8/10 LendingTree’s mortgage lender rating

LendingTree’s mortgage lender rating is based on a 10-point scoring system that factors in several features, including digital application and closing processes, available loan products and online and in-person accessibility. LendingTree’s editorial team calculates each rating based on a review of information available on the lender’s website. Lenders receive a half-point on the “standard product offerings” criterion if they offer at least two of the four standard loan programs (Conventional/FHA/VA/USDA). In some cases, additional information was provided by a lender representative.

TD Bank mortgage products

Purchase and refinance

TD Bank offers the conventional Fannie Mae HomeReady® loan for homebuyers with a 3% down payment. For borrowers with spotty credit, a mortgage insured by the Federal Housing Administration only requires a 3.5% down payment.

Military borrowers may be eligible for no down payment mortgages guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Low- to moderate-income homebuyers looking for homes in designated rural areas may qualify for a zero down payment loan backed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

If you’re buying or refinancing an expensive home and need a mortgage for more than $647,200, TD Bank offers fixed- and adjustable-rate jumbo loan options. Borrowers can also refinance their home to get a lower interest rate, tap equity for home improvements or pay their loan off faster.

Homeowners can also choose from a home equity line of credit (HELOC) or home equity loan to access their equity. The HELOCs work like a credit card during the draw period with a payment based on the amount used. TD Bank personal checking customers get a rate discount, and can even choose to fix the rate on some or all of the line.

Borrowers that prefer a home equity loan with a fixed rate can choose terms ranging from five to 30 years, and also get a rate discount if they set up auto pay from a TD personal checking account.

Special programs

The TD Right Step Mortgage allows borrowers to buy a home with a 3% minimum down payment and no mortgage insurance. However, income and neighborhood limits may apply.

The Medical Professional Mortgage is a low- to no-down payment program for dentists and physicians. The program doesn’t require private mortgage insurance (PMI).

If you want to build your own home, TD Bank offers one-time close construction loans with fixed- and adjustable-rate options. The loan can be used to cover the costs of building and you can make interest-only payments on the construction loan balance. The construction loan converts to a fixed-rate mortgage when the home is complete.
