Understanding Types of Tennessee Mortgages
Conventional Loans in Tennessee – Conventional loans can be made to purchase or refinance homes with first and a combination first/second mortgages on single family to four family homes.
FHA Loans in Tennessee – Federal Housing Administration loans are backed by the government and offer a variety of terms. It is a great program for first time homebuyers and those who do not have large down payments.
VA Loans in Tennessee – More than 29 million veterans and service personnel are eligible for VA financing that allow the veteran to purchase a home with no down payment.
Rural Mortgages in Tennessee – This is a government loan that is territory specific and income based, but offers you 100% financing on the appraised value for purchases.
Slow Credit/Alternative Income Mortgages – If you have slow credit you may not qualify for a conventional loan or a low down payment loan offered by FHA and VA. You still may qualify for FHA/VA with more money down or extra equity. You may also need to use an alternative way to prove income that may qualify through Non-QM loan opportunities.
First Rate Mortgage Corporation has funding sources with some of the best lenders nationally that FRMC make available to our Tennessee clients.
