Made to Match Mortgages by CommonWealth One

Get preapproved today! Plus, for a limited time, approved applicants will receive $1,000 off your closing costs.

At CommonWealthOne, we believe that homeownership should be attainable for all.

We also believe that affording a home means being able to live a comfortable life in that home.

That’s why we designed a suite of loan options that allow you to achieve your homeownership goals while feeling completely stable financially.

Our Made to Match loans offer 100% financing options and other flexible terms to meet your needs and homeownership goals.

Made to Match loans are a great choice for:

  • First-time homebuyers
  • Self-employed homebuyers
  • Retirees
  • and anyone else!

Many mortgages force you to fit into a few narrow options. Our mortgages are truly made to match you.

100% financing solutions

When a down payment seems like a hurdle or that money might be better spent elsewhere - like home improvements or recurring expenses - you can still get a loan. You can achieve your homeownership goals and keep cash on hand. Ask about our low or no closing-cost options too!

Rate security options

With a wide variety of fixed and adjustable options, the Made to Match program enables you to find your rate security sweet spot.

Flexible debt-to-income ratio requirements

Every Made to Match mortgage is underwritten by a human being, which means we can make common sense decisions on loans. If you’ve been turned down by an algorithm, give us a chance to help.

Alternative qualification methods

We understand not all incomes look the same. That’s why we offer asset and bank statement based underwriting as alternative qualification methods. This is a great option for self-employed people and retirees.

Frequently Asked Questions

Unlike a Fixed Rate Mortgage (FRM) which has a single rate for the entire life of the loan, an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) will adjust to current market rates at various points during the loan term.   There are caps to limit the amount of the adjustment.  ARM’s typically have an initial fixed rate for a term ranging from 3 to 10 years, making them ideal for a borrower who doesn’t intend to be in their home for 30 years.   And because the borrower is assuming the risk of rate adjustment, ARMs typically offer a lower initial interest rate than FRMs. To learn more about ARMs and when to consider them, click here.

The terms of your financing are typically not a factor in your credit score.   While any new loan that is added to your credit report may temporarily have a minor impact on your score, making all payments on time and lowering debt wherever possible are far bigger factors in maintaining or improving your credit. 

We understand that sometimes the industry standard method of calculating your debt ratio might not adequately reflect your financial situation.  In some situations we may be able to use your assets or bank deposits in order to better assess your ability to repay your loan. This can be a game changer for many members, including retirees or self-employed individuals!

There are many reasons why you should get pre-approved now, even before starting your home search in earnest. The perfect home always seems to pop-up when you least expect it.If you are planning to buy in 90 days, don’t be surprised if you find the home of your dreams well before then.  Getting a preapproval letter in advance will allow you to clear up any credit or documentation issues that would otherwise cause stressful delays after you are under contract. Our preapproval letters are valid for 90 days, and can be easily refreshed should your home search take longer than expected.  And best of all, our pre-approvals are FREE!

Generally speaking, we can move as fast as you need us to. We recognize that the housing market is extremely competitive and we want to help you secure your dream home. That’s another reason why we strongly urge our members to get pre-approved well in advance of starting their home search!

Mortgage loans from CommonWealth One and Member Advantage Mortgage will NEVER carry any prepayment penalties.

Because the majority of closing costs you pay are actually pass-through charges from third parties (most notably the taxes charged by your county or state), the closing costs will differ for each loan. After an initial consultation, your Mortgage Loan Officer will provide you with a detailed estimate of the total estimated costs. But rest assured – the origination fee that you pay to us directly is standard for all members regardless of loan size, which usually makes it much less expensive when compared with lenders that charge a percentage based fee.

This is not an offer for extension of credit nor a commitment to lend. Programs, rates, terms and conditions are subject to change without notice. Certain restrictions may apply. All approvals subject to underwriting guidelines. Not all applicants will qualify. Member Advantage Mortgage, LLC is an Equal Housing Lender. We do business in accordance with the Federal Fair Housing Law and the Equal Credit Opportunity Act.

Member Advantage Mortgage LLC (MAM) is a subsidiary of CUSO Development Company (CDC), which is owned and operated by credit unions, including CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union, for the benefit of credit unions and their members. As such CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union has an affiliated business arrangement with MAM.
