Purchasing the Car of Your Dreams: The Benefits of an Auto Loan

The decision to purchase a new car can be as life-changing as the decision to buy a house. And, like any other valuable purchase, it can be just as intimidating. Fortunately, there are options available to you that make the process of buying a car an affordable and rewarding experience. With an auto loan, you can alleviate many of the undesirable financial burdens of a full cash transaction or a lease. If spreading your car payments out into affordable monthly installments appeals to you, consider the other ways an auto loan can benefit you in the long run:

  • Save Your Money: An auto loan is a practical option if you want to steer clear of a large dent in your checking or savings account. Likewise, the extra money in your account may save you from future setbacks or accidents.
  • Build Your Credit: Taking out a car loan is one of the strongest ways to influence your credit score. By making timely payments on an auto loan, you can successfully improve or establish your credit.
  • Buy Your Dream Car: With an auto loan, you no longer have to worry about limiting your car choice. If you want the better, more expensive car, you can purchase it without having to worry about that huge down payment.
  • Own Your Dream Car: After paying off your auto loan, you retain full ownership of the car. This means that you can sell it, borrow against it, or trade it in. If you decide to keep it, you’ll enjoy the perks of owning a car and not having to make payments every month.

If you have your sights set on a car, talk to a Loan Officer at Westmark Credit Union or apply on line at www.westmark.org/ to discover how you can benefit from an auto loan. With over fifty years of committed service to the people of Idaho, we remain dedicated to helping you reach your financial goals.

Treasure Valley Employees on the MOVE

Amber Marathon

On May 19th, Treasure Valley employees Jonathan Galusha and Amber Johns participated in the Famous Idaho Potato Half Marathon sponsored by the YMCA. This year, there were over 3,000 participants in the 5K/10K/Half/Full Marathon and the event raised over $35,000 through entry fees and sponsors. The proceeds from the event will be used to give financial assistance to children and families through reduced membership costs for the YMCA, along with many other financial assistance programs. These reduced costs allow families to keep active and healthy when many families would not be able to afford the membership.

The half marathon is a 13.1 mile run starting at the Lucky Peak Reservoir and ending in Ann Morrison Park in Boise, Idaho. Both Jonathan and Amber trained for about 5 months running 5-6 days a week and both put a lot of dedication into this run. Other participants in the group were former employee Krista Knosp and her father Leon Knosp. As you can see by the times, all of the participants did a great job and we look forward to next year’s run and the opportunity to help other families stay active in our community.
