Credit unions are owned as member cooperatives. There has been a rise in the number of credit unions over the last several years.
Credit unions are suffering from the same sorts of stresses and economic challenges that bank real estate portfolios are suffering from. At the time of this writing there are approximately 8000 credit unions.
Nearly all are locally owned and operated and therefore approachable.
BankProspector has a complete database of every credit union with reporting on all their REO and non-performing loan data, plus contact information with names and phone numbers.
