SF Fire Credit Union lending practices

We are a Bay Area-based organization that always puts our members, and the community, first. Which is why we choose not to make sub-prime loans. A sub-prime loan is a loan that does not meet Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac guidelines. They are much riskier for both lenders and borrowers. Examples of sub-prime loans include Alt-A, Stated Income, and NegAm.

We have always followed strict underwriting criteria that meet the guidelines set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. This policy helps us to protect the financial well-being of our members, the Bay Area, and the broader community.

 

Equal Housing Lender

SF Fire Credit Union is an equal housing lender. We act in accordance with the Federal Fair Housing Law and the Equal Credit Opportunity Act. Find out more here.
