No private mortgage insurance means lower monthly payments for you.
A lender you can trust.
We've got your best interests at heart — and we'll be there for the life of your loan.
Top 3 Homebuying Tips

Buying a home is a big step, but we're here to make it easier! Here are our top tips:

  • Create a budget and decide what you can afford. Self-Help members can get free personal financial coaching through our nonprofit partner Greenpath.
  • Assemble a team of professionals you trust. Homebuying can be stressful, but having a lender and a real estate agent who are on your side will help. At Self-Help, our primary goal is the well-being of our members and borrowers. 
  • Find the right loan for you. Selecting the right loan — and the right lender — can make a big difference in your finances. Our experienced home loan team will help find the loan that's right for you. And if we think you can get a better deal with another lender, we'll tell you so.
The Homebuying Process
Buying a home can be intimidating, but we're here to help you every step of the way. From building your credit to finding the right loan to navigating the closing process, we'll be a partner you can trust.
