First Mortgages for Purchase & Refinance

We can help you buy or refinance your home! We work closely with first-time home buyers to help them get mortgage-ready, and also work with members who are moving into a bigger house. We specialize in the City of Rochester but work with borrowers across the Rochester metropolitan area and central and western New York!

We specifically work to assist our lower-income members or those building their credit history to qualify for a mortgage. We can help with one-on-one budgeting sessions, credit counseling, accessing grants, and other resouces to help prepare you to buy a home. 

Genesee Co-op partners with two credit union owned organizations, OwnersChoice, and Credit Union Mortgage Association (CUMA), to offer a full range of mortgages to our members on 1-4 family properties and second homes. Please contact us to find out which option is right for you. Please do not apply on both sites.

"I joined the credit union because my bank was starting to charge fees for different transactions and setting a minimum amount on how much you had to have in your account. I decided it was time to put my money where my mouth was and support local businesses. So, I opened a checking and saving account with the credit union. In 2004, I got a mortgage with them - which they helped me stay on top of when I was laid off for a short period. I have direct deposit there for work and I did open up a line of credit there many years ago; I don't use it often but it's nice to know it’s there in case I do need it. People at the credit union dress differently, they don't wear suits and they're down to earth. When I go there, it's friendly and welcoming. I like the brickwork and the fact that they have local artwork on the walls. Most of my friends already bank there."
