Mortgage Loans

We make it easy you make it home.

Greater Iowa Credit Union offers a variety of lending options to meet your individual needs, no matter where you find yourself in the home-buying process.

  • No Application or Origination Fees
  • Quick Closing Times
  • USDA, VA, & FHA Loans Available
  • Up to 97% Financing

The first step when buying a home is to work with your lender to get pre-qualified for your loan. You will provide some basic income and debt information so GICU can give you preliminary approval on the amount you can borrow. This is required by most realtors before they will show you any houses. Once you are pre-qualified, you are ready to house hunt!
