Rejected for home loans Try CU says Conn. league
SEATTLE (3/13/09)--About half of all mortgage applicants are being turned down, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association, and acceptance rates on refinancings have dropped 10 percentage points. But consumers who are members of credit unions should check with their credit union, the Credit Union League of Connecticut said. In an article in The Seattle Times (March 8), Marilyn Kennedy Malia of Bankrate.com wrote about the dilemma. Tony Emerson, president of the Credit Union League of Connecticut, noted that members can look for loans at their credit unions. Credit unions may be more forgiving, and some credit unions judge loan eligibility based on the unique relationship they have with their members, he said. He noted many offer memberships to employees of companies and would know more about a member's job stability, he said. For the entire article, use the link.
