Whether you’re retired from the workplace or you have a lower income that doesn’t reflect your net worth, Spectrum Credit Union can help you navigate the path to homeownership.

While many conventional lenders will base their rates on a borrower’s income, or debt-to-income ratio, Spectrum Credit Union offers asset-based loans in which your total financial picture is considered. So if you are retired or bring in a lower income, but you have substantial assets, we’ll put together a loan package that’s right for you.

Good for:

  • Retirees with fewer than two years of employment history
  • Those with lower incomes but substantial assets

Key features:

  • Financing available for owner-occupied, non-owner occupied second homes, 1-4 units, and PUDs
  • First mortgages, fixed second mortgages, and HELOCs are eligible
  • Loan to value (LTV)/Combined loan to value (CLTV) for Refinance/Purchase up to 70%
  • LTV/CLTV for Cashout Refinance up to 60%
  • 15-year and 30-year term available
