewards equal to 20%, you could get a great deal back. For instance, if the home sale price is $600,000, your Cash Rewards would be $3,600. With $3,600 you could update your furniture, select some new paint and flooring or make your outdoor space a family retreat right in your own backyard.
