SCCU’s Members’ Watchdog is always watching out for your financial interests in all aspects of your life. One of the biggest life events many of us will face is the purchase of a new home. SCCU is here to protect you, not only with affordable and flexible home financing options
, but throughout the entire home buying experience.
SCCU has partnered with HomeAdvantage
® an exclusive, free member service to help you search, buy, sell and save on your next home. HomeAdvantage provides a single-point of access to trusted information, including online property listings, recent sales data, demographics, schools, crime statistics and more. We will also connect members to experienced real estate agents from a network of pre-screened, licensed professionals.
“After registering for the program, members enjoy the convenience of searching for homes right from the HomeAdvantage website,” said Gary Prager, Vice President of Consumer Sales. “We will connect them to a qualified real estate agent who can facilitate the buying process. As an added bonus, by using one of the HomeAdvantage real estate agents, SCCU members are eligible to receive Cash Rewards* equal to 20% of the agent’s commission. Cash Rewards can be applied towards closing costs or as deposit into the member’s SCCU account after closing. Since partnering with HomeAdvantage, SCCU members have earned $70,000 in Cash Rewards!”
Real Estate Agents are Key for Successful Transactions
While having a trusted home lender like SCCU is important, so is having a trusted Real Estate agent. Your agent’s full-time job is to act as a liaison between buyers and sellers. He or she has real time access to properties listed by other agents, and he or she is intimately familiar with the home buying and selling process. An agent knows what it takes to market a home as well as what you need to successfully negotiate a purchase. An experienced real estate agent deals with the same contracts and conditions on a regular basis, and he or she can provide advice for how to use the contract to protect you, whether you’re buying or selling your home.
HomeAdvantage is one more way that SCCU Members’ Watchdog
protects our members, connecting them to trusted real estate agents, saving time with the convenience of HomeAdvantage’s website and resources, and saving them money with HomeAdvantage Cash Rewards.
Prager encourages members, “Even if you’re not ready to get pre-approved or make an offer, start your home search with SCCU and enjoy the convenience and benefits of our HomeAdvantage.”

*The HomeAdvantage program is made available to you through a relationship between SCCU and CU Realty Services. Program Cash Rewards are awarded by CU Realty Services to buyers and sellers who select and use a real estate agent in the HomeAdvantage network. Home buyers or sellers are not eligible for Cash Rewards if they use an agent outside this network. Using SCCU for a mortgage is not a requirement to earn Cash Rewards. Cash Rewards amounts are dependent on the commissions paid to the agent. SCCU may have specific rules on how your Cash Rewards will be paid out. Cash Rewards incentives are available in most states; however, are void where prohibited by law or by the lender. Please consult with your credit union to get details that may affect you.
