CommStar Credit Union
THE ALTERNATIVE TO “ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL” BANKING FOR OVER 77 YEARS
ommStar Credit Union, in business since 1938, continues to expand, offering new products and presenting an alternative to a “one-size-fits-all” banking experience. CommStar offers services tailored to their members’ needs, ranging from Checking and Savings products, youth and teen programs, Mortgages, Home Equity Loans and Sallie Mae Student Loans, which can all be acquired through CommStar Credit Union. Anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Lorain County is eligible for membership. CommStar offers the same types of accounts as banks, but generally at lower costs, including business products and lending for community businesses. Because a Credit Union is owned by its members (account holders), they do not pay a board of directors or shareholders and return profit to members in the form of dividends. This also allows CommStar to offer lower rates on loans. CommStar’s competitive mortgage department helps homebuyers with low cost, low down payment, conventional home loan options that boast competitive interest rates. They offer Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA, VA and USDA Mortgage Loans.
Streamlined refinancing enforces their “people helping people” philosophy, helping members capture today’s great rates, even if you owe more than your current property value. For those building a new home, they offer one of the most competitive construction loan programs in the area. Open and fixed Equity Lines of Credit top off their line of Mortgage Services. CommStar Credit Union is active in the community and they want to be your one-stop for financial needs. At CommStar, they know their members by name and will help find the products you need, not the ones you don’t.
