Tips for Buying a Home

Buying a home is a big deal. Whether it's your first home or your retirement home, this is one purchase that should never be taken lightly. Making wise choices now will pay off down the road.

Lafayette Federal will temporarily stop accepting new applications on all mortgage and home equity programs effective September 20, 2020.

Due to an unprecedented high number of applications, we have made the conscious decision to temporarily suspend accepting new mortgage and home equity requests until further notice. We will continue to support members by honoring all active preapprovals beyond September 20, 2020. Refinance requests received prior to September 20, 2020 will be given until October 1, 2020 to commit to using LFCU for their transaction and lock in their interest rate.

This temporary suspension will allow us time to work through our overwhelming member loan demand while continuing to deliver on our member-focused, service-driven promise.

Our Mortgage Loan Department is still open and available. Should you have general mortgage or home equity questions during this time, you may call (240) 292-5353 or (800) 888-6560 ext. 5353. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time.

We make the process easy.

Already own your home? It's time to put your equity to work! Your equity is determined by subtracting your mortgage balance from your home's appraised value. This can add up to a lot of cash. Make additions to your home, consolidate bills, pay college tuition, take a family vacation, or if you just want a safety net—the possibilities are endless.

Using your equity as collateral you can borrow at great low rates. We offer fixed and adjustable rate home equity loans or lines of credit and we'll lend up to $500,000.
