First National provides residential and commercial mortgages. They offer fixed mortgage rates and variable mortgage rates.
A B lender mortgage is any mortgage funded through a non-traditional bank or lending sources but is still governed by B-20 guidelines. B lenders include Trust Companies, tier B banks, monoline institutions and credit unions. B lenders will cater to borrowers who don’t fit within the guidelines of an A lender, such as those with low credit, non-qualifying income or other challenges that could cause them to be declined by an A lender.
Rates tend to vary depending on a multitude of factors such as down payment and Loan to Value, term length, and intention for the property, rather than lender to lender. It’s important to shop around and compare mortgage rates from multiple lenders so you can find the best mortgage rate for you.
First National does not provide products directly to home buyers, so to get a mortgage with them, you will need to work with a mortgage broker. Your mortgage broker will help you negotiate with your chosen lender to help you get the best rate.
