Third Federal Advantage

You shouldn’t feel rushed to the find perfect home. That’s why we lock down your rate at preapproval, before you sign a purchase contract or even find a new home! No other lender can offer a rate lock so early in the home buying process, protecting you from rising rates.

For more than 80 years, Third Federal has been a leading mortgage lender. Our mortgage rates are among the lowest. And now with our Lowest Rate Guarantee program, if you find a lower purchase mortgage rate, we’ll beat it or pay you $1,000.

Here’s how it works:

Easier:

  • Find a lower rate than ours? We’ll beat it or pay you $1,000.
  • Simply provide us with the other lender’s advertisement, webpage, email, rate sheet, or other documentation of mortgage rates.
  • In most cases, you’ll have a rate decision the same day.
  • And if rates go down further, you can lock again!

Earlier:

  • We can lock your rate at preapproval or before preapproval.
  • We can even lock your rate without an application.
  • We can usually beat and even lock a competitor’s mortgage rate before they can.

Longer:

  • We can lock your rate prior to preapproval, all the way through loan approval. You can lock your rate for as long as 120 days!

At Third Federal, you can still buy before you sell. Our Bridge Loan allows you to use the equity in your current home to bridge the gap to your new home. 

  • You can use the equity in your current home for the down payment on your new home.
  • Eliminate your existing home payment, so you have only one payment while you're selling your current house.
  • There are no principal or interest payments on your bridge loan for up to 12 months.
  • No application fee, cancellation fee or prepayment penalty.

Imagine if you could get a mortgage at today’s low rates and not worry about closing costs. With our new Low Cost Mortgages, you can, because you only pay $295 in closing costs. We pay all other closing costs, saving you thousands of dollars. And the interest rate is typically lower than what other lenders charge for their full closing cost loans. So go buy that new couch that’ll look perfect in your new family room!

  • Jumbo loans at discounted rates
  • Available on 10, 15 and 30-year fixed rate and Smart Rate for purchases
Most lenders charge higher rates for "jumbo loans" between $510,400 and $1 million. At Third Federal, we offer discounts on jumbo loans. Because we believe big borrowing deserves more bang for their buck, not less.
This lock goes into effect when you apply, because at Third Federal, we believe you shouldn’t have to pay extra just to get enough time to close your loan. Most lenders only offer a 30-day rate lock. If you close after that time period, your rates could go up. 
You’ll get a 60-day rate lock at preapproval. When you convert to a full application, we offer an additional 60-day standard rate lock.
Third Federal is committed to helping communities thrive. With our HomeReady Mortgage Purchase product, you can put as little as 3% down and get up to $3,000 in down payment assistance. To learn more about Community Support or see rates, click here.
Many lenders will transfer your loan to another mortgage company, who may transfer it to another and so on, and so on. That can lead to problems. Fortunately, you don't have to worry about that with Third Federal. We service your loan for the life of your loan. And once it's paid off, we make sure it's cleared off your record, too.
Unlike some lenders, our associates work on a non-commission basis.  So their primary concern is finding the product that’s best for you, our customer, not what benefits them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Customer Service - Closing Day Nightmare: Imagine getting to closing day and the financing your were depending on being slow walked due to your assigned lender “working from home” only reachable via email and being non-responsive on closing day. Horrible experience and thankfully our Realtor was able to help escalate to get things expedited in the 11th hour. I’ve been a long standing customer of this bank and they let me down on a very critical day when all our possessions were loaded in the moving truck and we had to sit in a parking lot at the closing agents office hours after our scheduled closing time trying to push the process to get the funding to close. Irredeemable, unprofessional, and poor customer service by the lending agent to allow the process to get to closing day before asking for the condo buildings insurance policy which should have been requested days prior and typically directly from the lender not putting that on the borrower to track down in the 11th hour on closing day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Low rates, and low cost Rates are incredibly low, which have been clearly listed on the webpage. My loan officer is quite proactive to support my mortgage working flow mainly via email communication rather than phone call or f2f talk, which is great for 2020 under pandemic. It's my first mortgage experience and quite impressive. As far as I have been told, few documents to be signed in the final closing stage. If there can be some improvement, I may say it'll be way better to be informed the borrower should pay the insurance by him/her-self rather than through ESCROW account.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service! While Third Federal offers competitive rates and is very reliable, what really stood out this time (we're returning customers) was service. Mark, our loan officer, was very helpful and kept us informed the whole way. When we had a small issue with obtaining the new title, he and the Third Federal team went above and beyond to make sure things got straightened out in time. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low rates, low cost and easy process. From the beginning the process was easy and smooth. The application for preapproval was over the phone and it took aprox 20 minutes. They call me the same day in the afternoon to tell me that I was approved and the amount that I qualify for. During the process my loan officer was very informative and keep in touch all the time. He answer my email very fast and if I call him and he was not available, he always call me back the same day. I was really bless and he was able to provide a couple of grants that help me a lot for closing cost. I feel very pleased for how all the process went through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Rate, Great Service, Simple and Easy A+++ Searched the internet for lenders, no one could come close to Third Federals rate and low closing costs. Condo purchases involve a bit more, and they made the process super easy and smooth and reassured me the entire way. Big thanks to all the employees from S. Florida, especially Nedra Hewell, who led me through the process. We closed early with no surprises. Highly recommended, give them a call, I'm so glad I found them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasure working with Third Federal It was a pleasure working with Third Federal for the mortgage for my first home. The team at my local branch was so helpful and did everything they could to make the process easy and seamless. I would absolutely recommend using Third Federal for their mortgage loans.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from New Mortgage Rates were still low and previous mortgage loan servicing has been excellent. However, somewhat disappointed in the underwriting process in general and response time from the loan officer. Seemed like I was getting a request for more info every other day especially involving daughter's student loans. Loan officer often had to go to someone else to get answers to questions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best bank for a mortgage I've had multiple mortgages through Third Federal. The rates are always extremely competitive, and the low-cost mortgages, refi, and rate-relock have given me a lot of flexibility over the years. All loan officers have been friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
