In the past, I was told by my local bank that they would not finance anything under 50K on a residential mortgage.  Is this the case at credit unions?  I called a few today and was told their lending minimum was 30k but would not lend to a business. I know many podcasters say they only do business with CUs and doubt they would be buying properties in their name.  Do I need to keep calling other CUs or am I asking the wrong questions? Any help would be great!
