Metro Credit Union CEO Meets with Reading Town Manager

Metro Credit Union, Massachusetts’ largest state-chartered credit union, is hosting meetings this month with city officials to discuss benefits of their new 40-year mortgage. Metro recently added the 40-year mortgage to its product lineup, which includes options for jumbo loans and bi-weekly payments.

Robert Cashman, Metro Credit Union’s Chief Executive Officer, met with Fidel Maltez, Reading Town Manager, at Reading City Hall this week to discuss the new offering. The 40-year mortgage will make becoming a homeowner a reality for more individuals, including first-time homebuyers who are having difficulty getting into the market.

“Our new 40-year mortgage is a welcome addition to our existing line-up of mortgage offerings,” said Robert Cashman, CEO, and President of Metro Credit Union. “I hope Reading residents are able to utilize this new product to become homeowners or save money in the long-term by refinancing an existing mortgage.”

Extending the mortgage term to 40 years results in a lower monthly mortgage payment, offering housing affordability for many who are currently priced out of the market, or those having difficulty refinancing an existing loan. Cashman and Maltez seek to spread the word about the 40-year mortgage to improve housing affordability for Reading residents.

“Metro’s new 40-year mortgage is a great choice for Reading residents looking to purchase their first home, refinance their existing mortgage, and more” said Fidel Maltez, Reading Town Manager. “I’m pleased to promote this new Metro product – anything that can make homeownership more realistic and feasible for the community of Reading is worth it.”
