What Is First Heritage MortgageMatch™?

We create opportunities for Credit Unions and Community Banks so that they can buy and sell First Mortgage Loans on a loan-by-loan basis.

Our mission is simple: help Credit Unions and Community Banks balance their portfolios according to their needs.

With the click of a mouse, Lenders can search loans based on LTV, Rate, Credit Score, Property Type, and Program. First Heritage MortgageMatch™ was created with the understanding that a specialized market could enhance collaboration which would result in increased loan volume; managerial optimization; and improved risk management practices.

We understand the importance of privacy and integrity. All communication is kept confidential until a partner decides to share the information with a potential match.

The First Heritage MortgageMatch™ program allows credit unions to sell or purchase individual loans or loan pools. An originating Federal Credit Union may sell up to 90% of the face value of the loan, which has created a vast opportunity for credit unions to both buy and sell mortgage loans, helping institutions diversify their portfolios, generate income, and manage liquidity and interest rate risk.

Originators/Lead Lender must retain all originals of loan documents and is responsible for the loan servicing.

1. Buyers

To diversify assets, generate interest income (at rates that are competitive with investments), and reduce excess liquidity, credit unions buy a percentage of a pool of loans offered by peers.

2. Sellers

To increase liquidity and reduce the ratio of long-term loans in their portfolio, credit unions sell pools of loans to other credit unions.
