ITMs Adding Service For Our Members
Hello! My name is Justin Michaelson, and I am the new e-Commerce and Social Media Coordinator for Metro. I've been with Metro for over a decade, starting as a teller at Saddle Creek in 2011. I've since worked in Cards, Fraud, and most recently in our Support Department. I'm excited to be in this new position where I can combine my personal interests in graphic design, photography, and writing with my history at Metro to provide insights, information, and updates, along with banking education, alerts, and hopefully some entertainment here and there.
In my first blog post, I'd like to provide insight into our implementation of ITMs, and outline some of the additional services and benefits they offer our members.

Home Improvement Loan: Good or Bad Idea?
Buying a home helps people feel a little more secure about their financial future. As the years pass and the mortgage decreases, a homeowner will own more and more of their home. The more home that is owned, the more equity is available.
Home equity is how much of your property you actually own. Thus, your home equity is how much of your property's value you've paid off. It can be calculated by looking at the house's current market value and subtracting the remaining balances of your home loan(s). This is an asset that can be borrowed against or cashed in when the home is sold.
