South Carolina Federal Announces Best Mortgage Guarantee
08 Dec 2011

(N. CHARLESTON, S.C.) – December 8, 2011 South Carolina Federal Credit Union announces a new initiative to attract first mortgage business. The Best Mortgage Guarantee offers the best mortgage rate by comparison shopping any competitor’s rate.

“Buying a new home can be stressful on many levels.  With our Best Mortgage Guarantee members are reassured they’re receiving the best overall deal,” said Marino Cecchi, Vice President, Mortgage.  “A mortgage is more than just an interest rate—there are other expenses such as discount points and origination fees that increase the Annual Percentage Rate—we factor all of those components in our mortgage offer.”

Anyone interested in buying a new home is encouraged to contact a South Carolina Federal mortgage loan officer.  Those who have already researched rates can provide a South Carolina Federal  mortgage loan officer the link to the other mortgage lender’s offer. The competitor’s offer must be from a federally regulated mortgage lender’s fully transactional mortgage website. 

The Best Mortgage Guarantee is available to existing members as well as new members.  Anyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in Charleston, Berkeley, Dorchester, Calhoun, Georgetown, Orangeburg counties, and most of Lexington and Richland counties, is eligible to join.

Each situation will be unique to the borrower and their future home, and the Best Mortgage Guarantee may include: reduced closing costs, reduced interest rate, or a combination of both lower closing costs and lower interest rate.
