Methodology

Bankrate helps thousands of borrowers find mortgage and refinance lenders every day. To determine the top mortgage lenders, we analyzed proprietary data across more than 150 lenders to assess which on our platform received the most inquiries within a three-month period. We then assigned superlatives based on factors such as fees, products offered, convenience and other criteria. These top lenders are updated regularly.

Third Federal Savings and Loan – Best bank lender

Third Federal Savings and Loan Association is a bank and lender in 25 states and Washington, D.C., with branch locations in Ohio (where it was founded) and Florida. The bank offers mortgage products including fixed- and adjustable-rate loans, 10-year loans, jumbo loans and bridge loans.

Strengths: Borrowers can find 10-year and other mortgage rates updated on Third Federal’s website daily, including for the bank’s 10-year low-cost loan, which costs just $295. The bank also offers a $1,000 rate guarantee and free 60-day rate lock (with an additional 60-day lock or extended 240-day lock, if needed). Third Federal also services all of its loans, so your mortgage will be originated and managed by the same entity.

Weaknesses: Third Federal is not licensed in every state, and if you’re looking for a government loan (such as an FHA loan), you’ll have to look elsewhere.

Cardinal Financial Company – Best non-bank lender

Cardinal Financial Company, which also does business as Sebonic Financial, is a national mortgage lender with both brick-and-mortar locations and online service. It offers a diverse range of mortgage products, including conventional and government loans.

Strengths: Cardinal Financial is one of many mortgage lenders that accepts a down payment as low as 3 percent for a conventional loan (if you’re eligible). The lender also accepts lower credit scores for some government loans, which can make it easier to get approved for a mortgage.

Weaknesses: You won’t find a breakdown of interest rates or costs on Cardinal Financial’s website; you’ll need to fill out a form online to consult with a loan officer and get a rate quote.

Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation – Best overall

Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation, which also does business as Homefinity, is a large national mortgage lender that prides itself on its ability to quickly turn around mortgages, including 10-year loans.

Strengths: If you have a lower credit score, Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation can help you boost it through its credit program, which creates a credit improvement plan for you free of charge.

Weaknesses: If you want to get preapproved, you’ll need to contact a loan officer directly; you can only get prequalified online.

What you need to know about 10-year mortgages

How to find the best mortgage for you

Once you’ve decided which term is right for you, you’ll want to do your due diligence to find the best mortgage. Here are five kinds of mortgages to consider. You’ll want to do some research and compare mortgage rates from several entities, which could include traditional banks, online lenders and mortgage brokers. Prepare by reviewing your credit report to confirm it’s correct and have an idea of how much you can afford to pay each month.

The good news is that any time of year can be a good time to shop for a mortgage. “Mortgage rates are tied to the bond market, so there's not a good or bad season,” Moffitt explains. He adds that fees for a 10-year mortgage will be similar to those of other mortgages.

If you choose a mortgage with a longer repayment term and decide you want to pay it off faster — say in 10 years — calculate what your monthly payment would be if you had a 10-year mortgage rate and pay that amount each month. Be sure to instruct your lender to apply the extra funds to the principal. This is a good option for borrowers who want to pay aggressively but who don’t want to be locked into higher payments.
