Let your ‘someday' dreams start today!

Holiday Home

posted November 18, 2019 in Blog

The holiday season can be a stressful time for many of us. Whether it is trying to find extra money to purchase gifts for those close to you, fixing the water heater for the third time because you can’t bear shelling out the funds for a new one, or maybe you’d like to do a complete kitchen remodel because the whole family is coming to town.

We understand that even though shopping for gifts for those you love can be a stress reliever, however, it’s not as relieving when you see your monthly statement and realize you may have gone just a little overboard this year. But you had a coupon – trust us, we get it. This year, GICU is offering a new Holiday Loan to those eligible that can help provide you the funds to help cover costs that inevitably come up around the holidays. This can be anything from gifts, food, decorations, travel expenses, a new puppy, whatever you need. We’ve got you covered.

Now for our next dilemma, the broken water heater. We hope this doesn’t happen, but let’s face it, we all know life tends to get in the way when we least expect it. Broken water heater, furnace, or even worse…your oven stops working. Break out the space heaters and crock pots! Even with the best of intentions and most organized budget spreadsheet, these types of expenses can derail your plans and send you into crisis mode. But yet again, we can help. With a simple Home Equity Line of Credit, you can get back on your feet without a hitch, cold shower, or ruined meal.

Lastly, the expense of a home remodel. While we strongly encourage you to save as much as possible prior to starting a remodel of any kind, we are also here to help alleviate expenses along the way. With a Home Equity Loan, you can have more flexibility with your spending in order to take your kitchen, bathroom, master bedroom, backyard or anything you can think of, to the next level. Don’t let your current finances keep you from installing that farmhouse sink, soaker tub, or fireplace you’ve been dreaming of since you became a home owner. Let your ‘someday’ dreams start today!

Whatever your situation and financial status, Greater Iowa Credit Union is here to help try to make the impossible, possible. We have several different products and services that could be of benefit to you at all times of the year, but especially now when budgets seem to run out quickly. We would love the opportunity to work with you to make the holiday season as pain free as possible. Let us make finding the perfect wrapping paper your most stressful job this year!
