Whether you're buying your first home or looking to invest, we can help you get there.
SCCU offers various types of mortgage loans, including fixed-rate and adjustable-rate loans. Call one of our mortgage experts at (423) 875-6955 to discuss the mortgage loan that would be best for you, or talk to a loan officer in person at your closest branch.
In addition to visiting a branch, current SCCU members can also choose to apply for a mortgage online. We recommend speaking to a loan officer before you apply, even if you're planning to apply online, to make sure you're applying for the loan that's right for you. (If you do not currently have SCCU accounts, you can start the process online or apply in person at your closest branch.)
