Attention, homeowners! As the days get warmer and our allergies subside (or get worse!), we are tasked with completing some outdoor projects around the house. You might focus on the inside renovations, like a new guest bathroom, or an easier upgrade like a kitchen backsplash.

For those of you wanting to go outside, it might be time to upgrade your landscaping or turn your home into a solar powered home. Whichever spring task you decide to pursue, Del Norte Credit Union has a mortgage department that is eager to share their expertise and compassion with New Mexico!

The DNCU Mortgage Team focuses on providing the service you deserve, flexible lending products for your financial goals, and a caring approach you've come to expect from a hometown cooperative.

As a cooperative, Del Norte Credit Union (DNCU) gives back to the local economy and also gives back to their members. With as little as $5, you can open a savings or share (checking) account online at or by visiting a branch—and just like that, you are part of a co-op!

Now, getting back to the savings part: DNCU is able to make your spring landscaping dreams come true with a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC).

What is a HELOC? A home equity line of credit allows homeowners to tap into their home's equity to get money for emergencies, big projects, or even paying for their kid's college tuition! This low-interest loan option is also beneficial because if you're asking for a $30,000 loan or less, there are NO appraisal fees*!

Paying off these types of loans can be easier than other high-interest credit cards or loans.

If you are not a homeowner but would like to be, DNCU Mortgage would also love to speak with you. You can call them directly at 505-455-5185 to set up an appointment. They specialize in assisting first-time homebuyers and can put you on the path to successful homeownership faster than you think!

Remember, DNCU is a trusted source of unbiased financial advice. With them, you won't get pushy or scary sales tactics because no one is trying to reach a quota. You will get an honest approach to banking—and that's what matters most. DNCU improves lives everyday. You can DNCU Everyday at
