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 also offers a 240-Day extended 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 5 out of 5 by from Great rates and outstanding service. This was without a doubt, the easiest and smoothest mortgage process I’ve ever been through. My loan officer, Angela, was a great to work with. She was thorough, knowledgeable, professional and very helpful throughout the entire process. I found her available via email or on the phone when I had a question or needed clarification. She had a few days off during the process, but the woman covering for her was just as great. I can’t say enough good things and I highly recommend Third Federal.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed My wife and I closed on on our new house on September 4, 2020. On July 31, 2020 we told the loan officer that we were vesting our new home in a trust and that we did not want my name to appear on any recorded documents. You’re bank promised us they could do this and that we would be able to see all of the documents before they were signed by us or the seller to make sure they were correct. We later found out none of this was ever communicated by the bank to the title agency. My name appeared on documents that were signed by the seller and also on documents that were to be recorded. We begged your bank to update and revise these documents before closing. Sadly, your employees did not care and told us that any changes were the sole discretion of the bank’s closer, who we were not allowed to contact. We asked your bank branch employees if our docs would be fixed prior to closing and they said they didn’t know. One employee even chuckled at this question. We also never received follow up calls from your bank when promised and to this day no one from your bank called to see how closing went. Even our title agency was unable to get your bank to respond. Luckily, our title agency was able to get us through closing but your bank did not help at all and you failed to live up to your word. Because of your failures my name can been seen on recorded documents. This is extremely disappointing given the assurances from your institution and the advance notice we provided. Your employees were indifferent to our needs and provided no follow up. This was a terrible experience for our first home purchase. We absolutely will not recommend you in the future. Your continued lack of follow up shows you do not care. We wish we could give no stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mortgage Purchase Ts and Cs good - but... The mortgage 'product' was good, but the Third Federal mortgage procurement process was not not a good experience. IT issues, process shortcomings requiring emergency visits to the closest Third Federal branch, etc. contributed to a less than desirable experience.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Home Mortgage As a customer I had trouble with the loan officer getting the details of the loan correct, especially the closing information which would have costed me an extra couple thousand dollars at closing. At times the blame for the mistakes were directed by the loan officer to the customer. Also, the appraisal was late which could have cost me the purchase of my home. If it would not have been so late in the process and other purchase contracts would not have been delayed then I would have switched to my secondary lender. Thank goodness my realtor was on top their game to help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth Transition Already a satisfied customer since a refinance in 2015, Third Federal impressed again with a move in 2020. Needed a bridge loan to make it all work and Third Federal couldn't have made it easier to sign things and stay up to date on the progression of both loans. Any questions was promptly answered. Great experience

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Service with Low Rates!!! I was referred to Third Federal from a family member and could not be more satisfied. The rates were great and I was in constant communication with my loan officer. I was always in the loop of what was going on. In addition, being a first time home buyer, my loan officer explained everything to me so I was never confused with the details. I would strongly recommend Third Federal to anyone looking for a home loan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best rates, friendly diligent loan officer Ilona is a great asset to your company. From the moment I met her, she was friendly, detailed, and trying her best to provide great service and attention to detail. She kept me informed of every item needed to get my loan approved and to closing on time. The rates were by far the best and most transparent on the web.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great rate, Covid19 affected process entirely Just about everything with the process has gone wrong. This is my third mortgage with This was my 3rd mortgage with Third Federal and it was nothing but issues. Our closing date was changed without our consent, it was difficult to get in contact with our loan officer, issues between insurance and third federal, issues between title company and third federal, and now I find out that my checking account was not entered in for my first auto pay payment. Just when I thought we were finished another issue comes up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lost Paperwork Customer service was good throughout our mortgage process, and everything was done in a timely manner, but after we closed on our home we received two phone calls informing us that an important document was lost and we had to drive to their office to sign it again. A month later, they called us about the same document and said it had been lost again and that we would need to come in and sign it for the third time. No explanation was given other than and they had no clue where the document was, which is very concerning considering it includes all of our personal info on it. They even informed us that they assumed it had been taken care of since it had been a month, which means no one followed up to be sure it was. We are disappointed about the mishandling and lack of follow through to make sure all documents are properly and safely received.
